FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NASSAU, THE BAHAMAS AUGUST 14, 2019 Yamaha WaterCraft, a division of the Yamaha U.S Marine Business Unit, today unveiled its 2020 Boats and WaveRunner® product lines that include a new premium 19-foot runabout boat, a more powerful 19-foot center console boat, a surf accessory package for Yamaha’s 19-foot models, new custom-designed speaker kits and storage solutions for WaveRunners®, and bold new colors and graphics throughout.

The products were announced at the company’s annual national dealer meeting held in Nassau, Bahamas. More than 1,200 Yamaha powersports and marine retailer representatives attended the three-day event.  

“Coming off a banner sales year that saw us sell out of most models, these new products elevate our line even further and offer new accessories and aftermarket solutions that create all new ways for our customers to use and enjoy their Boat or WaveRunner,” said Bryan Seti, general manager of Yamaha’s Watercraft Group.

New Yamaha 195S

The Yamaha 195S is a brand new model based on the recently-updated 19-foot hull and deck introduced for 2019. This premium model features a host of new appointments including MarineMat flooring, a co- captain’s chair, docking lights, 7” Connext® with maps, Wet Sounds™ speaker package and a custom CNC name plate on the 195S tower structure.

New Yamaha 195FSH®

The Yamaha 195FSH comes with a single, supercharged Yamaha 1.8L SVHO marine engine, putting out comparable performance to the SX and AR195. 0-30 mph acceleration is achieved in under 6 seconds and the boat has a top speed of 50 mph.

In addition, the new 195FSH models have a new MarineMat flooring kit, upgraded switch panels, steering wheel knob, rod and cup holder combo on the bow and a brand new electric raw water wash down pump with a higher PSI than the previous Jet Wash® system.

New Yamaha Wakebooster Surf Accessory Package for 19-foot Yamaha Boats

Also for 2020, the award winning Yamaha WakeBooster™ is now available for our 19-foot boats including FSH models, opening up the ability to wakesurf behind all new models in the lineup. The Yamaha WakeBooster will come in a new package that also includes a custom ballast solution for maximizing the surf wake.

With the extra ballast and the Yamaha WakeBooster attached, the wake behind our 19-foot boats is super impressive and easy to ride. With this addition, every single boat in the Yamaha line is very surfable even for beginner and intermediate level riders.

Yamaha Exclusive WaveRunner Speaker Package

For 2020, Yamaha is introducing new speaker packages that are exclusive, and custom-designed for Yamaha WaveRunners. 

These speaker kits come in two variations, one for the EX®/VX® Series models, and a larger set for the FX® Series. The speaker sets feature high quality sound and increased wattage output. In addition, the playtime battery life is double.

The EX/VX Series marine speakers are affixed to the WaveRunner using standardized RAM® mounts. The FX Series marine speakers feature a new Yamaha-exclusive attachment system for an integrated appearance. 

The Yamaha speaker kits (MSRP $349 and $399) are available exclusively through Yamaha powersports and marine dealers.

New Innovative Storage Solutions for VX and EX Series WaveRunners

Designed for the more adventurous VX WaveRunner owner who enjoys extended cruises or wants to fish from their PWC, Yamaha is now offering a unique storage solution that is compression-molded for added ruggedness and versatility, but inside is actually a removable soft case that can serve as an insulated cooler with outstanding thermal properties.

In addition, you can also use it for a fishing setup with rod holders and tackle storage to create a fully fishing capable WaveRunner.

For the EX Series WaveRunners, a new expanded EX waterproof bow storage replaces the existing storage tray with a larger storage bag that takes full advantage of the interior space. There is also a custom styled deck lid storage that is compression molded for an integrated look as well as a new stern storage bag.
