Yamaha’s High Thrust four strokes, are built for jobs that call for more muscle—like pushing a heavy pontoon, adding extra kick to a multi-species boat or maneuvering a sailboat through a crowded marina. Available in 60, 50, an all-new 25 and a 9.9 horsepower, their larger lower units and higher gear ratios produce substantially more thrust than conventional outboards of the same horsepower using standard propellers. In fact, when paired with our Dual Thrust™ propellers, (optional on T60/T50 and standard on our T25 and T9.9) Yamaha High Thrusts produce up to 60 percent more forward thrust and up to 70 percent more thrust in reverse.
Because the Yamaha High Thrust T9.9 is such a popular kicker motor for the V MAX SHO®, it’s now available with an optional, V MAX SHO-inspired sport cowl. This creates a consistent look between your outboards—and throws a whole lot of attitude on the back of your boat.
The Higher Gear Ratio on Yamaha’s High Thrust outboards make these powerhouses ideal for heavy pontoons and other applications that require an extra measure of muscle.
Increase thrust up to 60 percent in forward and 70 percent in reverse with a large-diameter, low-pitch Dual Thrust™ propeller. They're optional on our High Thrust T50 and T60, and standard on our T25 and T9.9, and are perfect for sailboats and pontoons. They can also be used on Yamaha Midrange outboards with 4.25" K gearcases.
Microcomputer Ignition adjusts timing to maintain optimum engine performance, economy and power under all conditions.
A Single Overhead Camshaft (SOHC) design creates a compact, lightweight, space-saving design.
Precision Multi-Point Electronic Fuel Injection on the T60 and T50 delivers the exact amount of fuel needed for optimum performance and efficiency. Yamaha’s EFI optimizes fuel atomization, further enhancing fuel economy.
Incoming air is routed through an Air Intake Labyrinth System that traps and drains water before it enters the engine's intake for maximum reliability.
Our 996-cc 60-hp High Thrust four stroke is a powerful addition to a day spent pontooning. Its SOHC four-cylinder design, composite long-track intake system and proprietary YDC-30 aluminum alloy result in a 60-horsepower four stroke that’s light, compact and generates tremendous thrust.
Our 996-cc 50-hp High Thrust four stroke has the extra measure of muscle you need for pushing heavy loads, such a pontoon or house boat. Its SOHC four-cylinder design, composite long-track intake system and proprietary YDC-30 aluminum alloy result in a 50-horsepower four stroke that’s light, compact and generates incredible thrust.
Our 432-cc 25-hp High Thrust outboard delivers the power and grip with exceptional efficiency. This newly redesigned outboard has the best power-to-weight ratio of all high-thrust 25 horsepower outboards. With the new design comes a no-battery-required Electronic Fuel Injection as well as electric and manual start on all models. The new 25hp High Thrust model comes in both 20 and 25 inch shaft lengths for a wider range of applications. Also included, Variable Trolling RPM Switch (VTS®) which allows slower trolling than standard in-gear idle for better fishing.
Our 212-cc 9.9-hp High Thrust outboard is the perfect kicker for bass, flats and multi-species boats. Available in both 20-inch and 25-inch shaft lengths, it can even power boats with 25-inch transoms that venture into deeper, rougher waters. At just 102 pounds, it provides a surprising combination of high-thrust power and portability.
† Weight refers to shortest shaft length, and is measured without motor oil, gearcase oil and propeller (except models 25 hp and under, which include a standard propeller). All Jet model weights include the jet pump assembly (weight estimated).
