Extreme system Integration for power and control
Another ‘Industry First’ for the V8 XTO is its fully integrated electric steering system, the first of its kind on any outboard. It has no hydraulic lines or linkages, so responds more quickly and smoothly than conventional systems. In addition, it allows for cleaner rigging and an orderly bilge area. Of course, the ultimate control solution is to team the V8 XTO with Yamaha’s unique and hugely successful Helmmaster® fully integrated boat control system, with its revolutionary joystick-controlled docking facilities and outstanding CL7™ colour display.
Extreme Convenience is the name of the game too
The special new XTO OS™ propellers are made to complement the huge torque potential of the Yamaha V8 XTO Offshore. These new props produce more thrust in both forward and reverse, using diameters from 16 to 17? inches. The latest blade design, with its huge surface area moves the very biggest boats with less effort and more control.
Thanks to the new exhaust-gas relief system, these propellers have yet another advantage; they ‘bite’ clean water in reverse, which helps yield reverse thrust up to three times that developed by Yamaha’s F350 … and that means easier manoeuvring and control when docking.
What’s more, with the V8 XTO you need go no further than the dock for a lower unit service, thanks to our unique gearcase lubricant exchange system that allows this to be done without the boat leaving the water. The V8 XTO Offshore also has great charging capabilities, providing up to 90 amps of total (gross) power.
So the ‘extreme’ future has already arrived!
In summary, Yamaha is leading the way in ‘extreme’ all-round performance with the new V8 XTO Offshore, which offers a unique ownership and driving experience that’s second to none. Revolutionary marine design and engineering technology, supreme innovation, quality and excellence – this is the future from Yamaha!
Style note: The new V8 XTO Offshore is available in an elegant new Pearlescent White colour scheme, as well as the classic Yamaha Grey.
European launch: Genoa Boat Show – Italy – from September 20th 2018
