VX Cruiser HO 2018
Amazing power. Great features. The VX Cruiser HO.
Meet the HO, our premium VX Cruiser model. A smooth, powerful engine, plus Yamaha's revolutionary RiDE control system and a host of other advantages are blended together to create this stunning example of stylish performance with economy.
While many individual technical and practical features have played their part in making the VX models our most sought-after watercraft, it is their all-round versatility that has gained them such a loyal following.
Put simply, the VX Cruiser HO is the premium watercraft in this sector - and the only one that can deliver such a highly capable and luxurious on-water cruising experience with such affordability.
High Output 1812cc engine
Power delivery from the large displacement, High Output 1812cc engine is exhilarating – and the Hyper-Flow jet pump with its 3-blade impeller helps turn that power into electrifying acceleration. The Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) gives the smoothest possible power output and efficient, economical running, even on regular unleaded fuel.
Technology on the water - the pressure to move you
Exhilarating handling and exciting performance are a hallmark of the VX Cruiser HO and its outstanding bite and acceleration are made possible by a combination of the high-flow intake, the Hyper-Flow high-pressure jet pump and the stainless steel impeller, which runs within a precision-engineered housing.
RiDE system (Reverse with Intuitive Deceleration Electronics)
The revolutionary RiDE system transforms your riding pleasure, bringing a new feeling of confidence to every rider at every level. Simply pull the throttle lever on the right hand-grip to move forward and accelerate - pull the lever on the left grip to slow down or reverse. Yes, it's really that simple!
Lightweight NanoXcel® hull and deck
The hydrodynamic hull and deck are constructed from Yamaha's unique NanoXcel® – around 25% lighter than a conventional GRP – so the VX Cruiser HO offers extremely agile handling and optimum fuel efficiency. The hull and deck designs are also latest-generation, delivering space and stability, with extra storage and ride comfort.
Unique electronic systems for new levels of control
Yamaha's latest electronic systems - standard on the highly affordable VX Series - deliver a stunning mix of rider benefits and advantages. They include convenient electronic Reverse with traction control, Cruise Assist, No Wake mode ... and our industry-first security system with Low-RPM mode and remote control.
Special two-tone cruiser seat with dry storage
The ergonomically designed, precision-stitched, 2-piece seat is truly innovative. Perfect for sports riding and cruising with up to 3 people, its high comfort level will make you feel like it's been custom-made to fit you. What's more, there's a very handy dry storage area underneath the rear section.
Multi-function LCD instruments and large dual mirrors
Great-looking multi-function LCD instruments mounted in a stylish cockpit panel are not something you might expect on such a keenly priced watercraft. Nor might you expect large integral mirrors, but the VX Cruiser HO has them so you can keep an eye on what's going on behind - very valuable when towing a wakeboard or skier.
Extended rear platform and towing hook
The VX Cruiser HO will really appeal to watersport and cruising fans, with its comfortable three-person seat, extended rear platform with deep re-boarding step - and strong, practical tow hook. Comfortable, slip-resistant Hydro-Turf mats are another pleasure to look forward to after wakeboarding, skiing or swimming with friends.
