Yamaha Motor Europe have confirmed a five-year collaboration with Windy Boats. Under the new agreement, the SR44 will be available with Yamaha Motor’s XTO 425hp V8 outboard engine, while Windy’s SR28 CC will also be available with a selection of Yamaha Motor’s premium and high-power outboards, including the latest 300hp V6.

Fabrice Lacoume, Marine Director at Yamaha Motor Europe, commented: ‘This announcement marks the start of Yamaha Motor Europe providing Windy Boats with the very finest technology in marine propulsion systems, such as Helm Master EX control and the Premium range of outboard engines.’

Yamaha say more customers are realising the benefits of outboard power in the sports cruiser market, commenting: ‘These benefits include reduced maintenance costs and a smoother, quieter performance, all of which has resulted in growing demand in this segment. The partnership between Yamaha Motor Europe and Windy Boats is another important step along the road.’
