2021 Yamaha Marine VF115 VMAX SHO Yamaha expands the successful V MAX SHO family to include the 115-horsepower segment - where smaller boats and other craft play. And it's every bit a V MAX SHO, compact, lightweight and capable of performance typically associated with two strokes, but with the convenience and quiet of a four stroke. Who could want more? Features may include: LIGHT WEIGHT The four-stroke V MAX SHO 115 weighs 377 pounds, and it has the added benefit of not needing two-stroke oil or an oil tank (or the added weight). A competitor's two-stroke weighs 390 pounds. The V MAX SHO 115 is the lightest four-stroke DOHC 115-horsepower outboard on the water. It uses a lightweight composite lower pan and cowling, a single-ram power trim and tilt mechanism and a lightweight mounting bracket. SMOOTH & QUIET Remember, this is a four stroke, so it's quiet by nature. On top of that, Yamaha has harmonized all the inertial mass components and added large rubber engine mounts. The result is smoothness and quiet that will impress. YAMAHA RELIABILITY The V MAX SHO 115 powerhead design is based on proven Yamaha four-stroke technology. It also uses Yamaha's Phaze Five? paint system, which includes the electro-deposition of anti-corrosive paint on both the inside and outside passages of the engine block. Inside the engine, dimpled cylinder sleeves, like those used on the Yamaha F350, reduce weight and add strength. They also aid in heat transfer and help to keep the engine reliably cooler.
