Yamaha outboard engine for sale, from us here at Pennine Marine in Ilkley, Yorkshire.
Based here in Yorkshire, near the border with Lancashire, we are northern England's largest and best equiped marine outboard engine dealership.The Yamaha outboard engine range has traditionally been an extremely popular mid-range of four-stroke outboard engines: which were all developed out of their excellent "earlier era" two-stroke engines.The Yamaha outboard engine range are generally excellent all-rounders, with good power characteristics, nice and light handling, good fuel economy and superb reliability. However they do not come cheap.....
Seen here is a brand-new F50 engine, suspended in mid-air in one of Yamaha's own publicity images. However, for the real-life images, please see below.

Yamaha outboard engine for sale, from us here at Pennine Marine in Ilkley, Yorkshire.
QUOTES AND SALE PRICES: NEW YAMAHA OUTBOARD ENGINES
Most new Yamaha engines are installed here in our Ilkley workshop "fully fitted and completed" - so all connected up and immediately ready to use out on the water.
For example this 50hp four-stroke outboard engine installation, photographed here on the stern of a "rather photogenic" new Zodiac Pro 420 rib - see here over at our older premises in Skipton a few years ago - was completed with everything ready (and rareing) to go, including - obviously - the Yamaha manufacturer's recommended PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection).
Therefore we normally request full details of your boat before we prepare a bespoke quote specifically for you for a new Yamaha engine. Our quote for a new Yamaha engine will not only include the Yamaha four-stroke engine itself: it will also include the propeller: the throttle controller: rigging: control wiring: instruments etc.
What makes a difference on quoting each customer's boat is the variable amount of work involved with removing the old engine; then any alterations to the steering: fuel line and especially making sure the electrical system is compatible with the new Yamaha engine. These installations on an existing boat all need to be fully compatible with your new Yamaha outboard engine - which is a sophisicated bit of precision-made Japanese kit. No back-street bodging is allowed !
For budgeting purposes, new Yamaha outboard engines normally have a Yamaha recommended retail price listed either include or exclude UK VAT (Note: the Yamaha advertised RRP normally changes in January each year).
Please note that post-Brexit, from January 2021 onwards, that because Yamaha outboard engines are manufacturered in Japan (i.e. their counry of origin), it is no longer worthwhile us exporting them over from the UK to Europe: i.e. us shipping them into any EU country. This is because these outboard engines now incur an substaintial additional tariff (EU tax surcharge) if imported anywhere into the EU from here in the UK. Therefore please don't even bother to ask us to export one across the English Channel or Irish Sea for you.
Exports to sourthen England are still commercially viable: so all inquiries from customers who are living south of the Watford Gap are always warmly welcomed....
We here at Pennine Marine in Ilkley however offer a substantial discount on the sale of new Yamaha outboard engines: especially if you live in Yorkshire. We have even been known to offer substantial discounts to customers who live in Lancashire (yes; times really are that hard up here in The North). Most new installations of Yamaha outboard engines typically work out at,very approximately the Yamaha current advertised retail price - "fully fitted" complete including installation; manufacturers PDI and including the dreaded VAT at UK rates of 20%.
Please see notes on this page for why this might vary a bit.....
From when your new Yamaha engine has been ordered (here in Yorkshire that means the deposit paid!) to completion - or delivery - of a new Yamaha outboard engine will vary slightly depending on a few factors.
This timescale for the availablity of new Yamaha outboard engines usually depends on our workshop workload and also how quickly the new engines arrive with us from Yamaha in their European warehouse.
However it is normally two weeks from Yamaha order to completion; slighly longer at the busiest times of the year. Occasionally up to four weeks if we need to manufacturer some bespoke parts for a more complex Yamaha re-engineeering project.
However this budget for a brand new outboard engine can vary depending on whether (or not) this new Yamaha engine installation is installed onto a "clean new hull": or whether it is a more complete engineering project.
More work is often required as a retrofit of a new outboard onto an existing boat. Retrofit projects and re-engineering will often involve removing an existing engine: then preparing the boat complete and ready for the new Yamaha outboard engine. This additional work may include dealing with issues like replating old instrument holes and cutting new ones for new Yamaha modern instruments.
Please note that (sadly) insurance replacements of Yamaha outboard engines often cost more than this basic budget: This is not us ripping off the insurers! This is due to the amount of damage that theiving b*******s usually cause to the boat's steering, controls and electrical systems when ripping the engines off. Therefore a new Yamaha engine cost exactly what we said above: however all the rest of these repairs (of everything which was once connected to the engine: and have been severed) just add to the total bill
Our workshop charges for the complete standard annual service on one Yamaha is total of This service rate is all inclusive and includes the dreaded VAT at 20%.
This service includes all labour (fully trained techician), genuine yamaha spare parts, genuine yamilube oils (engine and gearbox) and all consumables.
We undertake all recommended safety inspections - including checking kill-cords - as part of this standard service. We include a fully computerised diagnostic check on all Yamaha engines which are fitted with computerised diagnistics (ie like the modern F50 shown here in this photo, all linked up to the Pennine marine engine diagnostics laptop..No expense spared here at Pennine Marine, the techies in the workshop are state of the art 21st century high-tech; and even have their own laptop).
This Yamaha outboard engine diagnostics system allows us to see whether (or not) you have been a good boy (or girl) and show us whether you are looking after the engne properly and not abusing it. Yes - the computer really is watching you, even out at sea. We will probably will not be able to offer you a print-out: however (depending on the model) however- based on what the computer tells us - we will be able to offer genumie advice on how to properly look after your Yamaha engine.
This quotes excludes known running faults: repairs; investigation and any accidential damage (see our full terms and conditiions)
There are a large number of different propeller which can be fitted to a new Yamaha outboard engine.
The typical technical specification of the Yamaha outboard engines is as follows;
- Remote steering (however see separate note about optional tiller kit). (Steering gear is all sold separately)
- This is an electric start; some also with the yamaha prime start system (the E)
- The Yamaha is a four stroke engine - normal unleaded petrol (RON 90)
- This is a multi-cyliner in-line engine; xxxcm displacement (this is what us oldie's used to call cc)
- The dry weight of the engine HEDL is xxxkg
- Standard transom height is 527mm, so it is long shaft (the L)
- Extra Long and Ultra-Long shaft are availablee on most models
- The yamaha shave has power trim and tilt
- please check for NEMA 2000 compliance.
THERE IS ALSO AN YAMAHA FT OUTBOARD ENGINE:
SO an "FT50" MEANS 50hp WITH HIGH-THRUST GEARBOX.
THIS FT50 ENGINE IS GREAT FOR HEAVY WORKBOATS AND CANALBOATS
Please call us for full details of the Yamaha FT50 high-trust outboard engine
We offer a tiller conversion kit for some models of the Yamaha, like the F50. This allows the Yamaha F50 to be steered and controlled via the tiller: and this the engine is therefore self-contained. The tiller kit includes the gears and throttle and kill-cord etc. Please note that this is quite a skilled operation to convert from one to another: therefore we do not offer it as a DIY kit
The conversion kit for a Yamaha F50 is normally sold in conjunction with the Zodiac Milpro boats; for use by military and professional operators. Therefore please contact ourselves for details.
The Yamaha outboard engine is an excellent outboard, well-proven and highly reliable. Therefore Yamaha genuine spare parts should only be needed for routinue maintainance.
Whilst I might be tempting fate here with this next remark: we have never seen a major yammy with a warranty fault: let alone a serious failure. However we have seen the odd few (say no more....) that have been ruined by poor maintainance, in those particular cases what we would call "bodging over a number of years" ("shame" I hear you say...)
Normal servicing intervals on the Yamaha outboard engine are every 100 hours, so, for most leisure boating customers, annually.
The Yamaha servicing kit - all the Yamaha spare parts - for their four-stroke engines are widely available. These spare parts are gaskets: oil filters: thermostats; fuel filter (vital) anodes, impellers and of course a few spark plugs. Then also some engine oil and gearbox oil.
The standard "100 hour" service kits for new Yamaha outboard engines are quoted based on your on unique engine serial numbers. Prices for service kits are including VAT. The oils are sold separately (i.e extra) to these parts. Please note the Yamaha spare parts "100 hr kit" does not include oils; the thermostat nor belts etc. There are severa additional items fir a 1000 hour servuce: contact courselves for details.
A new Yamaha F50 outboard engine is supplied complete with a new throttle controller and instruments.
Here in this image, the Yamaha throttle controller (a 703) is on the port side of this jockey seat console (the right-hand side if you are a land-lubber) and the Yamaha multi-function instrument guage is mounted of the starboard side (if you are a land-lubber I shall let you work that one out for yourself).
This boat is a Zodiac 420 rib, fitted with a new Yamaha F50 outboard engine. This was a bespoke project which was exported out from Yorkshire to a private customer who is based in the deepest darkest "Poldark country" of south-west of England. Believe it or not, it took us a full two days to get there and get back; so remote is south west England from the natural thriving centre of the UK. However, despite that customer being within a few minutes of several local boating dealerships, he came here to buy a new boat. I wonder why.....? Is it because we are such nice chaps - or is it because we are based in Yorkshire, that we offer great value for money?
This rib boat is seen here in our old yard over in neraby Skipton back in 2017 - just before it left "sunny Skipton" . A Suzuki DF60 is on the oranage Humber rib in the background.
However please note that wedo not supply can supply a "Yamaha F50 engine in a box only - for fitting by others":
We advise that a high degree of engineering competence is needed to install one of these new Yamaha engines. Ideally you need access to the yamaha diagnostic computer system, which is needed to iniitialise the engine. Please call us for advice
This new Yamaha engine is supplied complete in the box (see photo) with separate Yamaha rigging loom: Yamaha throttle controller (usally a 703 controller) and new Yamaha propeller.
We aways recommend that - simply for maximum hydro-dynamic efficency - that the genuine Yamaha cardboard box is completely removed from the new Yamaha outboard engine before the boat is first put in the water. This finishing touch, a "neat trick of the trade" is a hint which we are quite happy to share with our more knowledgeable customers.
This removal of the cardboard box will allow the maximum possible flow of water (the essential H20 chemical compound) to circulate more freely around the bottom of the new Yamaha engine. This maximises the depth of water (measured in parts of fathoms) around your new Yamaha computer-designed multi-bladed propeller. This simple trick - one which is easily overlooked when reading the Yamaha manufacturers installation manual - therefore improves the speed, performance and efficency of your new Yamaha outboard engine.
Joking apart: we no longer "supply only" a boxed-up new Yamaha engine to fit yourself: to your own boat: Please call us on 0113 532 8575 and we will be quite happy to give some straight, honest and impartial advice.
