Buying a jet ski doesn’t have to be scoring the biggest and baddest of the bunch. Sometimes, especially when the purpose is for some family fun, it’s best to get one that’s not only affordable but also offers the benefits of power and reliability.

The Yamaha VX Sport is one of the best values you can buy, thanks to its ergonomic design, responsive engine, and proven fuel economy.

The VX Sport deck integrates the look and feel of a Yamaha luxury watercraft by creating a roomy cockpit for the operator. Yamaha’s exclusive high-compression molded hull is formed to make the best fit and finish in the industry. The jet ski is also spacious enough to accommodate up to three people, thanks to a long seat design that provides added space and more legroom for taller riders. The seat also has a large bolster for added comfort when riding with two or three people and the reboarding platform is wide and thickly padded. In addition to the spacious seating layout, the VX Sport also comes with a glove box, a large reverse lever, and a pair of side mirrors.

Powering the VX Sport is an impressive 1052cc, four-stroke Yamaha marine engine that is considered the most fuel efficient in the PWC industry. The engine’s high-performance capability, together with the efficiency fuel economy returns, makes the jet ski a responsive, low-maintenance, fuel efficient ride.

Overall, the Yamaha VX Sport is the ideal family jet ski. The craft can even be used as a great platform for skiing or wakeboarding, providing an absent shortage of fun activities.
