150 HP 4-STROKE VMAX SHO OUTBOARD

THE YAMAHA VMAX SHO: THE RULES HAVE CHANGED!

Introducing the 2.8L four-stroke VF150 VMAX SHO. Weighing in at just 217 kg (480lbs) this compact high-performance powerhouse boasts an amazing hole shot while maintaining incredible fuel efficiency.

What is a V MAX SHO? It is a fast, solid, intelligent and lightweight engine that leaves the two-stroke in the dust in terms of displacement, fuel economy and mass. In addition, thanks to the 12.7 cm (5 in.) Long shaft, aka "X-Shaft", owners of multi-species boats will also benefit from the advantages that made the VMAX SHO. The X-Shaft models are ideal for a myriad of applications requiring a 25-inch shaft.

The V MAX SHO 150 is compatible with Yamaha's VTS (TM) Variable Tread Switch - a feature that allows anglers to adjust the trolling speed in 50 rpm ranges from 600 to 900 rpm, Using the Command Link (MD) indicators.

The Yamaha VMAX SHO is faster, more robust, evolved and lighter than its rivals. It dominates even the two-stroke in its class in displacement, weight and fuel economy. Choose the engine that will offer you maximum enjoyment on the water, whether you are an amateur, on a casual outing or you love the thrill of water sports.

Each of the engines we offer is equipped with Yamaha’s latest technology for marine engines, architecture and the intake and exhaust systems. In addition, our four-stroke engines are successful because, instead of adapting car engines to the marine environment, we have designed and developed these marine four-stroke engines from scratch.

To better preserve the marine environment, Yamaha uses novel technologies for clean combustion that do not alter the qualities, power or performance of their motors.

/// FUEL EFFICIENT
The four-stroke V MAX SHO® 150 offers fuel consumption that is 30 to 40 percent better than that of traditional carbureted two strokes.

///EXTRA SPACE
Because it's a four-stroke, there's no need for an external oil tank with the V MAX SHO® 150. That's a savings of approximately 23 pounds - that means less weight and more storage room in the boat for tackle and other items.

/// EASY RIGGING
The new four-stroke V MAX SHO® 150 has mechanical control for easy, convenient rigging with most bass, bay and flats boats; with a choice of analog, 6Y5 digital or Command Link® gauges.

/// WEIGHT
At 480 pounds, the four-stroke V MAX SHO®150 weighs just 12 pounds more than Yamaha's two-stroke VZ150. That, alone, is amazing. Once you consider the weight of the oil tank, the V MAX SHO®150 weighs about the same on the boat as the VZ150. What's more, not having an oil tank frees up space in the boat.

///YAMAHA'S VARIABLE CAMSHAFT TIMING
System advances and retards the angle of the intake camshaft to dramatically increase power and throttle response in the low- and mid-rpm ranges. This feature helps the four-stroke V MAX SHO® 150 generate the kind of performance that you expect from traditional two-stroke outboards.
