Powered By a Yamaha F70
The recommended motor for the Freedom 17 FHT ranges from the Yamaha F40 all the way up to the F70. Enhanced reliability, exceptionally smooth and quiet operation, outstanding fuel efficiency, maximum performance, and convenience. All combine to make this range of outboard motors an incredibly powerful and versatile value.
1. ANGLED POWER BARS
Counteract the twisting action of the engine’s weight and thrust, transferring this torque energy across the boats entire hull.
2. REINFORCED BOW SUPPORT
Provides rigidity, consistency and energy dispersion when hitting a wave.
3. EXTRA THICK HULL DESIGN
Polar Kraft boats are hand formed out of the thickest aluminum on the market — making our boats the toughest in the industry.
4. SIX STURDY I-BEAM LONGITUDINAL STRINGERS
Run the entire length of the boat and combine with traverse bulkheads to create torque boxes that provide each Polar Kraft boat with exceptional support of the running surface, which translates into a smoother ride.
5. TORQUE BOXES
Formed by the I-beam transverse bulkheads that are found throughout the lower hull section — provides superior strength and the smoothest ride on the water.
6. URETHANE CLOSED CELL FOAM
A dentist doesn’t fill half a cavity so why do some boat manufacturers? Polar Kraft goes to extreme lengths to fill our hull chambers with erethane closed cell foam which creates more buoyancy for safety and a quieter rig in shallow water to reduce spooking fish.
