The benchmark for luxury watercrafts has been raised and if competitors aren’t careful, the Yamaha FX Cruiser SHO has the capacity to wipe away the field. Fully-featured, comfortable and roomy, the all-new FX Cruiser SHO provides an improved riding experience aboard a bold and revolutionary new platform.

Of the plethora of features tacked into the FX Cruiser, Yamaha’s lightweight NanoXcel hull stands out. For the 2011 model, the hull is longer and offers better handling to deliver the most stable ride in the industry. Riders will also enjoy a new wrinkle to the FX Cruiser in the form of the first true three-person Cruiser seat that delivers the industry’s only theater-style seating. An adjustable steering and adjustable trim control also allows the rider to dial in the ride of the FX Cruiser to suit their preferences while a retractable reboarding ladder and an integrated beverage holder and glovebox round out all the impressive features of the watercraft.

In terms of the engine, the FX Cruiser boasts of a supercharged 1.8-liter Yamaha Super High Output marine engine. The powertrain comes with an advanced electronic control system to create a machine that excites the imagination, opening up a new world of possibilities for adventure and fun. Two unique engine features of the FX Cruiser include Cruise Assist - a Yamaha-exclusive feature that reduces throttle fatigue, improves
towing capability, and can extend the range of touring - and No Wake Mode - which sets the engine to optimum no wake speed.

As the most award winning personal watercraft in history, the FX Cruiser SHO WaveRunner is the personification of a luxury watercraft, one that provides everything a rider needs to enjoy the high seas in style.
