Technology the world trusts

Whether you enjoy the thrill of water sports or just relaxing on your boat, choose the engine that helps you get more out of your time on the water.

Every engine in our range uses Yamaha’s latest marine technologies, engine layouts and ingenious intake and exhaust systems – and our 4-stroke development has been so successful because, rather than just adapting ordinary automotive engines for the water, we design and build our marine-speci cation 4-strokes from scratch.

Without compromising on power, performance or usability, these specially designed engines also help preserve the environment with the use of pioneering clean-burn technologies.

Technology the world trusts

The lightweight 40hp is designed for simple installation and ease of use, but it’s packed with reliable, dependable power too.

Yamaha’s Electronic Fuel Injection system (EFI) delivers impressive power at high speeds, plus real mid-range punch and torque – along with outstanding levels of reliability and economy. PrimeStart™
makes starting up as e ortless as it is in your car – and since this is a Yamaha, that means rst time, every time. Our unique Wide Range Power Trim & Tilt system then lets you take full control.

Finally, for peace of mind, Yamaha’s Customer Outboard Protection (Y-COP) system protects your engine with a car-style remote-control immobiliser.

Digital Network Gauges

The 40hp is compatible with our exclusive Yamaha Digital Network Gauges, giving you all the data needed to maximise engine performance and e ciency, including a Multifunction Tachometer with RPM, Hours Run, Trim Angle, Oil Pressure, Warning lamps and Variable RPM control -and a Speed/Fuel Management Gauge with Speed, Tank Capacity and Fuel Economy.

Yamaha Customer Outboard Protection (Y-COP) option

The Y-COP immobiliser system is simple, easy to use and highly e ective – a neat and simple remote control locks and unlocks the engine’s ECM at the push of a button. This prevents your outboard engine being taken for any unauthorised joyrides, o ering you peace of mind when leaving your boat unattended.

cowling, with its powerful-looking shape, is as robust as it looks – and helps reduce noise too. So comfort and relaxation are your reward for choosing this versatile engine, with its smoothness, high powerto-weight performance and stylish looks.
