Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Quiet, Sips Gas, Low Emissions,Yamaha quality
Cons:Heavy compared to a 2-stroke of equal hp
I purchased my 1999 F100 new in July of 1999 with my 16ft Boston Whaler Dauntless . My previous boats have had OMC two-stroke outboards... What a difference! I absolutely love it! The best features of this engine is, the quietness and smoothness, quick starts, the fresh water flush system, low emissions, and it sips the gasoline. It also has a 3 year warranty like most other four stroke manufactures.

The F100 is so quite, I can easily have a conversation at wide open throttle with my passenger(s). One time I gave a tow to a fellow boater who was having trouble with his non-Yamaha outboard...as he hooked up the tow line up he suggested that I start my engine, I told him it was already running. He could not believe how quite it was, I told him about the small amount gas consumption it gets, he was so convinced that he told me he was going to replace his non-Yamaha two-stroke with an F100.
I now have about 70 hours on my F100 and it has not given me any trouble. Maintenance is great, I had the dealer service it at the end of the 10 hour break in period just to make sure everything was tight. Then I changed the engine and gear oil myself. The fresh water system is great, just hook up a garden hose, no need to run it and disturb the neighbors.
This engine will pay for itself in the amount of money I save in oil and gas. My last tank of gas I averaged just under 2 gallons per/hour!
The only con with the Yamaha F100 is the extra weight compared to a two-stroke of equal horse power, but the Yamaha F100 is a feather compared to the 90hp Honda four-stroke.
I'm confident the Yamaha F100 will give me many years of reliable service!
I owned a Yamaha Waverunner which did not give me any problems the 6 years I had it! I have family that have had Yamaha outboards for 10 plus years and they highly recommended it to me, I'm so glad I got the Yamaha F100.
