The next generation of Yamaha's F115 is the lightest four-stroke 115-horsepower outboard available. That and a host of great features and benefits means the new EFI F115 is poised to carry on in the Yamaha line as one of the company's best-selling models.
Shift Dampener System (SDS™): Yamaha's patent-pending Shift Dampener System (SDS™) greatly reduces the noise commonly associated with shifting gears. Using a new design and components specific to Yamaha "K" size propellers, much of the force of shifting is absorbed. Standard on Yamaha's new aluminum Talon™ series of propellers, it means smooth and quiet operation when both shifting and while in gear. Talon propellers require no special hardware for proper operation.
Variable Trolling RPM Switch (VTS®): Controlled by Multi-Function Tiller Handle or by the Command Link® tachometer, the operator can adjust the engine's trolling speed from 600 to 1,000 rpm in 50-rpm increments, which helps to provide precise and consistent trolling speeds in an array of conditions.
Versatility for Repower: The F115 with mechanical control is great for repower with boats that have existing cable controls. At just 377 pounds, it's light, and the F115 has 26-inch mounting centres, ideal for smaller twin-engine craft. In addition, it has a standard mounting bolt pattern consistent with other Yamaha outboard models, as well as those from other manufacturers.
