Yamaha Marine has broadened its line with new T25 and F20 outboards.

The new T25 is a high-thrust model designed to power heavier small craft. It’s based on Yamaha’s F25 and features electronic fuel injection, variable trolling rpm control and the ability to connect to Yamaha’s Command Link digital gauges.

“The new T25 has the best power-to-weight ratio of all high-thrust 25-horsepower outboards,” Ben Speciale, Yamaha U.S. Marine Business Unit president, said in a statement. “If you have a small but heavy vessel to power, this outboard delivers on every level.”

The T25 has a two-cylinder powerhead with two valves per cylinder and a single overhead cam. It comes with a patented dual-thrust propeller specifically developed for the motor. The large-diameter, low-pitch propeller is designed to push big loads in forward and reverse. The engine is available in 20-inch and 25-inch shaft lengths and in electric and manual start.

The F20 is a portable outboard that can be used across many boat types.

The F20 has modified ECU mapping and a redesigned camshaft for the lower power output. It has an alternator that produces up to 16 amps, which is 60 percent more output than the previous generation.

“The new F20 is an exceptionally strong outboard with the versatility to power a wide variety of boats,” said Speciale. “It delivers faster acceleration and improved boat performance under load, so when it’s time to hit the water, you don’t have to leave anything (or anyone) behind.”

As with the T25, a buyer can choose electric or manual start, and the F20 is available with remote controls, electric or manual start or the optional multifunction tiller control. The motor is also available in long and short-shaft versions. For improved portability, the motor has built-in carrying handles and two-position resting pads.
