McGlashan’s new Evolution 600 Extreme to be powered by Yamaha F250D.

Al will opt for a Yamaha 250D outboard on his new Evolution 600.

Yamaha says it is excited to welcome Al McGlashan to the ranks of Yamaha. Famous for catching some of the biggest fish in the country, Al is a respected fishing journalist with an international reputation.

His images both above and below the surface are world famous and have been published in hundreds of magazines and papers – including his regular fishing column in TrailerBoat magazine. Al has authored several books and his TV show, Big Fish Small Boats, is filming a third season which is due to air nationally.

McGlashan’s new boat is an Evolution 600 Extreme that will be set up for serious offshore fishing. It will pack a payload of new electronics and will be powered by a Yamaha F250D. The F250D, says Yamaha, is the biggest displacement engines in the 250 horsepower class, delivering huge torque and great performance. According to Yamaha, the F250D is also the lightest 250 horsepower four-stroke outboard on the market.

"These unique advantages are the reasons why serious boaters and fisherman like Al are turning to Yamaha’s class-leading range of four-stroke engines," said Grant Binskin, national marketing manager for Yamaha Marine Products in Australia. "Yamaha is very excited to be associated with Al McGlashan. We really respect the passion and enthusiasm he brings to everything he does. Yamaha looks forward to powering Al’s adventures in 2014 and beyond".
