After the last two summers of hot weather lasting long into the fall, you want to get out on the water and feel the spray of our local lakes as you speed across them. You may need to upgrade your current watercraft or get your very first and you’re not sure what the best choice is. The Yamaha WaveRunner line up just turned the big 3-0 last year and it’s still as strong as ever. Whether you just want to cruise or take the family tubing, there’s a machine for every activity and every budget.
The EX Series is brand new for Yamaha this year. It’s tailored for the more budget conscious purchaser, as well as the first time buyer. These crafts still pack a fun and playful watercraft experience into their lightweight SMC hull. You can have up to three people on the craft and there’s even a tow hook on the back. The EX, EX Sport, and EX Deluxe all retail for less than $9,000.
Taking a step up, the VX Series is consistently our best sellers, year in and year out. The high-end style and technology at a reasonable price makes them hard to resist. The VX and VX Deluxe are great machines for those who are still price conscious but want a little more luxury. The VX Cruiser offers a stadium style seat that gives everyone their own space. The VX Limited is the best bang for your buck – literally. It includes all the accessories you need to have for a fun summer with the family and friends. Need a little more power? The VX Cruiser HO puts you there faster.
The FX Series offers impressive performance and luxury features while also being the longest and most stable personal watercraft in the industry. The FX HO and Cruiser HO offer the same size engine while the Cruiser gives you that stadium style seating. Looking for even more power? Step on up to the FX SVHO and Cruiser SVHO! These PWCs offer a supercharged experience for those who like to push the speed limit. New this season, is the FX Limited SVHO. It has the same power as the FX SVHO with the same outrageous number of accessories as the VX Limited to give you a complete WaveRunner experience.
Back this year for the first time in over a decade is the GP series. Last seen in 2003, the GP was a powerhouse on the race circuit but was left behind as manufacturers moved from a two-stroke to a four-stroke engine. The GP1800 has been winning races around the world since it was released this model year. Sharp turning, a supercharged SVHO engine, and an extra light NanoXcel2 hull put this craft head and shoulders above the rest.
Rounding out the performance race crafts are the VXR and SuperJet. The VXR combines fun and race styling for a day on the water that’ll leave you with a smile. The SuperJet is the only stand up watercraft in the Yamaha line up and for closed course competition only.
No matter what WaveRunner you choose, your summer is certain to be full of laughs and good times. The spectacular Western New York waterways are waiting for you to join us out in the waves!
