Yamaha sure to rev your heart at 2016 Brisbane Boat Show

YAMAHA is particularly excited to exhibit the latest in outboard and rigging technology at this year’s Brisbane Boat Show.

Debuting for the first time in Queensland is Yamaha’s latest VMAX SHO models, with the new game-changing inline-four VF115 and VF150 joining the Australian range.  Also on debut in Brisbane is Yamaha’s new-addition F90 four-stroke, which is proving to be exceptionally popular with savvy boaters looking to extract the maximum performance from their 90hp-rated trailer boat.

On display across the show through Yamaha’s Queensland dealerships will be an array of Yamaha-powered locally built and imported boats. Powering a number of these boats is Yamaha’s all-new, lightweight F130A outboard, which will be positioned front and centre on the Yamaha display.

Complementing the new Yamaha outboards is a new selection of Yamaha-exclusive rigging. A new range of propellers dubbed the ‘Talon Series’ joins the exclusive Yamaha selection. This new propeller benefits from Yamaha’s exclusive shock and noise-reducing Shift Dampening System, which gives boaters a ‘clunk-free’ propeller option in either alloy or polished stainless steel. SDS propellers are now available on all Yamaha outboards from FT60 through to F350.

Yamaha is also exhibiting the all-new, all-in-one, high-definition, colour LCD gauge that relays real-time information from the outboard(s), fuel tanks and sensors, back to the helm. The new 6YC Command-Link Digital gauge is compatible with Yamaha’s complete EFI four-stroke range from F30-F350.

Yamaha WaveRunners is thrilled to showcase the latest in personal watercraft technology and a new fishing concept at the Brisbane Boat Show.

For 2016, Yamaha has reinvigorated the line-up with a new model, the reintroduction of the championship-winning FZR, a new TR-1 marine engine and some of the freshest colours and graphic combinations on the water. Yamaha’s complete range has something for everyone.

At one end is the legendary Superjet, a raw and engaging machine that has thrilled for decades. In the middle of the range are the VX and FX HO models, combining family friendly fun, versatility and features in an affordable package. While at the pointy end are Yamaha’s SVHO-powered models, featuring championship-winning powertrains and lightened hulls for unrivalled excitement. All VX and FX models feature Yamaha’s exclusive RiDE dual throttle control system, which makes manoeuvring watercraft safer and easier than ever before. Front and centre of the Yamaha WaveRunner stand is the new JetFish brand concept.

JetFish ties together a range of personal watercraft fishing ideas and innovations and will form the basis of Yamaha’s future activity in this area. Along with the new brand, a concept model will also be unveiled for the first time in Queensland.

Yamaha’s Time-Trial RiDE Challenge is returning to the Brisbane Boat Show. The Yamaha RiDE Challenge is a fast-paced WaveRunner simulator that gives show-goers the chance to race against the clock to win some cool Yamaha prizes.

This year also marks the 30th anniversary of Yamaha WaveRunners. To celebrate this milestone, a wide range of Yamaha WaveRunners will be on display, along with a selection of key historical models that made Yamaha the market leader it is today.

Yamaha’s award-winning TR-1 marine engine and SVHO marine engine cut-away will also be on display, giving enthusiasts a rare glimpse into what beats in the heart of Yamaha watercraft.
