High Output Engine

This three-cylinder, 1049cc engine delivers 13% more horsepower than its predecessor, while delivering reductions in weight, size and fuel consumption. Combined with a 155mm jet pump, this engine delivers quick acceleration, higher top-end speeds, outstanding fuel economy and a more exciting ride.

VX Series Hull and Deck Design

The VX hull features a cutting-edge design with a deeper V-shape Keel, modified hull strakes and softer bow chines, delivering excellent stability for three-up riding and towing, and precise responsiveness and predictability for thrilling one-up riding. *Previous year model shown.

Large 93.2 Litre Storage

The VX WaveRunner series offers a combined 93.1 litres of storage space, including a watertight storage unit under the rear seat, a front hatch and glove compartment. This large storage capacity makes stowing away of safety equipment and the day’s essentials easy and convenient. *Previous year model shown.

70 Litre Fuel Capacity

Packed with 70 litres of fuel capacity, the VX WaveRunner series mean business. A big fuel tank capacity and exceptional efficiency from the TR-1 engine means you spend less time on land and more time on the water.

Open Looped Cooling System

All Yamaha WaveRunners utilise open loop cooling, which is used by 99% of marine manufacturers. Open loop systems have been proven to be the most effective, reliable and maintenance free solution for marine environments, which means lower cost of ownership and less time off the water.

Low RPM and Security Remote

Yamaha’s remote transmitter allows the rider to select Low RPM and Security modes. The Low RPM mode limits the top-end speed, improving fuel efficiency, while the Security mode disables the ignition, preventing unauthorised start-ups.  

Towing Hook

For additional on-water thrills and spills, a strong built-in tow hook allows for the secure towing of inflatable tubes, wake boarders or skiers. *Previous year model shown.

Three Year Warranty

All new WaveRunners purchased through an authorised Yamaha dealer comes with our industry leading Two + One Factory Warranty. With the confidence of the industry’s best factory backed warranty behind you, and Yamaha's legendary reliability, you can kick-back and enjoy your time on the water. *Recreational use only.

Lightweight NanoXcel Material

Yamaha's NanoXcel® ultra-lightweight, high-strength material reduces the weight of the hull, deck and liner by 25%, delivering improved acceleration, fuel economy, top-end speed and handling. The gem-like finish reduces surface tension on the water, for a more agile and responsive ride. Overseas model shown.

RiDE Dual Control System

Yamaha’s patented RiDE is the world's first dual throttle handlebar control system, that makes handling easy, fun and intuitive. Pull the right lever to accelerate and the left lever to decelerate and for reverse. Release both levers, or in any combination, and the system reacts with precise control.

Cruise Assist and No Wake Mode

Cruise Assist allows the rider to set a consistent engine speed, helping to reduce throttle fatigue, improve fuel efficiency and help make longer trips more comfortable. No Wake Mode caps the engine’s RPMs at an optimum idle speed (approx. 8 km/h), for travelling through no-wake zones and other restricted areas. 

Multi-Function Cockpit Display

The specially designed digital display meter provides a wide range of information in a clear and easy-to-read format. The tachometer keeps the rider informed about engine RPM, speed and gear selection, while fuel gauge and hour readouts keep track of available running time.

Three Person Cruiser Seat

The theatre-style three-person Cruiser Seat features double top stitching, designed to provide plush accommodations for all-day touring. Separation of the front and rear sections makes maintenance and access to under-seat storage easy.

Integrated Dual Mirrors

Incorporating Yamaha’s trademark compact and edgy design styling, the integrated mirrors not only look good but aid rider visual awareness and safety.

Extended Rear Platform

Roomy and comfortable, the extended rear platform is the ideal place for soaking up the surroundings, getting in and out of the water or simply doing nothing at all. The decking platform is fitted with Hydro-Turf Mats for optimum grip and a reboarding handle to make pulling yourself back on the craft easier.
