Yamaha Partners With Sharrow Marine


Yamaha’s U.S. marine division has agreed to manufacture Sharrow Marine propellers and sell the props through Yamaha distribution channels.

As a result of the agreement, announced in a statement yesterday, Yamaha Marine Precision Propellers will cast Sharrow props at the Yamaha foundry in Greenfield, Ind. Yamaha will offer the props through its network of more than 100 boatbuilders and 200 dealers.

Sharrow CEO Greg Sharrow said the partnership “will dramatically accelerate our efforts to deliver the Sharrow Propeller to boat motors across the world.”

Jonathon Burns, general manager of Yamaha U.S. marine planning and development, said the pact underscores his company’s leading position in the marine casting segment and will allow the Yamaha brand to provide customers with additional propeller options.
