When the V6 V MAX SHO® struck the water, it shattered every preconceived notion. In the world of competition fishing, it introduced four-stroke efficiency to the two-stroke realm. It was a first for the circuit, and pro anglers soon adopted the V MAX SHO as their go-to engine. It’s still going strong more than ten years later, having recently powered four straight Bassmaster® Angler of the Year awards. It’s becoming better and is obviously still a competitive option. The V6 V MAX SHO now has a 40 percent more charging capacity and a visually appealing new cowling style.

In its wake, the V6 V MAX SHO has left a path of medals, titles, and cash. Four of the previous five Bassmaster® Angler of the Year wins were actually fueled by it.

Compact & Powerful Powerhead

Sleeveless cylinders made of plasma-fused material are 60% tougher and lighter than steel. Additionally, they enable us to increase cylinder bores without growing their dimensions, resulting in 4.2 liters of big-bore displacement without the need for weight addition.

Dependability and Sturdiness

Smooth and Quiet

Gases are sent through a labyrinth exhaust through a maze-like structure and out through an idle exhause relief outlet above the water line. This, along with a mufflerless design, produces remarkably quiet and smooth operation, even at idling, with a pleasant power sound.

Convenience & Control

Charging Power 

The charging power of the V6 V MAX SHO may now reach up to 70 gross amps. Your expanding collection of on-board technology will have more than enough power thanks to this thrilling 40% improvement in charging. An optional isolator lead is also available for them, which would improve the charging of trolling or house batteries.

V MAX SHO® 2022 Yamaha 250hp 225hp 200hp

The V MAX SHO Series propellers are specifically made for V MAX SHO® V6 20-inch-shaft outboards. They come in 22 to 27-inch pitch increments, allowing you to fine-tune your wide-open-throttle RPM for competitive performance.

Real-Time Performance Data

You may access real-time outboard performance, boat systems, and environmental data with optional digital backlit gauges. Streamlined displays come in square or circular shapes and are made to endure the weather for single- or multi-engine installations.

Fast, Easy Tilting

Yamaha’s unique, exclusive TotalTilt® tilts fully up or down until it hits the trim rams with a simple double-tap of the trim button. This facilitates quick and simple trailering and comes in useful when a full up or down tilt is required.
