Yamaha Introduces Affordable Line of WaveRunners at Baltimore Boat Show

The 2017 Baltimore Boat Show is packing the Baltimore Convention Center with 300 boats and the coolest gear for an epic summer on the water. One company looking to make waves this year is Yamaha WaterCraft, who comes to the show with an all-new line of EX WaveRunners, their first foray into the Rec-Lite segment.

Yamaha EX WaveRunner

One glance and you can see that there is nothing cheap about Yamaha’s affordable EX WaveRunner series. In fact, this inexpensive fun machine rolls down the same production lines as Yamaha top shelf models.

New for 2017 is the Yamaha EX WaveRunner Series is designed for buyers seeking an affordable entry to the sport of personal watercraft, but demand the durability, reliability, and quality that makes Yamaha one of the most respected brands ever.

Starting at $6,599, the EX Series includes the base EX model, the EX Sport, and the EX Deluxe. These models are shorter in length, lighter in weight, and more affordable than any three-person WaveRunner that Yamaha has offered in the past. 

However, the EX Series is manufactured with the same durable materials and high level of craftsmanship that Yamaha is renowned. The result is a fun, exciting Rec Lite WaveRunner that families can enjoy for years.

All three models are powered by Yamaha’s award-winning TR-1 three-cylinder marine engine that is 40 percent smaller in size, 20 percent lighter in weight and provides better fuel economy than Yamaha’s previous four-cylinder Yamaha MR-1 engine. Feeding this engine is a 13-gallon fuel tank that is nearly double the capacity of competitive models in the Rec Lite category. 

Under the waterline is an all-new hull design that is manufactured to precise tolerances. This lightweight SMC hull delivers excellent stability for two or three-up riding and towing, and best-in-class responsiveness and predictab

ility for thrilling one-up riding. 

There is not another hull in the Rec Lite category that offers as much fun, excitement, stability, and versatility.

On the handlebars, the EX Deluxe includes Yamaha’s RiDE system, the industry’s first dual handlebar throttle controls that deliver the utmost control moving forward or in reverse.

RiDE is the most intuitive driving experience on the water. Squeeze the right handlebar lever to go forward. Squeeze the left lever for 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.

Assembled in the United States with the same attention to detail and craftsmanship that Yamaha WaveRunners are renowned for, the new EX Series delivers affordability and durability in a new and exciting way.
