    FX-SHO crate dimensions

    can anyone tell me what the crate dimensions are that the FX-SHO's come in from the factory? I want to ship some to australia.

    I realise they arent in the dealerships yet but dont they have basically the same hull as some other Yamaha PWC's?

    Who would be a good Yamaha Dealer in Los Angeles to contact for this purchase?

    thanks, mark.

    I would say whatever the current fx's come in since they are the exact same size.

    it depends... i havent actually measured an 08 crate even tho i have a few in stock, but some of the skis came flat in the crate... whereas all the other years the skis always came on edge at a diagonal to make the crate narrower. some of the 08s i got are flat, and some are on edge, not sure on the crate dimensions. all it's gonna take is 1-2" difference and it'll screw up alot

    if the skis are up on edge in the crate, then they are less than 48" wide bc you can fit two yamaha crates side-by-side in a sea-container... so essentially you can fit 12 Yamaha watercraft crates in a sea container... BUT if they are changing the crates at all to let the skis sit flat then they will probably be wider

    seadoos and yamahas are too wide so you can only get 6 skis in each container.

    i just got this from OTD yamaha in Los Angeles:

    2007 FX1100 HO crate size is:
    w-45
    h-49
    L-137

    does that sound right?

    yes, that's accurate...

    but like i said, i have not gotten a chance to measure a 2008 crate, but some of the units came packages differently and i dont know if they changed the crate dimensions or not to accomodate them.

    unless u r looking at buying a bunch of leftover 07 models, then yes 100% they are those dimensions and u could fit a bunch of them (12) in a sea container
