The FT50 – Harness a real High-Thrust workhorse
When you want raw power and precise handling, our FT models are the perfect answer. Ideal for sailing, fishing and utility boats, these high-thrust, high-torque engines set high standards of performance, with minimal noise and vibration – and maximum fuel economy.
All FT models use Yamaha’s patented Dual-Thrust propeller to provide full thrust in Forward and Reverse – making light work of manoeuvring a heavy boat.
TCI Micro-computer Ignition offers easy starting and reliability whatever the conditions, and high-output alternators provide extra starting power, even after long periods at low RPM. FT Series engines are like powerful workhorses – designed never to let you down.

Special gear ratios for higher thrust
The FT engines are purpose-designed to deliver greater thrust and torque than a conventional engine and their special gear ratios help prevent cavitation and prop slippage. They work in combination with other unique features to provide the ideal power source for boats where load-hauling capability is more important than high speed.
Dual-thrust props for maximum power in Forward & Reverse
The special propellers fitted to the FT Models are not only of a larger than normal diameter, but have low pitch blades, designed to maximise thrust in both Forward and – by re-directing the exhaust flow – in Reverse too. This gives greater manoeuvrability, which is especially helpful when handling a heavier boat.
Yamaha Customer Outboard Protection (Y-COP) option
Yamaha’s unique Y-COP immobiliser system is a simple, easy to use and highly effective option – the neat and simple remote control locks and unlocks the engine at the push of a button. This prevents your outboard engine being taken for an unauthorised joyride, offering you peace of mind when leaving your boat unattended.
Yamaha Digital Network system options
The FT50 is compatible with Yamaha Digital Network Gauges. Giving accurate information on performance and efficiency, these include a Multifunction Tachometer with RPM, Hours Run, Trim Angle, Oil Pressure, Warning lamps and Variable RPM control – and a Speed/Fuel Management Gauge with Speed, Tank Capacity and Fuel Economy.
Wide Range Power Trim & Tilt
Discover the versatility and power of a Yamaha engine. Quick response, via push-button control, makes trim and tilt adjustments swift, smooth and easy. The confidence-giving handling control provided by the wide trim range includes negative trim settings to improve acceleration and help bring the boat onto the plane quickly.
Never get left short. A standard feature on our FT series of outboard engines, a High-output alternator ensures that power is always available to start the engine – even after prolonged periods of idling or when you’ve been running at low revs and using multiple accessories.
