Power and Maneuverability
Yamaha F300 Offshore

The Yamaha F300 Offshore model boasts a “97% for reliability” offshore.  Its construction is lightweight without sacrificing on material quality. It is also available in electric-steering models, eliminating the need for hydraulic lines. With features such as Thrust Enhancing Reverse Exhaust for more efficient performance when operating in reverse, as well as Yamaha Shift-Dampening System to eliminate clunky gear switches, the designers and engineers seem to have thought of it all.

These are popular in the Gulf of Mexico for their performance and reliability. Some serious blue water fishing gets done in boats powered by F300s.
