Yamaha Jet Skis

Why we only rent the best!

With their introduction of the world's first ever sit down personal watercraft in 1986, Yamaha waverunners have revolutionised water sports ever since. Constant, new and innovative technology has led Yamaha jet skis to be the number one waverunner brand around the globe. Learn what makes these jet skis better than any other.

Firstly, Yamaha 4 stroke engines have proven to last longer with fewer repairs than competitors. Although Yamaha tends to be more expensive than some competitors, the cost saved in maintenance reduces the difference. If you are interested in doing your own maintenance, Yamaha engines are simple to work on. New, and more efficient engines are being invented every year, each being more powerful and smaller than the product before it. The constant innovation results in quicker acceleration and higher top-end speeds. Yamaha waverunners use open loop cooling systems. The system works by pulling water from around the jet ski, and using it to cool the engine. Riders enjoy the simplicity of open loop cooling, because no other products are needed, just the water around you. The system needs little to no maintenance as well, so owners can focus on having fun rather than keeping their jet ski maintained. Yamaha engines are also known for being fuel efficient which does less damage to the environment, and demands less expenses. And of course, nobody wants to stop the fun to refuel.

Yamaha’s hull and deck technology has reshaped the entire waverunner industry. Their engineers have innovated at the microscopic level using nano- clay plus glass microbubbles to create a new, stronger resin system that uses less material. The glass microbubbles used in Yamaha waverunners are smaller and stronger than other filler materials, contributing to the strength, rigidity and light weight of the new hulls and decks. As a result, Yamaha hulls and decks are the lightest in the industry while maintaining the strength and durability they’ve come to be recognized for. Performance metrics associated with the new hulls include increased acceleration and top speed, better fuel economy, more responsiveness and enhanced handling. Yamaha continues to raise the bar on competition hulls and the pursuit of next level nano-engineered design.

The VX is one of Yamaha’s best models. The VX High Output is the most deluxe VX model offered to date featuring the new Yamaha TR-1 HO engine along with special color and graphics, four pull-up cleats, a ski tow eye, enhanced 3D Yamaha logo and a 12 volt plug for electronics. On the handlebars, the VX High Output includes Yamaha’s premium Cruise Assist for setting and holding a consistent speed, Yamaha’s dual handlebar throttle delivers the utmost control moving forward or in reverse. The right handlebar lever is forward. The left is reverse. At speed, the left handlebar lever will also slow you down. Release both right and left levers and the watercraft is in neutral. No shifting. No gears. The only thing to think about is how much fun it is to ride.

Affordability is in, but not at the expense of fun. The 2018 Yamaha EX Sport offers both, enticing newcomers with a low price tag while offering a ride that, while great for beginners, won’t bore experienced riders. With affordability in mind, the EX Sport is designed with compact and easy maintenance parts. However, with its low price, Yamaha refused to compromise on details the company deems crucial to the WaveRunner experience. The size for instance, is smaller than most Yamaha waverunners. The craft weighs in at only 584 pounds, but you can still ride comfortably with up to three passengers, even if that third passenger is an adult (capacity is 529 pounds). That smaller size also doesn’t come at the expense of stability. The hull was based off the VX, and stability remains top notch, whether in calm conditions or rough. With a top speed of about 50 mph. The EX also boasts more fuel capacity (13.2 gallons). That definitely gives the Ex more than enough range to enjoy the water craft without worrying about refueling.

The 2018 Yamaha EX Deluxe adds some of the brand’s latest innovations from their older designs. The dual-throttle system, used in the VX, is designed to both take the stress out of close-quarters maneuvering while adding the ability to rapidly decelerate from speed. The model is light and agile and equipped with a performance-style hull that can handle a wide variety of water conditions. The entire hull and deck is made from a durable and scratch resistant resin to keep it’s athletic appearance.

Yamaha waverunners offer a variety of technologies equipped in their individual designs, but even with the differences, each watercraft performs with perfection. The Yamaha engines allow for thinner, more agile crafts, while maintaining their rapid speeds. So, when debating which jet ski is best for your water sport activities, know that Yamaha wave runners are number one in the world for good reason.
