Finding The Perfect Match

Yamaha Motor is dedicated to aligning with our customers’ motivations. We have structured our products into user-friendly segments so that customers feel completely at ease navigating our range.


For the thrill of skimming over the waves or heading down the coast to a secluded beach for a day’s swimming, our Cruising range enables riders to go further and experience greater adventures in more comfort and with all the latest technology.

The range of colours available suits a variety of tastes, from the elegant shades of the new FX Cruiser SVHO in Dusty Navy to its second-year released Limited Edition in Black Solid with fresh new dark orange matte details. Alternatively, customers can choose the striking FX SVHO, the sporty FX Cruiser HO in Light Grey Metallic or the FX HO and VX models in a stunning Pure White Solid.

Enhancements include the increased engine displacement for all HO models and the new Connext® seven-inch colour touch screen with Enhanced Drive Modes across all FX models. Optimising user experience and usability on the water is even easier with the steering tilt adjustment providing an extra level of comfort while riding seated or standing.


Our Sport segment is all about high-end performance and is designed for race-inspired riders looking to hit that perfect line and experience the adrenaline rush of acceleration at its peak. Featuring new dynamic colour schemes, including the vibrant GP SVHO in Deep Purplish Blue Metallic and the sleek GP HO in Black Solid with Torch Red Metallic hull and Matte Bluish White details, the performance look and feel are synonymous with this personal watercraft range. Racing-inspired graphics, details and seats complete the experience. Moreover, the HO model has the same power boost upgrade as the Cruising range.

The legendary SuperJet continues unchanged as a thrilling staple of the Sport segment, combining power, agility and exhilarating performance for water sports enthusiasts.


Whether relaxing at the beach in the summertime or enjoying a lazy day at the lake, riders can’t resist the Recreation segment when it comes to a thrilling experience on the water.

The JetBlaster has been restyled with a brand new Deep Purplish Blue Metallic look with exquisite white details sharing the same performance colour trend as the GP SVHO. With foot chocks enabling near-instant mastery of tricks, flicks and stunts, enhanced electric trim for ease of control, nimble handling with the RiDE® technology, a TR-1® High Output engine and excellent power-to-weight performance, this is the perfect partner for serious fun.


Since 1986, Yamaha Motor has been dedicated to providing accessible fun on the water for all. That is why there is a personal watercraft for everyone in the WaveRunner range, with each product uniquely designed for various riding styles and preferences, embodying the reliability and technical innovation you would expect from Yamaha Motor.


Technology boosting up the new WaveRunner range

The New HO Marine Engine

Power and performance are at the heart of the WaveRunner lineup, featuring the brand new Yamaha’s High Output (HO) marine engine. The HO engine delivers awe-inspiring power and industry-leading top speeds, allowing riders to experience the ultimate adrenaline rush on the water. Find it on the GP HO, FX Cruiser HO, FX HO and VX Cruiser HO.

Upgrades To The Connext® Touch Screen Display

All the FX models now feature the brand-new seven-inch touch screen Connext® display with Security and Enhanced Drive Control Modes, including Economy, Towing, Performance, Comfort and Customisable Drive Modes. This interactive hub offers seamless access to navigation, entertainment and vital watercraft information, enhancing convenience and connectivity during every ride. Furthermore, the restyled user interface shows the predefined intuitive drive mode features in a fresh colour scheme and provides information about the WaveRunner’s behaviour, such as the adaptive auto trim or acceleration sensitivity.

Take Control With The RiDE® Dual Throttle Control System

Yamaha’s proprietary award-winning RiDE® system continues to deliver exciting riding experiences, and comes as standard across the lineup, excluding the SuperJet. This provides intuitive and effortless control of the watercraft. With forward and reverse functionality at their fingertips, riders can easily manoeuvre and navigate through tight spaces for trouble-free docking and beaching.


A New Concept: Run The Water

The new Yamaha WaveRunners are perfectly aligned with our ‘Run The Water’ concept motto, designed to encourage riders to explore a different side of the water and go beyond the ordinary to experience something new. The motto aims to capture the WaveRunner community’s pride of ownership as well.

‘Run The Water’ will make its European premiere alongside the GP HO, FX Cruiser HO and VX Cruiser HO in the new Yamaha WaveRunner launch video.
