Yamaha Outboards recognized by Consumers Digest as Best Buy

In determining the ratings, the editors of Consumers Digest considered design, efficiency, performance and price.

Two Yamaha outboards, the Yamaha V MAX Series  2 VZ250 and the Yamaha V MAX Series 2 VZ300  have been awarded a Consumers Digest  Best Buy rating in the August 2008 issue of the Consumers Digest  publication.

"We are pleased the editors of Consumers Digest  have chosen the V MAX Series 2," said Dale  Barnes, Yamaha Marine Group marketing division manager. "Yamaha  is particularly proud to be the only brand recognized in the 200-hp-and-  up category. This is an endorsement for the efforts we have made to  refine and improve our V MAX line."

In determining the ratings, the editors of Consumers Digest considered design, efficiency, performance and price.

"During our testing, this engine took a  21-foot bass boat from zero to 30 mph in 3 seconds and to 70 mph in  about 15 seconds," said the editors of Consumers  Digest of the V MAX Series 2  VZ250 in the August issue.
