Yamaha Marine Group introduced its new 5.3-liter F350C, which now provides five years of limited warranty coverage.
“The inclusion of five years of limited warranty coverage with the F350C underscores the reliability of the F350,” Yamaha marine group president Ben Speciale said in a statement. “We are confident that this benefit for our 5.3-liter V8 customers builds in exceptional value for Yamaha’s most powerful outboard on the market.”
Yamaha’s F350 has little competition in its class, according to the company.
The first F350 offered an outboard capable of pushing larger and heavier offshore boats. The company maintains that the technology helped to drive the trend to larger offshore boats — sales of boats larger than 36 feet have increased by 31 percent, and the 41-foot-plus class has increased by more than 300 percent.
