Manufacturer Info



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.
