Yanmar parts in Florida

has anyone worked out how to buy Yankmar parts online for shipping to florida? All the online stores I found can deliver anywhere in the USA except Florida. My local dealers in SW florida are useless and I've wasted hours trying to stock up on filters before we head offshore. i thought this kind of service died out with the typewriter.

Never had a problem. They all go through Mastry in St. Pete. Go to their web page and find a dealer.

I have found it much more convenient to simply use NAPA Auto Parts. The NAPA Gold filters seem to be excellent quality, fairly priced and most importantly easily obtainable.

They have filter application/substitution charts for just about any filter look-up. Same with belts.

Re: Yanmar parts in Florida

Mastry don't have an online store and are 150 miles away My local dealers aren't online either. I'm traveling on business at the moment and just need to order online - lots of OEM dealers online - all excluded from shipping to Florida.

Would prefer to use OEM parts but looks like Napa might win - thanks.
BTW ordered 4 genuine Johnson impellers online - arrived 2 days later and the cost was almost exactly half the Yanmar cost - Good old ebay! it's a johnson pump and the 'genuine' Yanmar part is stamped Johnson just the same as the 4 I bought.

If only we could work out who makes Yanmar's filters and belts we could bypass the Yanmar and Mastry markup and all save a fortune.

I order from Bay Shore Marine in Annapolis, MD. They have an online store and the parts counter staff have always been very helpful.

The Johnson impellers are fine, but the Yanmar brand impellers are threaded to take their compact impeller puller. On my engine at least there is not enough room between the starter and pump to fit a standard puller. The Yanmar puller works perfectly in this space. I have also found the impellers on line for approximately the same price as Johnson impellers. The puller was $19.95 when I bought it about 8 years ago.

I ran into this problem once in the keys. Mastry would not sell directly to me, but I found a local dealer (Mastry gave me their name) that would take my credit card and have them drop shipped to the boatyard. I used the online sources to get the part numbers I needed then called the local dealer. They arrived the next day via UPS. It was a bit of a pain, but it worked. I found out later that although I paid for next day delivery, I didn't have to. UPS apparently has a policy of next day delivery between two addresses in the state of Florida for its standard rate.

IMO the Yanmar parts distribution system in the US absolutely sucks. It should be illegal, also IMO. I once resorted to buying some critical parts from the UK, and having them Fedexed to the states because the Yanmar distributors in my region did not have the parts and had to order them from Japan while I was sitting on the hard at $44/day. The parts from the UK were within a couple of dollars of the US price after the currency exchange. I had the parts in two days for $66 shipping.

Yes, I/we feel your pain.

In most cases, however, good owners associations will have already done your homework and research for you and come up with tables of equivalent and equal parts for filters and pumps.

You might consider trying a Google search for the model of your engine and equivalents. Search also for your engine and boat and see what comes up. Often you'll be surprised at how helpful skippers can be in posting this information.

Good luck.

Re: Yanmar parts in Florida

Have you tried Florida Marine Diesel at fort pierce? Small place, I thought the owner was a pretty "regular" guy and prices weren't too bad.

Re: Yanmar parts in Florida

I've bought Yanmar filters from these guys in Largo online.

And Lambs in Jacksonville will happily ship to you if you call them on the phone.

Re: Yanmar parts in Florida

Yanmar has a reputation for being very, very, strict about their dealerships doing business only in their franchised locations. It could well be that the dealer "group" in Florida has made a painfully expensive point of enforcing this against enough other dealers, that the rest don't want to ship into FL at all.


Now, that sounds unreasonable, but if I were a dealer who had spent lots of money on buying an exclusive franchise zone, it might seem totally proper.
