    Latest-generation engine design - efficiency and power

    The F8 is a very compact and super-efficient engine design, with twin cylinder, SOHC (Single Overhead Camshaft) configuration. The stylish top cowling and graphics also reflect the modern design approach to be found on all our latest-generation engines.

    Advanced tiller handle design and controls

    For the F8, a fully ergonomic design approach has been adopted for the tiller handle and controls. The handle is a very convenient length and the shift lever is ideally positioned on the handle itself, within easy reach, for confident, relaxed control. The easy-fold-up handle arrangement makes carrying and storage very convenient.

    True portability - and so easy to carry

    The F8 is renowned for performance with true portability and features many design refinements which make it a real pleasure to use. The large, comfortable carry-handle is now integrated with the steering bracket - and the tiller handle folds neatly back to make it even more compact on the boat - and it's a great help for storage too.

    Rest pad for vertical storage position

    This exciting engine features some other very practical refinements that make storage a breeze. The special rest-pad allows you to store the 8hp vertically - or simply lie it on its back on the deck or floor - and with the new fold-back tiller handle, you can be sure that your outboard will be taking up less space on board or at home.

    Fresh Water Flushing system

    An easy-access, front-mounted connector 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.

    Shallow Water Drive system

    Cruise towards the shore with confidence thanks to Yamaha's 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.

    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. While a unique YDC-30 aluminium alloy protects the engine's exterior parts, a zinc coating, high-quality stainless steel, and 5-stage exterior coating offer long-lasting protection - inside and out.
