Extreme offshore performance and durability - Not to mentions striking good looks.

Extreme – Go beyond the next level.This is an outboard that effortlessly combines unrivalled power,
torque, and speed with cutting-edge technology and performance.

The muscular new shape and dynamic look of the XTO immediately communicate its incredible industry-first concepts and technologies waiting to be unleashed. The first direct injection 4-stroke, the first with integral electronic steering, the first to achieve a new level of reverse thrust, torque, and speed. It's a genuine performance revolution for larger boats and an incredible story. Achieve the ultimate.

0132-valve, DOHC, 60 deg, V8

The large-displacement 5,559 cm3 60° V8, 32-valve DOHC four-stroke engine is packed with features. These include a direct fuel injection that uses a very high fuel pressure sprayed via robust fuel injector that directly enters into the combustion chamber. Outstanding atomization of the fuel spray greatly increases the effectiveness of the fuel burn for maximum power and fuel efficiency. Dual overhead camshafts on each cylinder bank are connected via a self-tensioning chain immersed in an oil bath. Quiet, precise, and maintenance-free connection for proper and consistent valve timing.


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.

03Plasma Fusion Sleeve

A plasma-fusion process on 4.2 liters and 5.6 liters powerheads replaces conventional steel cylinder liners with a micro-textured surface that is 60% harder than steel and much lighter. The process also greatly increases fuel economy and contributes to increased displacement without increasing the size of the powerhead.

04High-pressure Fuel Delivery System

A three stage fuel pump system (low, medium, and high) that ultimately delivers very high fuel pressure to direct fuel injectors that spray directly inside the combustion chamber. Stable output is maintained by supplying fuel with an appropriate compression ratio.

05In-water Gear Lube Change System

Allows draining and replacement of lower unit lubricant without having to remove the boat from the water. Maintainability has been increased by allowing the user to work on the boat without removing it from the water.

06Electric Steering

Fully electric steering is the first of its kind in outboards. Uses an electrical motor to directly move and secure the outboard, rather than using hydraulics and an electric pump (known as electro-hydraulic steering). Very fast, precise, responsive, leak-free, maintenance-free, and uncomplicated, fully electric steering makes for reduced power consumption, clean rigging, and a very orderly bilge area. Reductions in electric power consumption result in reductions in fuel costs.

07Thrust Enhancing Exhaust Routing

Diverts engine exhaust away from propellers at rpm below around 2,500, allowing for maximum command and control at low speeds. Also greatly increases the effectiveness of the Yamaha Helm Master fully-integrated boat control system.

08XTO OS Series (SDS) propeller /XTO EC Series (SDS) Propeller (For F450A/F400A)

The XTO OS propellers are specifically and exclusively designed only for the XTO outboards. It generates extreme thrust output thanks to specially designed blades and a massive blade surface area, providing excellent acceleration, cruising and top speed characteristics along with reduced ventilation. It is incorporated with Yamaha’s exclusive Shift Dampener System (SDS) making shifting into gear much quieter and smoother.

And the XTO EC propellers for F450A/F400A are specifically created for applications where propeller ventilation may be an issue due to the tremendous power and torque of XTO Offshore outboards.
Designed exclusively to help alleviate ventilation that can occasionally occur due to the immense torque potential of Yamaha’s revolutionary 5.6L V8 XTO Offshore outboard, XTO EC propellers use large diameter and specially-designed blade surface area to push a large column of water.
Additionally, they’re designed with extra trailing edge cup to help the blades hold water longer for better grip in applications where ventilation can be an issue.

09Multi-part Cowling System

Unique to Yamaha’s Offshore XTO outboard, the cowling and engine covers are integrated via fasteners and a special one-piece seal to allow easier access to specific portions of the powerhead and mid-section while preventing water intrusion and corrosion.

10Power Management System

A sophisticated and powerful engine management system controls the isolator charging circuit, power trim & tilt (PT&T) operation, ETV, DI, Fuel Pumps and Main relay, etc.
Each system can be centrally controlled, allowing each component to be maintained and warning signs to be seen at early stages.

11Exhaust Fan and Outlet

To address the potential of any “residual” heat buildup, a very effective rotary cooling fan was developed and integrated into the motors flywheel. Basically, whenever an F375A-F450A is running, air is continually being drawn from the “flywheel/stator” area of the motor, and ducted to an exit at the front of the upper motor cover (as illustrated). Even at low engine speeds, this innovative cooling system is still very effective at drawing heat from the flywheel area of the motor.

12Phase Angle Control (PAC) Charging System (For F450A)

To help meet the extreme electrical demands of today’s larger boats, the F450A features a three phase, simultaneous charging system that delivers an incredible amount of net* amps and at lower rpm, where it’s needed most.
Using Phase Angle Control (PAC) to adjust the intensity of the stator’s magnetic field, the F450A produce up to 96 net amps per engine in neutral. That’s plenty of power for today’s popular on-board, high-demand devices like gyro stabilizers, air conditioning, sound systems, and more.
In fact, the Phase Angle Control charging system on the F450A is so powerful, it can even eliminate the need for an on-board generator in many applications. The system also prioritizes charging to the starting batteries, keeping them charged and ready for action at all times.
Now, boaters can relax and enjoy boating with the confidence they’ve got the most innovative charging system available in an outboard.

13Durable Lower Unit

The lower case is itself larger while offering enabling higher maximum speeds and greater stability. Additionally, durability and anticorrosion properties have been improved by redesigning the passages in which oil moves inside the case and utilizing stainless steel components. Furthermore, a new gear-oil replacement system allows gear oil to be changed while the boat is moored.

14Integrated SBW

This revolutionary, totally electric, steer by wire unit is completely contained on the outboard. Silky smooth operation is accomplished with virtually effortless steering inputs. Other benefits of SBW include:

  • Attractive, and very clean appearance.
  • Minimal maintenance required.
  • Has faster steering response times than typical hydraulic systems.
  • No separate modules, steering pumps, hoses or interconnecting harnesses.
  • Simplified installation, with never any fluids or air to purge.
  • Allows 7 degrees more tilt “Up” angle (when compared to F350 models).
  • Energy efficient, with greater durability against the harsh marine environment.

Additionally, each engine constantly monitors the position of the permanent engine when in multi-engine mode, the system thus controlling all components to ensure sufficient distance between engines.
Furthermore, this is a dual-system-monitoring system, meaning that the boat can be maneuvered with the backup system even in the rare event that a malfunction occurs. Even if a malfunction that precludes steering occurs, the design permits the rudder to be adjusted manually.
Thus, the system provides stable, reliable steering that can be configured for various conditions the boat might encounter.

15TotalTilt™ Function (For F450A/F400A)

The F450A/F400A is equipped with Yamaha’s exclusive TotalTilt™ feature for easier engine tilting. It allows complete tilt up from any position with a simple double-push of the “UP” trim/tilt button, or full tilt down (until trim ram contact) by the same double push of the “DOWN” trim/tilt button. For safety, a warning horn will sound just before and during these operations. Movement and the horn can be stopped anywhere in between by pressing the tilt button again.

16Noise Reduction Silencer (For F450A/F400A)

The intake noise is reduced by installing a silencer at the intake port of the electronic throttle body.

17Propeller Light (For F450A/F400A, Optional)

Optional for boats featuring the F450A/F400A with Helm Master™ EX Full Maneuverability, there is an available Integrated propeller light. The light mounts directly in the rear apron of the outboards rather than requiring independent lights on the transom. These clearly indicate the boat is actively in Set point mode to anyone approaching from stern.
