V MAX your torque.

The streamlined cowling design, with aggressive, stylish V MAX graphics, conceals advanced technology features like a 16-valve, double-overhead cam engine layout with variable camshaft timing and electronic fuel injection - but there’s no hiding the blistering acceleration and heart-pumping top speed.

From a practical viewpoint too, this is no ordinary outboard. For example, the 3-phase, high-power (50A) alternator provides plenty of juice to power all the on-board electronics. What’s more, it delivers enough power to charge your batteries even at trolling speed, so you will never run out of power.

      Double Overhead Camshaft with Four Valves Per Cylinder

      The 175 is the most powerful V MAX SHO and features our advanced 2.8 litre, 4-cylinder, 4-stroke engine, with 16-valves, double-overhead cam (DOHC) layout and counter-balance shafts. The result is ultra-smooth performance across the power spectrum. The powerhead design is based on Yamaha’s well proven four-stroke technology, so quiet reliability is also assured.

      VCT and multi-point EFI

      VCT (Variable Camshaft Timing) allows for perfect adjustment of air intake and exhaust timing to deliver optimum performance across the whole RPM range. The EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) system ensures quick starts and consistent power, with optimum fuel efficiency and ultra-low emissions.

      Lighter weight pays dividends

      Yamaha’s engineering team has been focusing on reducing weight – not only by reducing all unnecessary metal on the V MAX SHO engines, but also by developing a lighter lower pan and cowling in composite materials, a single-ram power trim and tilt mechanism and a lighter mounting bracket.

      Unique Yamaha ‘V MAX SHO’ cowling design

      Featuring Yamaha's already famous 'V MAX SHO' metallic black and red cowling, the new range shows off its heritage strongly, but the latest cowl design features a dynamic, aggressive and sporty new graphics scheme that makes a real statement. On the transom of your boat it clearly says “This is no ordinary outboard” – and it isn’t!

      High-power 50 Amp alternator

      We want to make sure you never lack power for starting, battery charging or running accessories when you’re out on the water, which is why we equip the V MAX SHO 150hp with a three-phase alternator. With its 50 Amp capacity, it even has the power to charge your batteries at trolling speed. That’s called peace of mind – and you can expect it when you own a Yamaha.

      Compatibility with a wide range of gauges

      The very latest technology is incorporated in our models, so the V MAX SHO 175hp is compatible with a very wide range of Yamaha’s exclusive digital control systems and gauges, from 6Y8 up to the newest CL5/CL7 gauges and displays. So when it comes to having clear, accurate engine data and performance information to help you run the boat, Yamaha systems are unmatched.

      Variable Trolling RPM (option)

      Trolling speed adjustment from 550-1000 RPM in 50 RPM increments. Ideal for fishing or when navigating waterways, marinas or speed limit areas. Trolling speed can be set to 200 RPM below idle speed. This function is only available when the engine is equipped with Yamaha's Multi-Function Tiller Handle, the 6Y8 or CL5/7 digital display or the new remote switch.

      Wide range of SDS propellers

      This dedicated range of propellers has been developed to complement the wide-ranging Yamaha outboards family and to help you fine-tune the engine/boat performance to fit your personal preferences. Many propellers within the range feature Yamaha’s exclusive Shift Dampener System (SDS®) which considerably reduces the normal noise and brings smoother, quieter shifting.

    • alt

      Optional Y-COP® security

      The V MAX SHO models are compatible with our exclusive Y-COP® (Yamaha Customer Outboard Protection) security system. It’s a simple, easy-to-use and highly effective option – the neat remote control unit locks and unlocks the engine at the push of a button, preventing your boat being taken for a joyride – and offering you peace of mind when leaving it unattended.
