Next generation control, next generation integration, next generation styling, original reliability.
Yamaha’s all-new, V6 Offshore series takes the proven 4.2 litre engine platform to the next level by incorporating technological advancements previously only seen on Yamaha’s flagship V8 425hp XTO. Available in 225, 250 and 300 horsepower variants, the new V6 offshore models pack serious offshore grunt and refined engine features in equal measure.
Yamaha’s new offshore V6 outboards have been designed to be completely integrated in to the boats power, steering and control systems. To achieve this, Yamaha has included built in Digital Electric Steering (DES) in the new F250 DES and F300 DES models. This new DES system delivers extreme precision and smoothness and is a huge advancement in boat control. When combined with Yamaha’s Helm Master EX control system, these engine packages deliver boating and fishing experience unlike any else on the water.
Inspired by Yamaha's V8 XTO 425, the strong lines and more aggressive styling reflects the awesome power and performance, while maintaining Yamaha's sleek, compact and premium look. The one-piece top cowling with water-draining air duct moulding, includes a new bottom cowling and apron shape and raised chrome graphics on the built-in Digital Electric Steering (DES) models.
For the first time ever, Yamaha outboard owners can now choose from Yamaha's traditional signature grey or all-new pearlescent white. The pearlescent white colour option is only available on F250 (DES) and F300 (DES) models.
Helm Master® EX is an industry-first fully integrated digital boat control system that delivers next level control over your boat for increased boating and fishing enjoyment. Now available for single and multiple outboard engine applications.
Featuring plasma-fused, sleeveless cylinders, double overhead camshafts (DOHC) and four valves per cylinder, these 4.2 Litre advanced V6 engines are extremely light, powerful and fuel efficient.
The 'drive-by-wire' throttle and shift offers the driver simple, smooth and precise operation.
The plasma fusion process creates a cylinder wall surface that is 60% harder than steel, removing the need for conventional steel cylinder sleeves. The removal of these sleeves significantly reduces weight while increasing capacity in the engine, resulting in an improved power-to-weight performance.
Yamaha's ongoing weight-saving program has delivered an innovative in-bank exhaust system, with the manifold integrated into the cylinder head. Along with other weight-saving technologies and materials, helps to create a supremely compact and light engine design.
The electronic throttle valve provides sure and more precise valve opening and closing according to each engine temperature and atmospheric condition. This system works in tune with the fuel injection and ignition systems, to deliver incredible response and exceptional fuel economy.
This optional system for twin and triple installations automatically synchronises engines to allow a simple one-touch start and stop capability, for ease of use.
Yamaha’s Shift Dampener System (SDS) propellers greatly reduce the noise associated with shifting an engine in and out of gear by absorbing the forces generated when forward and reverse gears are engaged.
The Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) advances and retards the camshaft timing according to the engine RPMs. This in combination with the electronically controlled single throttle valve system and long intake manifold boosts low and mid-range torque for optimum acceleration.
The new control box gives you push-button up and down Speed Control. Keep pushing the down button to enter the Pattern Shift mode, which automatically places the engine in and out of gear for slower-than-idle-speed trolling, for perfect lure presentation.
IT'S ALL ABOUT RELIABILITY...
