New for 2017 is the Yamaha FX Limited SVHO that is designed for the active watersports family who is looking for the most complete package in a luxury performance watercraft.
Not only does the FX Limited come with an exclusive trim level that includes special color and graphics, an enhanced Yamaha logo, and a 12V plug for electronics, the FX Limited also includes a color matched tube and tow rope, a tube inflator, a tube holder, and a solar battery charger.
Featuring the Yamaha Super Vortex High Output Marine Engine
The heart of the FX Limited is the Yamaha Super Vortex High Output marine engine that delivers the most power and torque in the Yamaha WaveRunner line. This ultraperformance Yamaha engine is the same motor featured in Yamaha’s new GP1800 race-performance model.
Under the waterline, the SVHO engine is matched with a 160mm eight-vane pump for maximum thrust volume and paired it with a high-performance top loader intake grate to optimize its efficiency and hookup in rough water.
The hull and deck is made of NanoXcel 2, the Yamaha-only, nanotech-engineered material that shaves more than 70 pounds off the total weight of the unit compared to SMC fiberglass.
The end result is an engine and driveline that produces extraordinary power and thrust in an extremely lightweight package, delivering a superior power to weight ratio.
Yamaha’s FX models are the best-selling models in luxury performance category for good reason. These WaveRunners deliver the comfort and luxury features that buyers value most.

Advanced Throttle Control Features
On the handlebars, the FX Limited includes Yamaha’s award-winning 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.
The new FX Limited SVHO WaveRunner comes with everything active families need for a full day of fun on the water. For the buyer that wants it all, the new FX Limited is the one and only choice.
