Yamaha has announced the new range of aluminium hull inflatable boats, 350, 310 and 270 TAf, ideal for family days out, adventures with friends or even simple tender duties.
The hulls of these innovative boats are crafted from aluminium, which offers a range of benefits to a prospective owner. The incredible lightweight, requires less horsepower to drive them through the water. This results in a more efficient engine and boat combination, reducing cost of ownership.
Precision Yamaha engineering has produced noticeably robust hulls, providing a reassuring strength, ideal for regular beaching. The aluminium hulls also offer an advantageous rigidity, allowing the operator to confidently handle their boat in choppier waters and enjoy supreme manoeuvrability.
All new YAMS are available with a range of Yamaha Outboards and a selection of seating configurations. For a more relaxed experience, an optional bench seat and console is available on the TAf models. While the bench seat offers comfortable seating and ample storage beneath, the console gives added protection and the option for a remote throttle and additional navigation electronics as required. For additional seating and storage a cushioned seat is also available adjacent to the console, creating a secure experience for your crew.
These tough, dependable models make an ideal family boat for weekend adventures but serve equally well as larger tenders. Seating can be configured to suit your purpose and preference with a thwart seat option or a bench with storage for all those exploration essentials. Convenient and spacious bow storage allow plenty of room for easy stowage of an anchor and all your family’s gear, whilst the flat floor facilitates easy boarding and simple loading of luggage. Your customisation of your boat doesn’t stop at seating, with engine options including an incredibly lightweight Yamaha 25hp, offering a superb power-to-weight ratio to benefit both performance and ease of use on, and off the water.
The 350TAf is 350cm length overall and has a beam of 160cm. The bareboat weight is an extremely manageable 72kg with a spacious capacity for 4 adults plus 1 child.
The 310TAf is your perfect partner for action and adventure, playing host to your latest fishing expedition. Choose bench seating with a console, providing an ideal place to stash your rod on the port side. The incorporated bow locker is a great location to store the rest of your equipment. Engine options include the latest Yamaha 20hp featuring battery-less EFI.
The 310TAf is 307cm in length overall and has a 160cm beam. The bareboat weight is a very light 60kg, especially when you consider that the capacity stretches to 4 adults and 1 child.
