Yamaha Marine Group has announced a new member of its V MAX SHO family for 2018, the V MAX SHO 90. The new addition is the smallest of the SHO family.
“The new V MAX SHO 90 is the perfect power solution for boaters looking to replace an older two-stroke 90-horsepower outboard with the clean, quiet efficiency of a four-stroke,” said Ben Speciale, president, Yamaha Marine Group. “It’s also a great choice for inshore and multi-species boats.”
Yamaha’s V MAX SHO 90 features a single overhead camshaft driving four valves per cylinder, delivering more power from less weight.
The new V MAX SHO 90 offers a new level of quiet for fishing when matched with Yamaha propellers featuring the exclusive Shift Dampener System (SDS), such as the Talon SS4 SDS propeller.
For more convenience and control, the V MAX SHO 90 is compatible with Yamaha’s variable trolling RPM switch (VTS) for slow trolling. It is also Y-COP compatible for increased theft protection.
Because it is a four-stroke, Yamaha’s V MAX SHO 90 does not need an oil tank, leading to more space for storage or batteries. In addition, the V MAX SHO 90 can be rigged for use with Yamaha’s multifunction tiller handle.
Other features include a full 35 amps of alternator power and a long-span mounting system for less vibration.
The new Yamaha V MAX SHO 90 will be on display to the public for the first time during the 2018 Chicago and Minneapolis Boat Shows.
