Lomac partners with Yamaha Motor

Milan-based shipyard Lomac Nautica is partnering with Yamaha Motor to provide a new integrated rigging and outboard solution for its inflatable boats.

Lomac says the technical partnership means that the entire Yamaha pre-rigging system, (i.e. all the onboard equipment, including the controls, dashboard and instrumentation) is preinstalled directly in the yard, according to the guidelines established by the Japanese manufacturer.

To ensure that installation is carried out in compliance with Yamaha’s quality standards, the Lomac team is being trained on-site and will be constantly updated by the Yamaha Motor Europe technical team.

Paolo Lo Manto, Lomac’s commercial director, says: “Producing a boat in close collaboration with an engine manufacturer means combining experience and technical skills to develop a comprehensive and reliable product, from aesthetics to performance, without losing sight of safety.”

Lomac says its boats powered by Yamaha engines are the result of extensive testing carried out by the two technical teams both on land and in the water. Hydrodynamic trim studies are used to adjust the height of the outboard motor fitted to the boat, as well as to choose the right propeller for each model’s hull lines, both important details to ensure optimal performance.

Fuel consumption and motor speed mapping are optimised based on specific tests certifying that the combination of hull and motor achieves its full potential.

The yard’s inflatable boats fitted with Yamaha engines will also be equipped with autopilot navigation (integrated in Yamaha Helm Master EX systems), CL5 multifunction displays, and the optional Steer by Wire autopilot, for a light and responsive ride even with triple-engine setups.
