Yamaha announce DBW control for new F150 and F175

Yamaha announce DBW control for new F150 and F175

The Yamaha F150 and F175, two of the highly regarded engines in Yamaha's history are now also available with the benefit of the very latest DBW technology.

The impressive story of how DBW will bring a new level of enjoyment to owners of these engines starts with a new level of quiet, precise shifting and a quite remarkable added sophistication and ease of use, in terms of boat control and operation. But it doesn't end there. Full compatibility with Yamaha's unique Digital Network System brings with it the availability of an impressive array of other control functions and options, including not only a wide range of clear, easy-to-read digital gauges (6Y8/6YC/6Y9 and the new CL7, with its 7" colour screen) but also the exclusive Y-COP immobilizer security system. After all, peace of mind is a benefit every owner appreciates.

Yet another attractive advantage of the Digital Network System is the availability of VTS (Variable Trolling Speed). This helpful system not only provides a lower than normal idle speed, but also means the boat's speed can be controlled in simple-to-set 50 rpm steps from 650 to 900 - ideal for fishing, for example - or keeping confidently within the speed limit in waterways or marinas.

And there's more. Convenience and ease of rigging are significant advantages of the digital system and the new models also feature a powerful 50A alternator to deliver plenty of power in reserve, to satisfy the demands of today's on-board electronics.
