Launch and Cornering Control
An industry-first Auto Trim function includes Cornering Control, which automatically shifts the trim into the bow down position when decelerating for tighter cornering and a racy feel, and Launch Control, which automatically shifts the trim down to prevent bow rise when accelerating quickly.
Open Loop 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 less money and less time off the water.
All GP models come with a multi-mount base allowing you to connect action cameras, fish-finders and other devices, using third-party (purchased separately) multi-mount connection systems.
Not all personal watercraft are created equal. Find out why Yamaha WaveRunners continue to lead the personal watercraft industry when it comes to legendary reliability, quality, durability and resale value.
Yamaha's cutting-edge NanoXcel2 ultra-lightweight hulls and decks are 18% lighter than the original NanoXcel®. This advanced material compound delivers exceptional performance properties resulting in significant improvements in acceleration, top-end speed, fuel economy, and handling.
Narrow and Deeper Ergonomics
The deck design delivers awesome rider ergonomics with deep and wide footwells, and the seat design provides improved knee grip and overall comfort, especially when cornering. *Previous year model shown
The race designed intake grate and jet pump allows less turbulent water to flow through the jet pump. The result is better acceleration and less cavitation in choppy water conditions. *GP1800R SVHO model shown
Adaptable Steering System
Working closely with our pro riders we developed tilt-adjustable race-inspired, motocross style handlebars. You can keep them low for tight circuits or high for stand up and long distance riding.
Self Draining Footwells
The self-draining footwells prevent water pooling, including while in storage.
1.8L Naturally Aspirated HO Engine, 155mm pump
The four-cylinder, 1812cc High Output Yamaha engine and 155mm high-pressure jet pump, deliver the largest water displacement of any craft in its class. This naturally aspirated engine delivers race performance acceleration, high-end speeds, outstanding fuel economy, low noise and reduced emissions.
All GP1800R models come with Yamaha’s factory-installed, custom integrated Bluetooth marine audio system, which includes twin, powerful 4.5-inch fully waterproof marine speakers, integrated 2 channel (50 watts per channel) amplifier, easy access control pad and an integrated low-voltage regulator to protect the battery.
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 overall safety.
4.3" Connext® Helm Control
All GP1800R models come with Yamaha’s 4.3” Connext® helm control with a multi-color LCD display. An easily accessible touchpad control provides convenient access to the many functions including a PIN code security system and DRIVE® Control that allows the owner to set top speed increments and acceleration settings from normal to slow.
RiDE Dual Throttle Control System
Yamaha’s patented RiDETM 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. Pull both levers in any combination for enhanced handling, smooth deceleration and excellent control.
Three Person Sport Seat
The narrow race inspired two-piece, two-tone seat is ergonomically designed, textured and bolstered for grip, speed and comfort, suitable for recreational riding and racing. The seat comfortably seats three people. Separation of the front and rear sections makes maintenance and access to under-seat storage easy.
Large Rear Platform
Roomy and comfortable, the large 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 custom cut Hydro-Turf mats for optimum looks, grip and comfort.
The GP1800R includes twin reboarding handles and an extra-deep ergonomically designed soft-touch reboarding step, making climbing back on board extra easy and safe.
For additional on-water thrills and spills, the GP1800R HO comes with a strong tow hook which allows the secure towing of inflatable tubes, wake boarders or skiers.
Large Storage Capacity
The bow, glovebox, and under seat storage capacity has increased by 15% on previous generation models, providing 107 litres of useable space. The bow compartment is now easier to access and has a dedicated area for Yamaha's cooler bag. The water-resistant glove box and under seat storage compartments include larger openings for easier access and improved usability. *Previous year model shown
