A lightweight heavyweight.

In technical terms, the V MAX SHO is a masterpiece of engineering craftsmanship. In order to achieve the results we wanted – low weight with high performance - our engineers came up with a single overhead camshaft format, with 4 large valves per cylinder and a special long-track intake manifold.

That’s why the V MAX SHO 90 is ideally suited for the light, fast exciting boats that people use to get out and have fun with their friends. In fact, despite its compact size and modest weight, it still delivers best-in-class torque and high speeds – without compromising our signature quality.

      SOHC design with 4 valves per cylinder

      To keep weight down and efficiency up, the V MAX SHO 90hp features an unusual internal design - a single overhead camshaft with 4 valves per cylinder. This set-up means less mass in the cylinder head and reduced overall engine weight. The 4 valves per cylinder format also helps deliver highly efficient combustion which, in turn, increases power, torque and economy.

      Tuned long-track induction system

      The long-track intake manifold is another special feature of the V MAX SHO - specially designed to boost out-of-the-hole performance as well as torque, acceleration and top speed.

      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 35 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 90hp with a three-phase alternator. With its 35 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.

      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.

      Variable Trolling RPM (option)

      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.

      Compatibility with a wide range of gauges

      The very latest technology is incorporated in our models, so the V MAX SHO 90hp 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.

      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.
