The embargo has lifted, so time to unveil some more new models for 2012…this time the makeover to Yamaha’s popular FX series.
If you check out the video you’ll notice there have been a lot of tweaks to the FX series, from looks to comfort, but what truly impressed me the most was this boat’s newfound handling. Sure, it always was a solid boat, but previously it tended to feel a little bit funny in corners as the boat fell off its pad and onto the chine…and back. No more. In calm water I was able to literally keep the throttle pinned, while carving aggressive, yet predictable corners literally inches away from a moving photo boat.
In short, this is a hull that gives its rider a lot of confidence.
Check out the video. My review of the FX models will soon be up on personalwatercraft.com and in the next issue of Boating Magazine.
