Our lightweight heavyweight – real portable power!
Packing more power on the water doesn’t mean you have to drag a heavy outboard onto your boat. The lightweight 8hp is perfectly portable and the comfortable-to-use, integrated carrying handle helps too.
Discover the joys of whisper-quiet operation and superb fuel economy, blended with our smooth, reliable 4-stroke power. Yamaha’s CDI Ignition System means reliable, first-time start-up, so combined with the twist-grip throttle and F-N-R gear system, easy, safe handling is the result.
This lightweight engine has many talents that make it ideal for tender duties, fishing or family fun. Of course, if you use your boat as a reliable work partner, then the 8hp is the perfect match.
