When it comes to boats, Yamaha is usually considered a benchmark in its class and there is no wonder why as its products are modern, reliable and comfortable.

One of the most wanted boats in Yamaha’s lineup is the 242 Limited S. Compared to the previous models, the 2011 version features a series of improvements, the most important one being the new deck and hull design. Thanks to the new design the seating area at the bow is wider and longer than ever before offering an improved level of comfort.

The 2011 Yamaha 242 Limited is propelled by two twin 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, 16-valve High Output Yamaha Marine engines with a displacement of 1812cc (each). The engines are fed by a 50.2 gallons fuel tank that offers a fairly good range.

Among the standard features available for the 242 Limited S you’ll find aluminum watersports tower with built-in speakers and cabin lights, a convertible lounge seat and bow docking lights.

Hit the jump for more information on the 2011 YAMAHA 242 Limited S.
