Yamaha’s Outboard Engine Big Block Beast – The F350C.

Published June 1st, 2016 by Bernardo

Yamaha’s purpose-built 5.3-liter 350-horsepower V8 outboard surges to the front of the fleet when it comes to thrust and trust for moving big, offshore beasts. And Nautical Ventures is your Yamaha F350 headquarters when it comes to all your engine needs. Repower… Warranty… and Service. Here what we like about this new Yamaha V8 model: 


This was the world’s first 5.3-liter four stroke outboard, providing unparalleled displacement and up to 45% more thrust than 250hp-class outboards. When it launched in 2007, its industry-rocking 60° DOHC, and 32-valve, 5.3-liter design redefined offshore power. It’s taken almost five years for the competition to even remotely catch up.


The F350’s Variable Camshaft Timing advances and retards the angle of the intake camshaft to dramatically increase power and throttle response in the low- and mid-rpm ranges. This gives the engine substantially greater torque between 2000 ~ 3500 RPM—and if you have a large offshore boat, torque is what matters. It’s the power to plane and move a large offshore craft.


To handle the incredible power of the F350C, its Ultra-Tough Gearcase features hardened gears and high-strength, oversized bearings and bearing surfaces. It also features strong, forged motor mounts and an oversized bracket specifically designed to harness its massive power and thrust while minimizing vibration and noise.


Harness the power of the V8 F350C with the Helm Master fully integrated boat control system. It supports twin-, triple- and quad-outboard configurations, and makes docking and maneuvering a large offshore boat—even those exceeding 40 feet—very intuitive.


Last but not least, Yamaha’s Ultimate Corrosion Protection System places sacrificial anodes throughout the powerhead, mid-section and lower unit, diverting corrosion away from vital engine components.


Nautical Ventures is your official Yamaha headquarters for South Florida. We’ve been helping boaters in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach stay on the water with trouble-free enjoyment for over 30 years.
