Yamaha VMax

Mar 30, 2021

Yamaha Motor Canada has launched an upgraded 4.2-litre V MAX SHO® outboard, offering a full 40 percent more charging capacity and contemporary styling as it enters a new era of reliable service.

“Today’s boats have an ever-increasing array of advanced electronics, and boaters want to know their systems have plenty of power to take them wherever they need to go,” said Rob Bradley, Yamaha Motor Canada’s marine product specialist. “The newly upgraded V MAX SHO V6 offers this confidence as battery charging capability increases from 50 to 70 amps.”

Tested by tournament anglers and weekend warriors alike, V MAX SHO outboards are renowned for power, performance and reliability coupled with smooth, quiet operation and incredible fuel economy.

At 200, 225 or 250 prop-shaft horsepower, and with select models available with a 25-inch shaft, these outboards are appropriate for a variety of applications. Yamaha also offers an optional isolator lead to better charge house or trolling batteries.

Also new is Yamaha’s exclusive TotalTilt feature. With a double tap of the trim button, new SHO models will tilt from current position to full tilt up (or to tilt limit setting, whichever is lowest) or down to the engagement of the trim rams without further interaction by the operator (for safety, a warning horn will sound before and during these operations). A simple push of the tilt button can also stop movement anywhere in between. TotalTilt eliminates the need to hold the trim button making it easier for trailering or trimming the outboard up in shallow situations.

The newly upgraded 4.2-litre V MAX SHO remains mechanically operated and uses hydraulic steering, so it maintains familiarity, ease of rigging and service. It is suitable for cable-driven foot pedal applications. With flexible gauge options from conventional analog gauges, or digital with the new CL5 digital touchscreen display or the CL7 full function MFD, the SHO outboards offer the power, performance and reliability boaters demand along with added charging power.

Yamaha’s new V MAX SHO will be available in May.

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
