VF150 Vmax SHO
- Manufacturer Yamaha
Great Hole Shot, acceleration and Top Speed
The new V MAX SHO® 150 uses Yamaha's Variable Camshaft Timing System (VCT) for hole shot and acceleration that is noticeably quicker than that of the F150 and equal to that of the two-stroke VZ 150 HPDI.
The 2.8-liter, four-cylinder powerhead employs double-overhead cams, four valves per cylinder and counterbalance shafts for extra smooth performance.
The four-stroke V MAX SHO® 150 offers fuel consumption that is 30 to 40 percent better than that of traditional carbureted two strokes.
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.
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.
Uses Yamaha's new V MAX SHO® Series of propellers, which now offer single-inch pitches for more "dialed in" performance. new 22-inch and 23-inch pitches available soon.
A powerful 50-amp alternator offers 11 percent more power than that of the VZ150 HPDI.
Powerful Good Looks
The V MAX SHO® looks every bit the part of V MAX,® with a special paint scheme and exhaust that sets it apart from lesser outboards.
Based on proven Yamaha four-stroke, marine-specific architecture and years of solid performance.
- 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.
