Yamaha Marine Group has announced its newly redesigned F115 outboard, which is not only more powerful and compact, but also now the lightest outboard in the 115 horsepower four-stroke class.

“With a host of enhanced features and benefits, our redesigned F115 is a true category leader,” said Ben Speciale, Yamaha Marine Group president. “The outboard’s incredible versatility makes it the perfect choice for applications ranging from pontoons to flats boats.”

At 377 pounds, the new F115B is 24 pounds lighter than the previous generation (F115LA). Weight savings are derived from a variety of new materials, such as a composite lower pan and cowling, a single ram power trim and tilt mechanism, and a new lightweight mounting bracket. The F115’s all-new powerhead provides increased bore and stroke, which now measures a full 1.8 liters. The outboard’s double-overhead cam (DOHC) four-cylinder design now has larger intake and exhaust valves for easier breathing, more power and better midrange torque.

Yamaha Marine Group, based in Kennesaw, Ga., supports its 2,000 U.S. dealers and OEM partners with marketing, training and parts for Yamaha’s full line of products and strives to be the industry leader in reliability, technology and customer service. Yamaha Marine is the only outboard brand to have earned NMMA’s C.S.I. Customer Satisfaction Index award every year since its inception. (www.yamahaoutboards.com)
