About this Site

In the late 70's through the mid 80's, the Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd.  marketed their sailboats in North America.  These fine boats have become cherished by their owners, and have outlived the Yamaha dealer network in North America.

The goal of this site is to provide owners of the boats with as much information regarding Yamaha sailboats as I can collect.

Note that Yamaha still markets sailboats, and the current site, which is in Japanese, shows four models.  I understand that they are presently constructed by the New Japan Yacht Co.  This company, however, doesn't have any connection to the boats of the era of interest, and for parts, you are advised to visit the Parts page.

If you have any information to add to the bank of knowledge, please contact me at info@yamahasailboats.org to contribute.  Information including manuals as well as brochures are welcome.  There are other models besides the ones listed on the home page--please feel free to add information on those as well.
