    High-output alternator - keeps the power coming

    The F20 will be put to a wide variety of tasks, from fishing at night to coastal cruising, so its high-output alternator is a comforting feature, ensuring that power should always be available to start the engine – even after prolonged periods of idling or if you've been running at low revs and using numerous accessories.

    Unique power-to-weight performance

    This latest-generation twin cylinder, 4-valve model has a true 'big-engine' feel and delivers unprecedented power for such a conveniently light and portable unit. Easy starting and smooth running are assured by the battery-less EFI system and a choice of electric, manual or electric/manual starting options are available.

    Fresh Water Flushing system

    An easy-access connector on the lower cowling allows you to easily flush salt and dirt from the waterways without having to run the engine - just connect a hose and you're ready to go. This is a very efficient way to reduce corrosion and extend the life of your outboard.

    Large multi-function tiller handle option

    This great option brings all the engine controls neatly within reach of the driver and provides an even larger tiller for comfortable steering, handling and manoeuvring. Whether pottering around the marina or flying along at the higher speeds this remarkable engine can deliver, it makes the F20 even more enjoyable to own and use.

    Shallow Water Drive system

    Cruise towards the shore with confidence thanks to Yamaha's 2-position Shallow Water Drive system. Offering ample protection for your propeller, it allows you to get as close as you need to be, no matter whether you're cruising a murky lake or the crystal clear shallows of the sea.

    Easy starting, security - and VTS

    Starting - even from cold or after storage - really is as easy as starting a car. Exclusive to Yamaha, the combination of our legendary PrimeStart™ and new battery-less EFI systems ensures that your engine fires up first time, every time. What's more, you can choose VTS (Variable Trolling Speed) and Y-COP immobiliser security options too.
