Just got a quote on a new 2016 Yamaha 90 with 3yr warranty (buy back from a dealer that closed). The only problem is it is a EXTRA long shaft.
Arenít the 22 anglers just a long shaft?
The dealer said he could put a plate on it ( Iím think the term is a jack plate) to bring it up if I wanted to go with that option. The price is $ 7495.00 !
If I go with the long shaft 2019 year itís $8845.00
The dealer would install the Extra long shaft with ďplateĒ - control box - cables and prop ready to go for $8,500.00 and if I wanted the extra warranty + 2 yrs it would add another $653.00
I believe the jack plate would set the motor back a few inches and gain a few pounds but I wouldnít think that to be a worry and itís adjustable up/down (manual).
The other thing thatís on my mind is itís a 2016 motor but I figure it has a warranty from the factory so ??...
Does anyone know of issues with a 2016 Yamaha?
Any other comments or thoughts are appreciated. _________________ What ever you are, be a good one 🇺🇸

I would suggest you measure carefully the lengths involved. I know that on a number of boats (mine included) the engines have been mounted too low. Raising my standard length engines to the highest point possible on the transom significantly improved boat performance - speed and mileage. With Permatrims, for instance, you want just the thinnest film of water running over the top of the foil when you're on plane. Make sure the jack will put the engine where you need it. _________________ Bill, Formerly on NORO LIM

Yamaha had a promotion until a couple of weeks ago (Aug 30) to get the extra 2 yrs warranty at no extra charge, and according to the fine print it applied to outboards manufactured after 2012 so it should have been good on that 2016 too. These promos seemingly come up all the time.
The 2016 is previous generation, the 2019 is current generation which came out in 2017. Looking at weights the difference would be for the 2019: 13lb lighter (new generation) + 10lb lighter (20" vs 25") + wt of jack plate (10+ lbs, at least?) = 33+ lbs lighter, which is also amplified by being set back with the jackplate. The 2017 and newer supposedly have other improvements (according to their sales literature), and I'd also consider resale questions/concerns of fitting the 25" on a 22', and better resale with the new generation 2019 vs 2016, depending on when you might sell in the future.
Surely the 2016 will be a good motor, but might the benefits of the properly fitting 20", current generation 2019 be worth the extra cost? I guess that's the question only you can decide... easy for me to say spring for the 2019 when it's not my money, LOL!

Which ever way you go, be sure that the anti ventilation plate is right at the surface of the water with the boat on a plane. It will make a considerable difference in both economy and speed. I probably would go with the long shaft 2019 or 2020 motor. Either way, you will be getting an excellent outboard. _________________ Bob Austin
