YAMAHA Motor Australia is excited to announce the release of the highly anticipated four-stroke 25hp outboard engine, the all-new lightweight F25 EFI.
This fantastic addition to Yamaha’s four-stroke line-up continues Yamaha’s proud tradition of producing exceptional small motors designed for durability, reliability and above all else, enjoyable time on the water. The new F25 is about 25 percent lighter and has been engineered for skippers who expect the very best in features, performance and efficiency from their small outboard.
This new motor has been developed to exceed the performance and features of Yamaha’s 25N two-stroke, a motor that offered excellent performance and highly reliable operation and has powered Australian boaters for decades, as well as improve on Yamaha’s existing F25. The all-new F25 has achieved all this and more.
Its four-stroke, fuel-injected design delivers even better performance and the kind of fuel economy that makes small boating affordable and extremely satisfying. Battery-less EFI is an exciting new feature on this engine and to the Yamaha four-stroke range as a whole. Yamaha’s battery-less fuel injection achieves easy starting performance, delivering one-handed starting from a seated position.
Excellent acceleration, achieved through optimal setting of the EFI, puts the new F25’s performance at the top of its class. Through optimisation of the powerhead design and refinement of the transom bracket and drive unit, Yamaha has achieved the lightest model in the 25hp four-stroke class. Incredibly, this engine is 20kg lighter than the previous-generation 25hp four-stroke.
This lightweight construction allows boaters to get the same great balance and performance they currently expect from their two-stroke outboard engines along with all the advantages of the latest-generation Yamaha four-stroke technology. The new F25 comes packed with features and capability previously onaly available on Yamaha’s larger models.
Yamaha’s Variable Trolling switch comes standard on this engine, allowing adjustment of the trolling engine speed in increments of 50rpm from 750rpm to 1050rpm. This awesome fishing feature allows anglers to fine-tune their lure presentation while trolling. The F25 is also compatible with Yamaha’s comprehensive range of Command Link digital gauges, with options of both basic back-lit LCD and premium full-colour displays.
The engine is NMEA2000 compatible, allowing the F25 to share information with third-party multi-function displays, GPS units and fishfinders. For added peace of mind at the ramp, dock or trailer, the new F25 (electric-start models) has the option of being fitted with Yamaha’s exclusive YCOP immobiliser. Using a remote transmitter similar to a modern car, you can ‘dock it and lock it’ at the boat ramp, pontoon or even on the trailer to avoid unauthorised start-ups.
The all-new F25 will be available in a great range of configurations to satisfy every boater in this category including manual-start tiller handle, electric-start forward control and electric-start forward control with power trim and tilt. Additional kits are available for boaters who desire tiller handle operation with electric start. The F25 will be available in both 15” and 20” transom lengths.
