    2013 Yamaha FX HO

    Hello and thank you in advance for your imput and personal experience. So my last ski was a 2007 sea doo gtx 155, i never had any problems out of it and I had a great time with it.. I'm now lookig at a 2013 Yamaha FX HO, due to friends advice about the 1.8L and the reliability of the Yamaha.
    Can you share your personal experiences and if you recently purchased one, what whas your out the door price and what was included in the price (trailer, 1-2-3 year warranry, service plan, vest, etc.
    And if I missed something, feel free to comment and share.
    Thank you

    I just bought a pair about a month ago. It was not an easy process!

    I ended up going about 230 miles out of town to get my Triton Elite trailer for $1995 + $35 documentation fee.

    And for the FX HOs, I ended up going about 1,000 miles away for the best deal--closer for you--in Hickory, NC. They were $11,800 each with 5 year Y.E.S. warranty included. Oh, and they gave me a pair of whistles.

    Purchased a 2012 fx sho cruiser 11,999 + 600 ttl ect so $12600 otd. Triton elite aluminum $1800+ ttl(not sure how much ttl). Dealer didn't give me anything but ski. Got fire extinguisher, lanyard (+-$50). Dealer wanted $1200 for 5 year yes. Got it later for 600+ tax(you have a year), cover $210. So basically +_ 15k. Bank wanted trailer in loan so they can repo it. I paid cash for trailer but not ski. So bank owns both for now. I got my ski when it was cold!!! I thought I could get a better price then. Supply vs demand!!! Region you live. How many dealers in your area. I drove 250 miles one way to get my ski. None in my area... They were all sold out...
    Just to let you know. Smile on me and the misses....priceless!!!

    Good luck on your ski...

    Hello and thank you all for sharing your experiences and advice, it played a big roll on my decision on my purchase of a 2013 yamaha fx ho.
    This is a fun ski to ride with a great comfortable ride and great power.
    I have put 4.5 hrs just this past long weekend and I plan on riding many local lakes.
    Thank you again and congrats on your new ski.

    Just got back from making a bimini run on mine. I am amazed at how well these things are built! All the way across it sounded like I was on the Long Beach to Catalina race. Still cranks fine every time, still got great fuel mileage. 13 gallons to get there, have not filled since I got back.
