    Yamaha Customer Outboard Protection (Y-COP) option

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

    Yamaha's Ideal Anti-corrosion Protection

    You need an engine you can rely on and Yamaha outboards are renowned for their durability – which also means they hold their value.
