Do you value maximum performance and best manoeuvrability? Then an engine from our T series is right for you. With their particularly quiet, low-vibration and economical operation, these powerful thrust motors, which also deliver a particularly high torque, set high standards in terms of performance and optimum fuel efficiency. The ideal drive for sailing, fishing and work boats.
The FT50 – a real workhorse among the push motors.
All FT Series engines benefit from Yamaha’s patented dual-thrust propellers, which deliver full thrust forward and reverse, making maneuvering heavy boats a breeze.
The TCI ignition with microcomputer control ensures reliable and effortless starting in all conditions. A powerful alternator always provides sufficient starting current – even after long journeys at low speeds. The T Series engines are powerful workhorses that won’t let you down.

Special gear reductions for more thrust
The FT engines are purpose-built to provide greater thrust and torque than conventional engines. Their special gear ratio prevents cavitation and propeller slip. They work in combination with other unique
features to provide the ideal power source for boats where towing capability is more important than top speed.
Yamaha DNG digital instruments
The F50 is compatible with Yamaha’s DNG digital gauges, which enable maximum performance and efficiency by displaying various data: a multifunctional tachometer for displaying RPM, hour, tilt angle, oil pressure, warning lights and variable speed setting, as well as a speed and speed indicator Fuel management with
speed, fuel level and fuel consumption.
Variable trolling speed
At the push of a button on the DNG tachometer – or via the variable trolling speed switch on the optional tiller handle – the operator can adjust the maneuvering speed in 50 rpm increments between 620 and 900 rpm.
Trimming and tilting system with a wide adjustment range
Discover the versatility and power of a Yamaha engine. Fast response with button control allows for quick, smooth and easy trim and pitch over a wide trim range. The negative trim settings are particularly useful for improving acceleration and getting the boat on plane quickly.
No more starting reserves? Never. The powerful alternator that our FT outboard motors are equipped with as standard always provides sufficient starting current – even after prolonged operation at idle or when operating several accessories at the same time when cruising at low revs.
Dual thrust propellers for maximum performance in both forward and reverse
The special propellers installed in the FT models not only have a larger diameter, but also a low pitch to maximize thrust in forward and – by redirecting the exhaust flow – also in reverse. This provides better manoeuvrability, which is especially helpful when steering heavier boats.Standard scope of delivery:
