Call for Price
Yamaha’s mid-powered Portables, the F9.9 and F8, provide nimble, lightweight, efficient power you can take with you. These SOHC 212cc two-cylinder wonders are both under 90 pounds. They feature carrying handles, resting pads and on-side storage capability; so they easily ride along to the cabin or your hunting spot. With forward-mounted controls and optional power tilt, they make operation easy—perfect for spending a full day fishing the lake or skimming the marsh with your decoys. They also serve as excellent kickers on multi-species boats, with the 9.9 even offering a high-thrust model and an optional V MAX SHO®-style sport cowl for a consistent look. Add a little more power to your day with Yamaha’s portable F9.9 and F8.
- Compact, lightweight design: A two-cylinder, single-overhead-camshaft platform and streamlined intake manifold provides an efficient, light design.
- Responsive Acceleration: An acceleration pump on the F9.9 and F8 gives these engines the fuel they need--when they need it--like during rapid throttle advance. This ensures responsive acceleration.
- Streamlined Intake: An intake silencer and manifold on the F9.9 and F8 result in more direct airflow, for minimum noise and maximum power.
- Optimal Operation: A CDI Microcomputer Ignition monitors throttle position, engine speed and atmospheric conditions in order to precisely adjust ignition timing under all conditions for optimum ignition performance, ensuring smooth and reliable operation
- Corrosion Protection: Combined with our proprietary alloy (YDC-30), our exclusive Phaze Five™ anti-corrosive paint system provides a tough, five-layer barrier against corrosion. This protection is standard on all Yamaha four-stroke outboards.
- Engine Warning System: Protects the outboard with a range of functions including: overheat protection and low-oil-pressure warning (automatically reducing maximum RPM to 2000), over-rev protection, start-in-gear protection and shift-in prevention at open throttle.
- Solid and Dependable: Incoming air is routed through the Air Intake Labyrinth System that traps and drains water before it enters the engine's intake for maximum reliability.
- Wet Sump: A pressurized oil delivery system incorporates a compact and durable oil pump to keep all of the moving parts of their SOHC systems lubricated and running smoothly for maximum reliability.
- Smart Evolution: The F9.9 and F8 feature a new shorter handle for more comfortable operation. This also ensures that when the handle in hinged back, it tucks in tighter to the cowl for more stable, flexible storage.
- Portability and Storage: Built-in front and rear handles make these lightweights easy to carry. Resting pads and an easy oil retention system allow for convenient on-side storage without cowling scuffs or oil leakage.
- Propeller Protection: Yamaha's Shallow Water Drive, standard on all 9.9- and 8-hp tiller handle models, helps keep the propeller and lower unit out of harm's way in shallow water.
- Our 212-cc 8-hp portable outboard features 7.5 percent more displacement than its previous design. This SOHC two-cylinder four stroke delivers a nice balance of power, performance and portability for jon boats and inflatables. Its new, shorter tiller handle makes operation more comfortable, so you can make a whole day of it.
