Yamaha 350 HP 4stroke

Last weekend my dealer told me Yamaha is going to introduce a 350HP four-stroke before this summer.

Is there someone who can confirm this?

The men a the yamaha stand at London said it will be out this summer
But its big and about half as heavy again as the 250, he said its for the American market, he also said that it should have the cableless controls like
the Etec.

Yup it's true - a 5L V8 with duo prop apparently. Bet it will be seriously heavy as it's a 4 stroke as well.

Makes you wonder where's the progress - you could buy big V8 outboards back in the 70s!!!

First V8 outboard. 1963, though perhaps not a production model.

I assume this is another one of your disposable comments.

Oh right, so technology hasn't moved on since the 70's.
