I am kind of flirting with the idea of upgrading my fishing boat. Found a couple that I am interested in. I have heard some good things about Yamaha, and wanted to know if anyone knows what the difference is in a standard Yamaha 4-stroke engine vs a V-Max? Looking at two model year 2005 boats, what would be the more desirable engine & why?

What size and style of boat? I have a 3.1l 225 VMAX and it pushes my Skeeter just dandy. Never had any issues with the outboard itself.

Thanks Longdraw. So, I am considering 2 boats. Both 2005, one with a standard Yamaha 150, one with a 150 VMAX.

What is the difference between the motors?
