Having kick started the 2021 boating season with the launch of the all new Yamaha V6 Offshore range, Yamaha Australia is excited to announce their latest outboard offerings for the Aussie market. With boat owners increasingly looking to customise the look and finish of their boats, Yamaha has announced the release of pearlescent white engine options on their popular and ever dependable F115, F150 and F200 outboard line-up.
Yamaha Marine, National Sales and Marketing Manager, Grant Binskin said, “Our customers have told us they want more choice, better integration and increased customisation, when it comes to powering their pride and joy.”
“In 2020 we launched our industry leading Helm Master EX joystick boat control system, taking outboard integration to the next level, with the ability to customise outboard set-ups with digital electronic controls, digital electric steering, autopilot and joystick capabilities, on both multi engine and single engine applications. More recently we launched our new Yamaha V6 Offshore range which saw Yamaha’s exclusive built-in electric steering and enhanced reverse thrust capabilities come across from our big-horsepower V8 XTO425, with the choice of pearlescent white and traditional Yamaha grey finishes.”
“We are now offering this pearlescent white model option across all our key high-horsepower models including XTO425, F300, F250 and now F200, F150 and F115 models, allowing owners of fibreglass, painted and wrapped aluminium hulls to match their engine colour to their boat finish,” Grant said.
Hot on the heels of the recent V6 Offshore release, Yamaha is also launching their newly upgraded VMAX SHO® (Super High Output) 4.2L V6 range, which comes in 200, 225 and 250 horsepower options.
VMAX SHO’s have been engineered specifically to deliver an exceptional hole-shot and acceleration, with an equally impressive top-end speed.
Originally created for the US tournament bass boat market, these premium outboards are also well suited to a wide range of high-octane boating activities including water-skiing, racing, competitive fishing and other water sports.
“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 TotalTilt™ trim system, as seen on our recently launched V6 Offshore range. We have also increased the alternator output by a massive 40%, now producing 70 charging amps, enough to power an extensive range of electronic devices,” Grant said.
The pearlescent white F115, F150 and F200 models are expected to hit Australian shores in the coming weeks, while the VMAX SHO® is expected in July.
