Yamaha outboards

Net sales in Yamaha Motor’s Marine Division were 268.3 billion yen (an increase of 17.4 billion yen or 6.9% compared with the same period the previous fiscal year), and operating income was 53.1 billion yen (an increase of 4.5 billion yen or 9.2%).

The company said marine sales and income increased thanks to the effects of higher outboard motor production starting to become apparent, as well as healthy sales of personal water craft and sports boats.
