The covers are coming off of South Africa's latest boats and marine engines at the Johannesburg Boat & Outdoor Lifestyle Show. South Africa's largest indoor boat and outdoor show takes place from 14 - 16 August 2015 at the Johannesburg Expo Centre, Nasrec.


Yamaha are pleased to announce the public debut of the F130A engine that fills the only remaining gap in Yamaha's four-stroke engine range. This new-Generation engine features advanced technology inherited from Yamaha's high-horsepower line-up. The DOHC, four-cylinder design features large intake and exhaust valves for efficient transfer of fuel and exhaust producing more power and better midrange torque.


The compact new F130A offers a new level of engine performance with a favourable power to weight ratio. This lightweight design makes the engine perfect for conditions where minimising weight on the transom is important. In addition the F130A has a maximum operating rpm range of 5300 - 6300rpm, delivering additional top end torque while maintaining responsive power right through the rpm range.


Visitors will be able to view a wide range of Yamaha's Waverunner® personal watercraft fitted with the innovative RiDE (Reverse with Intuitive Deceleration Electronics) technology. An industry first, the handlebars with dual throttle controls are ultra-intuitive. Pull the right lever to go forward, pull the left lever to slow down and go in reverse. Let go of both levers and the watercraft is in neutral. There's no shifting or need to switch between gears.


Show highlights include:
? Fishing clinics on the Go Fish Stand
? Marine safety clinics presented by SAMSA (South African Maritime Safety Authority)
? Kia Ride and Drive
? Wakeboard, paddle boarding and Jetovater demonstrations on the Lake
? Hundreds of new boats and engines
? Canoes and kayaks
? Fishing equipment and accessories
? Diving Exhibits


Motorcycling enthusiasts are not forgotten with the Red Bull X Fighters making a special appearance with two Freestyle Motocross shows daily featuring daredevil motorcycle stunts. Another highlight is the Enduroworld OLX Pro Super Enduro event pitting South Africa's leading dirt motorcyclists against each other over a gruelling obstacle course.
