Yamaha F25 portability

Hello everyone.
I never had a boat and have a stupid question! Can I put a F25 Yamaha in the back of a Toyota Corolla or no way? What about Suzuki 20 hp if F25 is too big?

Thank you!

I had to buy an Audi Q7 because the Q5 boot couldn't take my Suzuki 20HP.

It all depends on if you want to get anything else in there. Are you asking with a view to a one off transport, or regular transport along with boat & other gubbins?

Hi and welcome to the forum.

If it’s crucial this fits you need to get the OB measurements from the makers website then measure your car. I assume you mean the latest Yamaha efi 4-stroke? These have bulky powerhead hoods and the weight is near on 60kg which is a lot to handle..

I had the Suzuki 20hp efi and compared with a 15hp 2-stroke it made the car pack of OB plus deflated SIB and all the kit much harder... that was in a roomy BMW 5-Series estate.

What is your boat and how will you carry that?

Worth remembering F25 is a wet sump 4-stroke, so leg needs to be lower than engine block and it gets placed down on the tiller arm side when transporting, especially at 57kg. Use to carry and build a Yamaha 25D 2-stroke years ago on a Zodiac and that was a brut to man-handle over anything but a short distance to the slipway, and that weighed in at 48kg. A little sack trolley, if you have space would be good call.

Regular transport with an inflatable boat that can take that motor and some gears too!

So if there was a way to put it in corolla, probably no more room for an inflatable boat and some gears lol.

Thank you,

If you can store a trailer just get a boat on a trailer. Wife's former car was a Corolla and it towed the RIB quite nicely and no setting up faff meant more time on the water and also that we used it more often.

I've got a 25 Suzuki 61 kg I lifted it onto the transom and that's were its stayed on the boat on a trailer it's not just weight their an awkward lift now a sack barrow is a game changer if you set it up correctly there's no lifting

Decided to get something small to see if I like it or not!

Hello everyone I am back!!
I just visited a west marine store and saw a 20 hp outboard for the first time in my life. Holy cow!! 95 lbs with that shape is not for me! I think I need to wear a glass or they look smaller in youtube! I take my word back and am ready to downsize it to a 6 hp outboard but what about a Yamaha 9.9 hp? Can it be fit in the back of the corolla?

Please do me a favor and let me know what you think about these 2 options!

1) Getting a 6 hp outboard + Zodiac Cadet 250 Compact RIB
Stowed Dimensions of boat : 5' 9" x 2' 11" x 1' (I am hoping I can put this inside the corolla!)

2)Getting a 9.9 hp outboard + Achilles LSR-310E (ALUMINUM ROLL-UP SERIES)
Stowed Dimensions of boat : 3' 9" x 2' 1" x 1' 3"

Apologize if my thoughts are too stupid this is exactly why I ask!
ALL opinions are appreciated, thank you in advance.

Option 2 seems best... as long as that roll up floor system is rigid in use... I have no experience of that type and I wonder with no side stringers if it would be a bit flexy?

Re the 9.9 Yamaha in the Corolla again it's a case of getting the dimensions from Yamaha and measuring the car.... but it will be loads easier than a bulky 25hp.
