Yamaha 250 HP Outboard Motor Review The current version of the F250 now includes Command Link Digital Electronic Controls, which were first introduced in 2007. The Yamaha F250 is a four-stroke with increased reliability and durability, as well as an upgraded corrosion protection kit, according to the company.

Out on the water The Yamaha Sportsman 232 Open’s six-cylinder (V6) 4.2lt four-stroke is a proven performer and an excellent complement for the Sportsman 232 Open.

Hole-shot was quick to get on the plane and punchy. At roughly 4000rpm, the motor settles quietly and smoothly into the mid-range, and when you open it up to WOT, all hell breaks loose, with a healthy 46kts achieved on flat water, and that’s flying.

The engine data is also integrated into the Simrad systems on the 232, which is convenient. Nevertheless, I like separate gauges, and on this boat, I would add the new Yamaha LCD flat screen display fitting for engine data.

These V6 four-stroke outboards range in power from 200hp in the 3.5lt to 225-300hp in the 4.2lt, with good low-end and top-end grunt. The variable camshaft timing improves throttle response dramatically, resulting in outstanding power across the rpm band.

On the technological side, the 4.2lt capacity was reached by a highly advanced thermally applied plasma fusion process on the cylinder walls, which is a feature frequently found on high-performance sports cars. There are no traditional steel cylinders, but the walls are 60% harder than steel, resulting in increased power, torque, and cooling qualities, as well as a considerable reduction in overall weight to (253kg – 25 inch) and (259kg – 30 inch) for the motors. The motor weight on the 232’s transom is barely noticeable.

The V6 is also compatible with the new Yamaha electronic rigging system, which includes a new high-contrast multi-engine LCD display, which, as previously stated, I would prefer on the 232 as well as integrating into the Simrad system. More convenience, flexibility, and information are provided by the new electronic controls, key switches, and start/stop panels than before.
