Yamaha has taken a significant leap forward in the maritime industry with the launch of its latest outboard engine, the 350hp V6, at the prestigious boot Düsseldorf Boat Show. Alongside this new model, Yamaha has also introduced enhancements to its Helm Master® EX boat control system, marking an evolution from a leading outboard engine provider to a comprehensive boating systems provider.

Innovative Design and Enhanced Performance

The newly designed 350hp V6 engine, joining Yamaha’s Outboard family, caters to the increasing demand for a diverse range of horsepower options combined with Yamaha’s hallmark performance and reliability. The engine features a 20% increase in fuel efficiency compared to its predecessor and offers enhanced user features. It’s available in Pearlescent White and Traditional Gray, making it an ideal choice for various boating applications due to its powerful yet lightweight design​​.

Technical Advancements for Optimal Boating Experience

Yamaha’s F350 model bridges the gap between V6 and V8 engines, providing higher power and increased torque at lower speeds for a responsive and exhilarating boating experience. The 350hp 4.3L engine boasts larger intake and exhaust valves for improved air movement, translating to more power and torque. This is coupled with Yamaha’s built-in Digital Electric Steering (DES) and Thrust Enhancing Reverse Exhaust (TERE), setting a new standard for an engaging boating experience​​.

Precision Engineering for Superior Performance

The 350hp V6 engine benefits from meticulous technical design, featuring an 11:1 compression ratio for efficient air displacement. Tailored intake manifolds with larger surge tanks ensure optimal air flow into each cylinder. The use of iridium spark plugs and Yamaha’s new fuel injection control technology further enhances the engine’s power output​​.

Integration with Helm Master EX for Enhanced Control

The F350 model integrates seamlessly with Yamaha’s Helm Master EX® control rigging system, designed to simplify boat operations and maximise enjoyment on the water. The system now includes a joystick-integrated variable speed bow thruster system, catering to larger boats requiring additional control. The 704 Remote Control Box, with a new neutral locking feature, allows for easy, one-handed throttle control and convenient trim setting adjustments​​.


Yamaha’s introduction of the F350 outboard model at boot Düsseldorf showcases its commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction in the maritime industry. This latest engine model and the enhancements to the Helm Master EX system represent Yamaha’s dedication to providing advanced, reliable solutions for boating enthusiasts and professionals alike.
