The all-new Yamaha 275 Series is the “Revs Your Heart” brand’s first foray into the luxury 27-foot
category. For 2020, the 275 Series is available in two choices: the deluxe 275SE and the flagship
275SD.

The 275SE features a semi-rigid top while the SD model features a hardtop with skylight. Exclusive to
the top-of-the-line 275SD model is Yamaha’s new DRiVE system with paddle controls on the steering
wheel that provide new levels of confidence for manoeuvring a 27-foot boat in tight spaces and around
the dock.

All-New Styling Concept from Yamaha
The added length of the 275 Series inspired Yamaha engineers to stretch their imagination and design
prowess, and they succeeded beyond expectation. The profile of the 275 Series is powerful and
unique, with the flair of a luxury runabout boat that one might see moored in Europe. The driverforward
position and bold wrap-around window treatment add to the 275’s sophisticated allure, while
the expansive stern play area and open walkthrough transom give the impression that a party could
start at a moment’s notice.

Twin, Yamaha Supercharged Marine Engines
The Yamaha 275 Series boats are the first to feature twin, supercharged Yamaha 1.8-litre SVHO
marine engines. The Yamaha SVHO engine is powerful, fuel-efficient and virtually maintenance
free. And because these compact, lightweight engines and the driveline are placed deep inside the
hull, acceleration is instant, bow rise is minimal and more deck space is available for fun.

Yamaha DRiVE Function with Paddle Controls
Yamaha’s flagship 275SD features an industry-first low-speed function called DRiVE. The patented
DRiVE system allows the operator to precisely and confidently manoeuvre this 27-foot boat around
docks, launch ramps and other tight, congested spaces.

The DRiVE function is engaged using the Connext touchscreen. One touch and DRiVE is enabled. It’s
that simple. Then, by using actuating paddle controls on the steering wheel, the operator can toggle
between forward or reverse and can control speeds in both directions. And because there’s no
gearcase to shift with a jet driveline, the action is completely seamless. At no time does the driver
need to remove their hands from the steering wheel. The result is a new standard of slow-speed
manoeuvrability that is intuitive, comfortable and convenient.

Yamaha Connext Touchscreen
Yamaha’s award-winning Connext touchscreen is the hub for entertainment functions, DRiVE control,
GPS mapping and important boat data when underway. And its minimalistic 12.3-inch “floating” design
adds to the 275’s sophisticated helm layout.

With more than 16 million colours and 1000 nits backlight, the Connext display is much brighter than a
Smartphone, making it easy to see in direct sunlight. With the motors turned on, the main screen
displays engine RPMs, water depth, fuel level and operating speed. To control the other functions of
the 275, just select the appropriate tab located across the top of the display. Yamaha’s Connext
touchscreen is intuitive, reliable and made from the most durable materials available for marine
electronics.

Industry-First Swim-Up Stern Seating
Industry-first features can be found everywhere on the new Yamaha 275 Series boats, including a new
patent-pending innovation at the stern. When at anchor, two removable seats can be attached that sit
just below the water’s surface, providing comfortable in-water seating facing the transom of the
boat. With the ladder in between both seats, getting back on the boat is a breeze. When you’re
ready to get underway, simply bring the seats back on board.

Convertible Stern Lounges
One of the chiinef goals in the design of the new Yamaha 275 Series was to connect the stern and the
cockpit areas so that the inside of the 275 feels like one large area for all types of entertaining. To do
this, Yamaha designers chose new convertible stern seating with seat backs that can be flipped
forward or aft to provide versatile seating options throughout the stern and cockpit. The area overall is
slightly larger than a full-size bed, so the options for lounging and entertaining are bigger than ever
before.

Galley with Premium Counter and Plumbed Sink
The 275 Series is designed for socializing, which makes its galley area such a great addition. The
galley features one of the largest counters in its class and a plumbed sink that comes standard. The
galley area integrates perfectly with the flow of the boat, sculpted in aft of the driver and easily
accessible for all passengers in the cockpit. Large storage areas under the counter provide space for
a full weekend’s worth of supplies. The sleek design combined with complete functionality makes this
galley design a feature the premium boater will appreciate every time they’re out on the water.
Expansive Port-Side Storage/Head Compartment

Taking advantage of the wide beam on the 275 Series, Yamaha engineers were able to create an
extra-large head compartment and portside storage area located just in front of the passenger
captain’s seat. With a huge door that swings open wide, accessing the area is a breeze, even for
adults. The premium features continue inside the compartment with a new extendable shelf area with
storage compartments.
