The race to holeshot domination, raw torque and big power on the water belongs to the FZS. Yamaha’s 1.8L supercharged, Super Vortex High Output Yamaha Marine engine delivers more power and torque than any other WaveRunner personal watercraft in history. The ultra-lightweight hull and deck is engineered with nanotechnology for strength, durability and an exciting, agile ride. It’s up to 70 pounds lighter than traditional hulls for precision edge-to-edge handling in tight turns. Stylized Hydro-Turf® mats and rally car inspired gauges reflect its championship racing heritage. The FZS also features a reboarding ladder, a sport textured seat and a convenient tow hook.

Since its debut, the Yamaha FZ series completely transformed personal watercraft racing, ushering in a new era of super high-performance matched with lightweight components. In its first year in production, Yamaha FZs won National and World Championships and that success has continued every year since.
Yamaha extends its lead in the high-performance arena with the Super Vortex High Output marine engine; the most powerful engine ever in a Yamaha WaveRunner® that delivers race-ready performance right out of the box.
The SVHO marine engine increases power and torque by 20 percent compared to the Yamaha SHO® engine. To do that, Yamaha:
Under the waterline, the FZ models now come with a larger 160mm eight-vane pump that delivers competition level thrust never seen before on a production watercraft from Yamaha. Complementing this high-performance, high-volume pump is a matching high-performance intake grate that maximizes the pump’s potential while delivering unrivaled hookup in all water conditions. Additional enhancements to the hull include new high-performance sponsons that provide exact handling.
The FZ Series hull and deck is made of NanoXcel®, the Yamaha-only, nano-tech engineered material that shaves more than 70 pounds off the total weight of the unit while adding to the overall strength. By eliminating the unwanted fat that slows down competing models, Yamaha delivers an amazing power to weight ratio that offers “modified-like” performance and handling in a stock boat. The aftermarket potential for furthering unlocking the capabilities of this package is endless.
And of course, the FZ models look every bit the high-performance watercraft they are with a bolder look topped off with new seat textures, stylized Hydro-Turf mats, and deep rally car inspired gauges. The profile and overall design of the FZs scream one thing and that is performance.
