The first impression I had of the new Yamaha 250 Four Stroke VMAX SHO motor was that it looked fast just sitting on the trailer. It has this high-tech sexy-cool appearance, where you just know it’s going to scream. And once you start it, it has a different sound. I’ve been around outboards all my life, and I knew that engine was going to fly.
In the past, the limited holeshot produced by four stroke motors has always presented a problem for technical flats fishermen, but the first chance I got to drive the Yamaha 250 Four Stroke VMAX SHO I thought, “Boy oh boy…now THAT’S POWER!”
