FT models use Yamaha's patented Dual-Thrust propeller to provide full thrust in Forward and Reverse – making light work of manoeuvring a heavy boat.
Offering the same technical features and advantages of the ever-popular F8 - but more - this FT version is like a powerful workhorse - designed never to let you down.
When you're looking for strong, immediate thrust and pulling power, rather than out-and-out speed, choose the engine that will deliver exactly that, whatever the conditions.
The T engines are purpose designed to deliver greater thrust and torque than a conventional engine and their special gear ratios help prevent cavitation and prop slippage. They work in combination with other unique features to provide the ideal power source for boats where load-hauling capability is more important than high speed.
The special propellers fitted to the T Models are not only of a larger than normal diameter, but have low pitch blades, designed to maximise thrust in both Forward and - by re-directing the exhaust flow - in Reverse too. This gives greater manoeuvrability, which is especially helpful when handling a heavier boat.
The T 8hp is a very compact and super-efficient engine design, with twin cylinder, SOHC (Single Overhead Camshaft) configuration. The stylish and compact design of the top cowling and graphics also reflects the modern approach to be found on all our latest-generation engines.
For the 8hp and T 8hp, a fully ergonomic design approach has been adopted for the tiller handle and controls. The handle is a very convenient length and the shift lever is ideally positioned on the handle, within easy reach, for confident, relaxed control. The easy-fold-up handle arrangement makes carrying and storage a breeze.
This exciting engine features some other very practical refinements that make storage a breeze. The special rest-pad allows you to store the T 8hp vertically - or simply lie it on its back on the deck or floor - and with the new fold-back tiller handle, you can be sure that your outboard will be taking up less space on board or at home.
Never get left short of electrical power. A High-output alternator is a standard feature on our T series of outboard engines, ensuring that power is always available to start the engine – even after prolonged periods of idling or when you've been running at low revs and using multiple accessories.
Cruise towards the shore with confidence thanks to Yamaha's 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.
An easy-access, front-mounted connector 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.
