Yamaha 450-Horsepower XTO Outboard: Upgrades & Features Explained

Florida Sportsman Editor Jeff Weakley joins David Meeler, New Product Manager for Yamaha Outboards, during the 2023 Miami International Boat Show to discuss the introduction and features of the new Yamaha 450 XTO Outboard. With innovations to the Yamaha suite over the years, these new outboards offer unparalleled maneuverability and power. David also covers what changes have been made to distinguish the XTO 450 from the XTO 425.

Yamaha's award-winning 5.6L V8 XTO Offshore® outboards, and their innovative engineering, set the bar for power and performance offshore. With extreme control, precision and reliability—and now up to 450 horses—the XTO Offshore lets you go further, faster and with more confidence than ever before. Packed with industry-first technology like a direct-injection four-stroke powerhead, an award-winning charging system and integrated all-electric steering, the word outboard is an understatement. It's a fully integrated power system. And it's elevating the entire offshore boating experience. Check out the performance bulletin here for full specs and details for the 450 XTO.

Lucy Berg, Yamaha Product Specialist, also explains what is new for 2023 with the Yamaha Helm Master Suite including upgrades to functionality and appearance.
