Yamaha launches click & collect

Yamaha's portable outboard on the back of a boat

Yamaha Marine UK says it is making it easier for customers to purchase its portable and electric drive outboards with a new click & collect service. This means the outboards can be ordered from Yamaha’s website, but collected at the customer’s preferred dealer.

“We want to make buying an outboard as convenient and flexible as possible, as well as offering people more choice as to how they buy,” says Jonny Twelvetrees, manager of marine sales.

“Our portable and electric drive engines are ideal for online purchase. They’re lightweight, compact and it’s easy for someone to work out which engine is appropriate for their boat or tender.

“We have refreshed our stocks centrally of all our portable and electric drive models to support the launch of our exciting new click & collect service,” says Twelvetrees. “Our approved outboard engine Yamaha dealers also have stock should a customer prefer to visit and buy directly – it’s all about offering as much choice as we can, ensuring our customers have the best experience possible.”

Yamaha makes portable outboards from 2.5 to 6hp. The company says that the compact size, large carry handles and built-in fuel tanks, coupled with low fuel consumption, simple controls and easy manoeuvrability make these outboards ideal for small boats, tenders or as an auxiliary engine for a sailing boat. With regard to its electric offering, Yamaha says its Digital Maximiser helps the motor run up to five times longer on a single charge.

Yamaha Marine UK is running a competition to win a YAM240T inflatable boat, coupled with a Yamaha 2.5hp portable outboard at the Southampton International Boat Show, which takes place 16-25 September.
