Theatre Style Cruiser Seat

The luxury, theatre-style seat is designed to provide plush accommodations for all-day riding, for up to three persons. The narrower seat profile is ergonomically designed, textured and bolstered for improved grip and comfort. Separation of the front and rear sections makes maintenance and access to under-seat storage easy. Overseas model colour shown.

2 Handy Pull-Up Cleats

Two pull-up cleats are located on either side of the craft, making it easy to secure the craft to docks, pontoons or other water vessels.

Hull and Deck

The deck design delivers improved ergonomics with deeper, wider, self-draining footwells and a seat profile that is 4 centimetres narrower than previous models. This seat design improves knee grip and overall comfort, especially for smaller size riders.

Multi-Mount System

The multi-mount system makes it easy to affix your favourite digital accessories, such as phone, action camera, GPS, fish finder or speakers. Mounts sold separately. Overseas colour model shown.

Connext® Helm Control

The VX Series, features modern dash instrumentation including Yamaha’s 4.3” Connext Helm Control with a multi-colour LCD display. A touchpad control that is mounted next to the steering column provides convenient access to the Connext system’s many functions.  These include a PIN code security system that eliminates the need for an external remote fob, and DRIVE Control that allows you to set top speeds at different increments along with other speed settings.

Race Performance

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. *Prior year colour shown.

Self Draining Footwells

Lightweight NanoXcel Material

Yamaha's NanoXcel® lightweight 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. 

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 Hydro-Turf mats for optimum looks, grip and comfort.

Reboarding Step

The VX Cruiser HO includes twin reboarding handles and an extra-deep ergonomically designed soft-touch reboarding step, making climbing back on board extra easy and safe.

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.

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.

Tow Hook
