The most advanced motor in its class.

Lifting the mid-range horsepower segment to a whole new level, Yamaha’s all-new F130A employs the latest technology in a refined, efficient and light-weight package. Purpose built from the ground up to go the distance in the harsh marine environment, the F130A sits in between the best-selling F115 and F150 outboard engines and is ideally suited to boats in the popular 5 – 6m size range.

Weighing in at a class-leading 172kg, the F130A trims the fat by utilising a light and compact power trim & tilt unit and the latest light-weight materials throughout the engine and the cowl design.

The superior refinement of the silky-smooth, twin-camshaft, 4-cylinder design and unmatched power-to-weight ratio, translates to unrivalled fuel economy, reliability and performance.

The F130A is a technological symphony of exclusive Yamaha engineering – playing host to the latest combination of innovative, efficient and performance oriented technology. Utilising a 16-valve, 1832cc, in-line 4-cylinder engine from the F115B, the F130A delivers something completely new through the addition of cutting-edge technology usually only found in Yamaha’s high-horsepower line-up. This includes the use of a single electronic throttle valve that interprets the input from the mechanical control at the helm and deliverers the optimum throttle movement for exact response and precision control. This system works in tune with a completely new fuel injection and ignition system. The F130A has been designed with a 5mm offset crankshaft for efficient combustion and durability as well as an enhanced lower gear unit to reliably transfer the extra torque to the water.

Compact and light-weight in design, the F130A’s performance and efficiency makes it the ideal power option.


1.8 Litre, EFI, DOHC, In-line 4-Cylinder, 16 valve engine

Yamaha is raising the bar with the introduction of the new F130A four-stroke outboard. Featuring a superior refinement of the silky-smooth, 1,832cc twin-camshaft in-line 4 cylinder featured in the F115B. The new F130 plays host to all the latest combination of innovative, efficient and performance oriented technology.
The engine compression ratio has been increased, and so has the full throttle operating range: 5,300-6,300rpm. The inclusion of an engine knock sensor, which is an uncommon feature in this class of outboard, allows the engine to operate safely and constantly at peak output. Class leading efficiency and performance is achieved throughout the complete rev range via the latest in Yamaha’s efficient multi-point EFI, ECM control and large single Electronic Throttle Valve body.

5mm Offset Crankshaft

Previously only seen in larger capacity engines, the all-new F130A sees the introduction of a 5mm offset crankshaft which encourages efficient combustion transfer.

81mm Cylinder Bore

The use of a 81mm cylinder bore promotes superior engine torque and more efficient operation. Large valves are used to increase both intake and exhaust transfer efficiency.

Multi-Point Electronic Fuel Injection

The ECM controlled multi-point electronic fuel injection system precisely measures the fuel and injects it into the combustion chamber at the optimum timing to increase performance and assure quick engine starting in various environmental conditions.
The four-stroke, four-valve per cylinder F130A is able to maximize combustion efficiency in a way that no two-stroke can, delivering the utmost in quiet power and performance.

Electronic Throttle Valve (ETV)

The introduction of an Electronic Throttle Valve aids in minimising intake resistance, whilst providing an increase in engine response, acceleration and torque. The ETV also allows for precise throttle movements according to engine temperature and atmospheric pressure, to provide the optimum level of power and economy.

Best in-class charging power

The F130A alternator delivers more power than before: A full 35 amps at wide open throttle, and at only 1,000rpm allows the F130A alternator to produce a full 28 amps, which ensures that plenty of power is available for engine starts – even after long periods at low RPM or when using multiple accessories.

Command Link (optional)

All Yamaha EFI outboard engines can be linked, via Yamaha’s own digital network system, to a wide range of instruments – to help you get the best from your engine. A multi-function tachometer displays RPM, engine hours, trim angle, oil pressure and warning lamps. The combined Speed and Fuel Management gauge shows speed, fuel tank level, and economy data, whilst the inclusion of the YCOP security will give peace of mind protection.

Variable Trolling Speed

Controlled by command link gauges, the operator can adjust the engine’s trolling speed from 600 to 1000 rpm in 50 rpm increments. This helps provide precise and consistent trolling speeds in an array of conditions.
The Variable Trolling feature allows anglers to adjust the boat trolling speed in small speed increments. The ability to fine-tune lure presentations to even the fussiest species gives fishermen unprecedented advantages.

Shift Dampener System Propeller (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 K Series aluminum and polished Stainless Steel series of propellers, it means smooth and quiet operation when both shifting and while in gear. These propellers have been engineered for FT60-F130 Outboards and require no special hardware for operation.

Enhanced Lower gear unit (transmission)

In order to harness the extra torque of the F130A, additional heat treatment and hardening has been incorporated into the manufacturing process to enhance the transmission.
