    VF225

    The VF225 VMAX SHO (Super High Output) has redefined the high-performance outboard market with its ground breaking blend of low weight, incredible power and high-end speed. Purpose-built for the competitive bass fishing market, this 4.6 litre, V6, 24-valve outboard, is also the engine of choice for high-speed adrenalin junkies, skiers and shallow-hull performance enthusiasts. With its great fuel economy, whisper quiet operation and exceptional reliability, this extraordinary engine has made the old two-stroke vs four-stroke argument completely redundant. The VF225 comes with a high-output alternator to run all the necessary electronic accessories and includes Yamaha’s variable trolling control, which allows you to adjust the engine speed up or down in 50 RPM increments to achieve perfect lure presentation speeds.  If speed and high-end performance is your thing, then look no further than the VF225.

    VMAX SHO’s have been engineered specifically to deliver unrivalled hole-shot and acceleration, with an equally impressive top-end speed. Our new V6 VMAX SHO ® outboards not only look great with their aggressive styling upgrades, redesigned cowling and eye-catching raised graphics, these high-performance engines also incorporate some great new features including Yamaha’s TotalTiltTM trim system, as seen on our new V6 Offshore range.  We have also increased the alternator output by a massive 40%, now producing 70 gross charging amps, enough to power an extensive range of electronic devices.
