    Exceptional power, torque and control

    Ready for Xtreme Thrust Output? This flagship V8 unit delivers power, performance and precision control. Working hand in glove with our unique Helm Master EX® control system, now with bow thruster compatibility, you will experience a seamlessly integrated total power and control solution for larger offshore boats.

    5.6 litres of naturally aspirated V8 power

    At the heart of this flagship powerhouse is Yamaha's very latest technology, taken to new levels. With features like five-pump Direct Fuel Injection, Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT), Double Overhead Camshafts (DOHC), dual chamber oil pump, two-stage water pump, quadruple thermostats, our unique in-bank exhaust system.

    TotalTilt™ function with integrated tilt limit

    Yamaha’s exclusive TotalTilt™ function allows complete tilt up or down (until trim ram contacts) from any position with a simple double-push of the respective tilt button. During the process, a buzzer sounds to alert crew to keep clear of the outboard, and the integrated tilt limiter can be customised to suit any boat.

    Ultimate efficiency from Direct Injection

    Yamaha is dedicated to delivering ever-greater efficiency and economy and the fuel system on the XTO is a perfect example of this in action. From the first-ever Direct Injection four-stroke engine in its class to the thrust-enhancing exhaust system.

  • alt

    Integrated Digital Electric Steering

    This highly efficient built-in steering system delivers a smoother and more intuitive experience when at the helm, it is lighter and less complex than a separate hydraulic system plus is cleaner to fit and operate, and far quicker and simpler to rig.

  • alt

    Thrust-enhancing exhaust system.

    This system expels the exhaust via a combination of three different routes, depending on the rpm level. The result is around 300% more reverse thrust, better balance between forward and reverse thrust when manoeuvring with Helm Master EX®, and greater efficiency at full power.

  • alt

    Easy to maintain

    An in-water gear oil change with the boat still at the dock simplifies this process and a multi-part cowling with quick-access locks allows secure, easy access for maintenance and adjustments.

  • alt

    Tougher tech.

    Every bit of the XTO offers superior build quality. The massive crankshaft, the torque-absorbing heavy-duty gears, the extra-large diameter prop shaft, and the completely new gearcase design, with its low friction co-efficient and better cooling, all contribute to reliable performance.
