Check out the 2017 Wave Runner line from Yamaha

All New EX and EX DeLuxe

The brief was straightforward: Blend together all the advanced technology, superior performance and handling, exclusive innovations and sheer reliability for which WaveRunners are renowned
the world over. But in a genuinely more affordable 3-seater package than has ever been seen before.

The result, Yamaha's exciting new EX Series - A real game-changer, set to introduce a whole new generation of riders and their families to the joy of WaveRunner. Opening up an exhilarating new
world of fun and enjoyment.

Powered by Yamaha's award-winning TR-1 engine

The EX models are powered by Yamaha's award-winning TR-1, 3-cylinder marine engine. Despite its punchy torque and impressive power, this plucky motor is 40% smaller, 20% lighter, and
provides better fuel economy than the previous 4-cylinder Yamaha MR-1 engine. What's more, its 50L fuel tank is nearly double the capacity of competitive models in this category.

Advanced Throttle Control on the EX DeLuxe - that's RiDE®

The EX DeLuxe features Yamaha's unique and exclusive RiDE® system, with the industry's first dual handlebar throttle levers that deliver new levels of precision and control, whether you're moving
forwards, in reverse - or just having fun carving some turns. The new EX Series - the best has never been this affordable - until now. (In fact, it's good to know that the remarkable, world-leading RiDE® system is now a standard feature on all WaveRunner models, except the EX and SuperJet.)

The Legend Returns

Ultra-high-performance fun - the new GP1800 Over many years, Yamaha's GP models - the GP1200 and GP1300R - forged an unbeatable reputation among serious racers the world over. This magnificent heritage is now exploited and thrillingly re-born in the shape of a brand new high-performance model, the GP 1800.

The answer to any performance enthusiast's prayer, it's a great-looking, super-powerful machine with a strong, agile hull and the ability to respond to the rider's every command precisely and predictably.

 Powered by the ultra-performance Yamaha SVHO® marine engine.
 Yamaha super-lightweight NanoXcel2™ hull and deck material.
