The Yamaha V8 XTO Offshore™ is smarter, more powerful and more efficient than anything you’ve seen offshore. With groundbreaking design that allows for dockside serviceability and industry-first technology such as an electric steering system, it’s keeping yacht-class craft in the water, and moving them more reliably and efficiently than ever before. Scroll to see the tech.
Maximizes power and efficiency by spraying fuel at high pressure directly into the combustion chamber. It's the first four-stroke powerhead in the outboard industry to feature direct injection.
A three-stage low-medium-high pressure fuel pump system works, in part, due to two independent, rpm-activated fuel pumps in the Vapor Separator Tank. This unique five-pump system creates an unprecedented fuel injection pressure of up to 2900 PSI to further maximize atomization and efficiency.
Intake tracks enter the cylinder head from the outside of the powerhead. This gives exhaust gases room for a direct route to the lower unit and out through the propeller hub, streamlining the powerhead and improving flow.
With diameters from 16 to 17 1/8 inches and increased blade surface, XTO OS propellers complement the torque potential of our V8 XTO Offshore. They also contribute to greater thrust overall, including up to 300 percent more reverse thrust than the Yamaha F350.
The XTO features dual overhead camshafts that are each connected via a self-tensioning chain immersed in an oil bath and utilize one-sprocket belt engagement. This ensures quiet, precise valve-timing, compact design, low maintenance and long life.
A special carbon coating on shimless, bucket-style valve lifters increases durability and requires less maintenance.
The XTO's dual chamber oil pump ensures the proper flow and delivery at every engine speed.
This unique design ensures proper cooling water flow at all RPMs and improved temperature control. It features a massive rubber water impeller for high pressure and flow, and a steel impeller that helps provide sufficient water volume, even under the most extreme offshore conditions.
A micro-textured, plasma-fused design increases fuel economy and is lighter, more compact and 60 percent harder than steel. This allows us to enlarge cylinder bores and increase displacement without increasing the size of the powerhead, all while dramatically reducing friction.
For the first time ever, your technician can drain and replace your outboard's lower unit lubricant without having to remove the boat from the water. Here's to convenience and having more uninterrupted hours on the water.
Diverts engine exhaust away from the propeller at RPM below approximately 2,500, for maximum control at lower speed and increased precision of our Helm Master fully integrated boat control system.
The tilt pump shuts off when it reaches maximum tilt setting, rather than continuing to run, saving power and reducing noise at full trim in/out.
A unique design offers two methods for flushing the XTO, either through a built-in flushing system hose routed through the rigging tube/grommet or through conventional front-mounted direct-hose hook-up.
For minimized vibration and a more compact design, incredibly strong upper motor mounts placed wide on the exterior of the upper mid-section work in conjunction with our Long Span Mounting System.
The XTO's alternator delivers 90-plus amps of total available power, with up to 58 amps at trolling rpm and up to 72 amps net charging at around 1500 rpm, where it's needed most.
A redesigned rigging tube provides an extra 3.25 inches of clearance at the motor well when tilted up, and is compatible with most flat-transom installations.
The V8 XTO Offshore features an electric steering system—an industry first. An electric motor directly moves and secures the outboard, rather than using typical electro-hydraulics. This delivers responsive, precise, leak-free steering, while consuming less power, streamlining rigging and reducing maintenance.
The V8 XTO Offshore sends signals from the helm via its steering cylinder position sensor to its integral electronic steering control unit. Integrated functions include joystick calibration, lever sensor, toe-in/out adjustment, joystick thrust, lock to lock and steering friction adjustment.
The Helm Master SetPoint suite of functions features intelligent new upgrades for improved functionality, precision and control—from marina to open water. This includes the ability to precisely adjust your heading and position while remaining in StayPoint™, FishPoint™ or DriftPoint™ modes, and a new Pattern Shift function for trolling below standard in-gear troll speeds—as low as 0.5 mph in calm water.
Yamaha’s CL7 7-inch touchscreen display is our most streamlined instrumentation and is compatible with the new V8 XTO Offshore. The CL7 allows you to monitor vital boat functions and the performance of up to four outboards through one gauge. You can also access Helm Master and its upgraded SetPoint suite of precision boat control functions, and have the option built-in freshwater and saltwater maps.
*Weight refers to shortest shaft length, and is measured without motor oil, gearcase oil and propeller (except models 25 hp and under, which include a standard propeller). All Jet model weights include the jet pump assembly (weight estimated).
