Johannesburg Boat Show a must see for boating,

watersport and outdoor enthusiasts

 

The covers are coming off of South Africa’s latest boats and marine engines at the Johannesburg Boat & Outdoor Lifestyle Show. South Africa’s largest indoor boat and outdoor show takes place from 14 – 16 August 2015 at the Johannesburg Expo Centre, Nasrec.

Yamaha are pleased to announce the public debut of the F130A engine that fills the only remaining gap in Yamaha’s four-stroke engine range. This new-Generation engine features advanced technology inherited from Yamaha’s high-horsepower line-up. The DOHC, four-cylinder design features large intake and exhaust valves for efficient transfer of fuel and exhaust producing more power and better midrange torque.

The compact new F130A offers a new level of engine performance with a favourable power to weight ratio. This lightweight design makes the engine perfect for conditions where minimising weight on the transom is important. In addition the F130A has a maximum operating rpm range of 5300 – 6300rpm, delivering additional top end torque while maintaining responsive power right through the rpm range.

An industry first, the handlebars with dual throttle controls are ultra-intuitive. Pull the right lever to go forward, pull the left lever to slow down and go in reverse. Let go of both levers and the watercraft is in neutral. There’s no shifting or need to switch between gears.
