Yamaha

Although outboard engines and PWCs may come to mind first when one hears the name Yamaha, this company also has a boat-building division that’s dedicated to one thing: building jet-powered runabouts. In fact, Yamaha is the best-selling brand of jet-boat in the country. A dozen boats up to 24’ make up the Yamaha line, with a mix of runabout and watersports-oriented models. At the 2013 Miami International Boat Show Yamaha won an NMMA Innovation Award for the development of their Thrust Directional Enhancement feature, which improves control at slow speeds; used boat buyers should be aware that in some older jet boat models wandering at slow speeds was regularly an issue, which this new feature addresses. And although these are jet boats, Yamaha encourages boaters to compare them against prop-driven runabouts. Reduced draft and the elimination of propeller dangers are the most obvious advantages, but in many cases, the Yamaha jet boats are also less expensive than comparable propeller-drive runabouts.

Led by the flagship FX Cruiser SHO®, the industry’s best-selling luxury-performance model ever, the 2013 FX® Series delivers the utmost comfort, convenience, storage capacity, towing ability, and unadulterated fun.

 

The FX® models offer the longest, most comfortable seats today when riding with multiple passengers without any compromises to performance and handling when riding solo.

Adding to the comfort of the premium two-piece seat is an additional bolster support to provide more comfort for the second passenger. Watertight storage is available under the rear section of the seat. Combined with the watertight helm storage, FX models feature two watertight storage areas.

But that is only the beginning. The FX® Series features a number of industry leading innovations that include an easy to use mechanical neutral, command link instrumentation buttons on the dash, and a fast access wet storage compartment located at the stern of the craft.  These features are exclusive to Yamaha and the FX® Series.

 

NanoXcel® Hulls and Decks

The styling of the FX® Series is a combination of symmetry, balance and sleek flow made possible by Yamaha’s exclusive closed molded process.

This process creates smooth, exact parts every time. There are no ribs or structural inconsistencies that show through the finished product.

All FX models feature Yamaha’s exclusive NanoXcel hull, deck, and liner material that significantly reduces overall weight, increases strength, and improves fuel economy.

In addition to the longer deck, the hull features a full keel for excellent straight-line tracking and comes with full-length outside chines for better stability in turns, particularly with multiple riders onboard.

At the stern of the craft is a large, deep reboarding step with multiple grab handles added. The FX® line sports the industry’s first and only stern wet storage compartment just below the tow eye. There is no need to unhook the towline when taking a break from towing and there is now a convenient place to store the line.

Unrivaled Driver Experience with Enhanced Cockpit Ergonomics

The 2013 FX® Series features a true neutral gear that is mechanical and enables the watercraft to be started in neutral to stay motionless in the water with the engine running. Integrated into the reverse handle, this system offers added control when docking and loading on a trailer.

The dash of the FX® Series includes multifunction instrumentation controls and mode buttons in easy-to-reach locations. Added to the cockpit is a spacious glove box for smaller items and watertight storage for cellphones, keys, and wallets, along with tilt steering and Yamaha’s exclusive Quick Shift Trim System, which can easily adjust the trim angle of the jet nozzle.
