For maximum fun afloat, there’s nothing like a YAM SPORT. Ideal for camping trips, water sports, family holidays, lake cruises or just exploring the coastline.

Because these tough, sporty inflatables are also smart and stylish, they’re a great choice as the tender to a larger boat, whether sailing yacht or power cruiser. From the smallest 240S up to the highly capable 380S, these boats handle easily and are designed for more serious work too.

So if you’re looking for a boat that’s easy to manoeuvre and will tackle family adventures with ease – towing donuts and other toys – yet be equally at home as a stable fishing, diving or work boat, then a YAM Sport is made for you.

Jump into a YAM and join the thousands of happy owners cruising round the ports, marinas and inland waters of Europe. Renowned for their simple, stylish designs, ease of use and refreshing value for money, Yam inflatables help people get out on the water more easily – and have more fun.

There are ten models, each sharing the Yamaha reputation for reliability. Their V-shaped hulls and inflatable keels ensure great rigidity, agility and performance, while the big tube diameters and wide bow designs offer a comfortable, secure ride.

Add a Yamaha outboard, with its all-weather reliability and world class performance – for an unbeatable package.

Yamaha outboards are renowned for their turnkey reliability and amazing performance and YAM inflatables are designed to be the perfect match, from the unique underwater profile to the optimised angle and height of the transom. With a huge range of Yamaha outboards to choose from, it’s easy to find the perfect combination of engine and inflatable.

Built to last

For maximum strength and good looks, all YAM inflatables are constructed using the latest generation HEYTEX® PVC material, with all seams and joints glue-bonded for optimum watertightness and safety. The result is a smart, clean exterior surface that is highly resistant to abrasion, salt water and sunlight.

Built to take the pressure

A cleverly designed air baffle system is incorporated into the hull tubes of all YAM inflatables. This not only helps to keep the individual chambers completely sealed for safety, it also helps maintain and equalise air pressure throughout the tube. Amongst other things, this also allows your boat to absorb minor impacts without major problems.

In addition to safety features like strong, secure grab-handles, seat patches, D-rings, lifting eyes and other fittings, comfort is also a top priority. Our ingenious high-quality air valve is a good example – exceptionally reliable and airtight, it’s easy to operate and is flush with the surface of the tube, preventing snagging or discomfort.

Easy to transport

Every YAM comes with everything needed for instant boating enjoyment. The strong carrying bag is convenient for stowing your YAM in a car boot or on a roof rack – and the floors, seats and fittings are all very simple to install. A powerful air pump is also supplied, so your YAM will be ready to go in a matter of minutes.

V-shaped hull configuration

All YAM Sport models use a stable V-hull configuration, providing not only great rigidity and superb directional control at speed, but also precise handling at slow speed. Tough, scratch-resistant rigid floors are a standard fitting – as well as a range of other practical features, such as neat oar-stowage facilities and strong lifting eyes.
