The Yamaha V MAX SHO. Quicker, stronger, smarter and lighter – outperforming two strokes on hole shot, displacement, fuel economy and weight. The addition of a five-inch longer shaft means multi-species boaters can now enjoy the benefits that have made the V MAX SHO famous. These models are also perfect for a variety of other applications that require a 25-inch shaft length.
