Note: When a Cape Fisherman 26 is ordered with twin engines, one of the engines will be an LF model (counter rotation).

Mechanical and Digital Engines

Many of the boats sold by Jones Brothers have both mechanical and digital engine purchase options. The Yamaha mechanical outboards use an older technology utilizing physical throttle control cables, mechanical or hydraulic steering, and are somewhat less expensive than the digital models. There are two varieties of digital motors. The “Digital – DEC/HYD” motors listed in the table use a Command Link Plus “fly-by-wire” throttle control, but have hydraulic steering. The “Digital – DEC/DSA” motors use both digital throttle and steering control, and the engines have integrated electronic steering actuators. 

Yamaha Engine Model Codes

Visitors examining boats on the Jones Brothers website will find that each boat has different engine options – some with substantial price differences even with engines with the same HP rating. A person would correctly assume that the differences in price are based on features. Unfortunately, the Yamaha website does not contain any information about the specific engine model codes used to price and sell our products. This section attempts to answer questions about the different Yamaha models available on Jones Brothers boats.
