Supercharged High Output 1812cc engine

Yamaha FX SHO

Power delivery from the large displacement, supercharged High Output 1812cc engine is exhilarating – and the Hyper-Flow jet pump with its 3-blade impeller helps turn that power into electrifying acceleration. The Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) gives smooth power output and efficient, economical running, even on regular unleaded fuel.

Lightweight NanoXcel® hull and deck

The long, elegant hull and deck are constructed from Yamaha’s unique NanoXcel® – which is around 25% lighter than conventional materials – so the FX SHO offers extremely agile handling and optimum fuel efficiency. This latest-generation hull design also delivers more space and stability, with extra storage and even more ride comfort.

Electronic Throttle Control

Yamaha FX SHO

Yamaha’s sophisticated Electronic Throttle Control system will delight you with its ’intelligent’ features. You’ll use Cruise-Assist to set and maintain specific speeds, No Wake Mode to navigate with ease through low speed areas –and to help you manoeuvre more smoothly, Reverse Traction Control will prevent accidental over-revving in reverse.

Luxuriously practical features

From the unique tilt-adjustable steering to the comfortable two-piece seat –and from the large stern platform to the deep step and twin handles for re-boarding, the FX SHO sets the very highest standards for you to enjoy. The storage spaces, thoughtfully positioned around the craft, offer 40% more capacity than previous FX models.

Clear and stylish instruments

Yamaha FX SHO

Alongside its stylish, easy-to-read analogue speedo/tacho unit, the FX SHO has a digital multi-function display with centrally positioned buttons that allow fast access to readouts for speed, distance, fuel level, running hours and battery voltage. Automatic low fuel, low oil pressure and overheating alerts keep you informed too.

Remote security with Low-RPM Mode™

This innovative system is an industry-first for Yamaha. One click on the remote transmitter button engages a special "L" mode (Low RPM) to limit top speed –ideal for controlled manoeuvring. For your security and peace of mind, pushing
a second button disables the ignition, preventing an accidental start-up –or an unauthorised joyride.
