Mid-Power Portable

Yamaha’s mid-powered Portables, the F9.9 and F8, provide nimble, lightweight, efficient power you can take with you. These SOHC 212cc two-cylinder wonders are both under 90 pounds. They feature carrying handles, resting pads and on-side storage capability; so they easily ride along to the cabin or your hunting spot. With forward-mounted controls and optional power tilt, they make operation easy—perfect for spending a full day fishing the lake or skimming the marsh with your decoys. They also serve as excellent kickers, with the 9.9 offering several options including new pearlescent white styling or a high-thrust model with an optional V MAX SHO®-style sport cowl. Add a little more power to your day with Yamaha’s portable F9.9 and F8.
A two-cylinder, single-overhead-camshaft platform and streamlined intake manifold provides an efficient, light design.
An acceleration pump on the F9.9 and F8 gives these engines the fuel they need--when they need it--like during rapid throttle advance. This ensures responsive acceleration.
An intake silencer and manifold on the F9.9 and F8 result in more direct airflow, for minimum noise and maximum power.

PORTABILITY, PLUS DISPLACEMENT

Yamaha’s 8-hp Portable has stepped up its displacement to 212cc, joining its 9.9-hp big bro. Still, both feature light weights under 90 pounds, for one of the most impressive power-to-weight ratios in the horsepower class.
