VF175 Vmax Sho

Need to power something with a 20-inch transom and need more than 150 horsepower? Do you need very high performance and light weight along with all the benefits of four-stroke power, including clean, quiet operation and great fuel efficiency? The Yamaha V MAX SHO 175 is the solution with all the benefits you need!

 

Great overall performance and class-leading top speed come courtesy of Yamaha’s Variable Camshaft Timing System (VCTTM), which helps the 2.8-litre in-line four develop lots of power in the midrange where it counts.

 

A multitude of advanced sensors constantly provide vital atmospheric and engine conditions to the Engine Control Module (ECM), which instantly makes the precise adjustments for optimum performance.

 

 

Description

SMOOTH & EFFICIENT

The VF175 is super smooth and powerful, thanks to advanced double overhead cams, four valves per cylinder and counterbalance shafts. It’s also extremely fuel efficient, delivering 30-to-40 per cent better fuel efficiency than a carbureted two stroke.

ADDITIONAL SPACE

Efficient use of space is another benefit. The V MAX SHO 175 does not require carrying two-stroke oil. There’s no need for an oil tank, which means more room for batteries, tackle or storage in the boat.

EASY RIGGING

Thanks to mechanical control, the outboard offers easy rigging. You can equip it with your choice of analog, 6Y5 digital or Command Link® gauges.

RELIABILITY

With proven, Yamaha four-stroke, marine-specific architecture, the V MAX SHO 175 will provide years of reliability.

SLEEK DESIGN

Like its siblings – the V MAX SHO 115, V MAX SHO 150, V MAX SHO 200, V MAX SHO 225 and V MAX SHO 250 – the V MAX SHO 175 has powerful good looks with a paint scheme that looks like nothing else on the water.

EASIER FISHING

The V MAX SHO 175 is compatible with Yamaha’s variable trolling RPM switch (VTS), which allows anglers to adjust the trolling speed in 50 RPM increments from 650 to 900 RPM using a Yamaha Command Link® gauge.
