2012 Lineup of Yamaha Watercraft and Sport Boats
The big news from Yamaha for the 2012 model year is the all new FX series watercraft which includes 4 new FX models.
The new FX is composed of a new hull and deck. Models that received this new hull are the FX SHO, FX Cruiser SHO FX, Cruiser HO and FX HO.
The cruiser models feature an industry first 3 passenger cruiser seat. The seating surface for each passenger is "stepped" much like theater seating. The new seating is 3" longer on the new seat as compared to the previous model year.
The new FX hull shape is a total of 140.2" in length. This is 7.5" longer than the previous model year which gives the new hull more rider comfort and provides for 40% more storage capacity than the 2011 FX. The width remains the same 48.4" as with the previous model year.
The new FX hull shape has a softer outside chine which gives a better lean-in characteristic in the turns and the new hull provides a softer ride. The new hull has a full keel for better straigt-line tracking. Despite the hull being longer, the newer hull actually has better 0-30 acceleration times and a slightly higher top speed.
The re-boarding step has been improved upon and is 7.5" deeper than the previous model year.
It also features a new stern storage compartment.
New for 2012 is Yamaha's Command Link which puts the mode and set buttons in a convenient position just above the glove box storage.
The ski also features a new neutral position on the reverse lever.
The FX models feature new hand grips which have an ergonomic shape and texture for driver comfort.
