The FT25 - another of our High-Thrust workhorses

Offering all the same technical features and advantages of the world-renowned and intensively proven F25 - but more - this FT version is like a powerful workhorse - designed never to let you down. Naturally, brilliant fuel economy and easy handling come as standard.

      High-output alternator - keeps the power coming

      The 20hp will be put to a wide variety of tasks, from fishing at night to coastal cruising, so its high-output alternator is a comforting feature, ensuring that power should always be available to start the engine – even after prolonged periods of idling or if you've been running at low revs and using numerous accessories.

      Shallow Water Drive system

      Cruise towards the shore with confidence thanks to Yamaha's 2-position Shallow Water Drive system. Offering ample protection for your propeller, it allows you to get as close as you need to be, no matter whether you're cruising a murky lake or the crystal clear shallows of the sea.

      Fresh Water Flushing system

      An easy-access connector on the lower cowling allows you to easily flush salt and dirt from the waterways without having to run the engine - just connect a hose and you're ready to go. This is a very efficient way to reduce corrosion and extend the life of your outboard.
