Yamaha's popular portable F9.9 is now smarter and even more user-friendly.
The stylish new rounded top cowling - a compact design concept used on the current generation of state-of-the-art Yamaha four-stroke outboards - will now be a feature of the latest new look F9.9 model
The F9.9 has been the focus of other recent development work at Yamaha, with the intention of making the latest version of this popular engine more appealing to owners who love its strong combination of power and reliability, with ease of handling - both on the water and on shore.
First, Yamaha engineers have created a new ergonomic design for the tiller handle, which is now a more convenient shorter length and features a comfortable, easy-to-use forward-mounted gear shift lever within easy reach. The FT models will continue with the longer tiller arm design which is better suited to sailboat auxiliary usage.
Next, the latest F9.9 has been made easier to handle physically, with design refinements such as a large, comfortable carrying handle built into the steering bracket - and a new rest-pad for storing the engine on its "back" (propeller side down) when required.
Together, these advantages add up to make this popular, portable and ultra-dependable engine the 'smart' choice for any leisure or professional user. Above all of course, it's a Yamaha 4-stroke - and they don't come 'smarter' than that.
