Kingfisher Accord with Yamaha OutboardBy Andy Adams

The Canadian designed and built KingFisher Accord 1925 with the new Yamaha F200, 200 hp four-stroke outboard is bound to be a fisherman’s dream rig. This is what they call a multi-species boat because it has a wide range of fishing features suitable for inland bass and pickerel fishing or even going for salmon in bluewater. It is a solid and comfortable boat that runs like a rocket with the Yamaha 200.

While you may not be surprised at the acceleration and 40+ top speed this rig is capable of, you would be amazed at how quietly it idles. You can even troll with the F200 and it has a Variable trolling VTS Switch on this 2.8 litre inline 4-cylinder engine.

The F200 features multi-point EFI, a dual overhead cam design and VCT variable valve timing for great performance. Our test boat was equipped with a 9.9 Yamaha kicker–not necessary but a great addition in convenience and economy that keeps the hours down on the big motor.

The is a welded aluminum boat with a transferable lifetime warranty and it’s designed and built using the company’s Pre-Flex technology. It takes the flat aluminum panels and during construction, flexes them a little for significantly added rigidity.
