YAMAHA TECHNOLOGY HELPS BOATS
MANEUVER AT SLOW SPEEDS.

New for Yamaha is a thrust directional enhancer that maximizes control and maneuverability. This design directs the water flow at an optimum angle, creating more responsive handling as the boat is turned right and left at slow speeds.

2014 Draft Comparison for YAMAHA’S 19-Foot, 21-FOOT And 24-Foot BOATS

The Yamaha Advantage: Yamaha’s compact internal drivetrain does not have an exposed lower unit, resulting in a draft that is up to 1/3 that of the competition. This means more peace of mind for Yamaha owners and the freedom to explore areas that other boats can’t reach.
