The marine and outdoor power equipment program at the Eastern Suffolk Board of Cooperative Educational Services Harry B. Ward Career and Technical Center on Long Island, N.Y., received a donation of more than $40,000 in Yamaha outboard motors and parts.

Yamaha Motor Corporation U.S.A. recently gave the program two 250-hp Yamaha outboard motors, tools, parts and software with which students can practice repair skills.

“Each of these motors is worth $17,000 and $18,000, respectively,” instructor Jason Pickerell said. “This amazing gift will enable our students to train on current production Yamaha engines that are very common, not only nationwide, but on Long Island specifically. This opportunity makes our students even more valuable to Yamaha, the marine businesses and the end user. We are very grateful to Yamaha for this gift.”
