THE PERFECT COMBINATION: XPRESS BOATS & YAMAHA OUTBOARDS 

Since 2007, Xpress Boats has xclusively chosen Yamaha Outboards to compliment our entire line of boats, including the high-performance X21Pro bass boats, along with our other bass, bay, skiff, crappie, catfish, hunting, and utility boats. The Yamaha V6 250 MAX SHO® gives our Bassmaster Elite anglers turn-key reliability and the dependable efficiency they need to get the job done. Benefits of the YamahaVF250LA include:

  • Plasma-fused sleeveless cylinders are lighter and 60 percent harder than steel
  • 4.2-liter big-bore displacement
  • Signature four-stroke fuel economy
  • Up to 12% better fuel efficiency than our two-stroke V MAX Series 2
  • A holeshot that’s up to 13 percent faster than two strokes
  • A 25-inch shaft option for both the V MAX SHO 200 and 250 models

Together, these professional anglers broke away from the notion that glass bottom boats are the only way to go and chose to run one of the finest performing, toughest, cost-effective aluminum boats on the Elite Series, the X21 Pro bass boat. The legendary reliability of Yamaha coupled with the performance of the Xpress Hyper-Life Hull and xcitement that only Xpress Boats can offer equals the right motor, right boat, right decision.

pro staff Bill LowenI’ve been running a Yamaha Outboard for 18 years now on my bass and waterfowl boats. When fishing, there are so many factors that I can’t control, such as weather, water conditions, and the fish, but I want to control what I can control and not worry about it. In my career with Yamaha, I’ve never had a mechanical issue with an outboard that has left me stranded or not able to return to the dock. Confidence equals success, so having a Yamaha allows me to focus on fishing and not worry about making it back to weigh in. The power, holeshot, and fuel economy are important, but having that reliability where if I want to run two hours each way during a tournament, I can do it with confidence. I don’t have to worry whether or not I will make it back. It’s never a thought.
