Yamaha Unveils New Freshwater Products

12-Feb-2015

Yamaha Marine Group recently announced the introduction of six new outboards targeted at the freshwater boating market.

There are four new additions to the V MAX SHO outboard family, all of which are compact, lightweight and capable of performance typically associated with two strokes, but with the convenience, fuel-efficiency and quiet operation of a four stroke.

The new V MAX SHO 115 and V MAX SHO 175 round out the horsepower offerings of the V MAX SHO family, which already includes V MAX SHO 150, 200, 225 and 250 models. The new V MAX SHO 150 X-Shaft and V MAX SHO 250 X-Shaft are the first members of the V MAX SHO family to feature a 25-inch shaft length, making them ideal for pontoons, multispecies fish boats, and larger bay boats. Each of the new outboards allows Yamaha’s V MAX SHO family to integrate with more boat types, meeting the needs of more freshwater boaters.

Yamaha Marine also unveiled an updated version of its most popular outboard model, the 2.7-liter F150. The outboard gets a new pan and cowl styling with an eight-tooth clutch dog that shifts smoother than the previous six-tooth design. A refreshed version of Yamaha's F8 portable outboard with a shortened tiller handle and improved look was likewise introduced.
