The supercharged YamahaGP1800R SVHO and naturally-aspirated GP1800R HO stand out from the crowd with the industry’s first automatic trim system featuring Cornering Control and Launch Control.Cornering Control automatically adjusts the trim, delivering extra grip as the rider decelerates for tighter cornering. It then automatically selects the optimal trim setting to keep the craft level. Launch Control automatically shifts the trim down to prevent bow rise when accelerating quickly. This incredible technology offers exceptional levels of handling and performance riding, for racers and recreational riders alike.

The GP1800R also features an intake grate and jet pump, specifically designed for better hook-up and quicker acceleration. Weight distribution has also been optimised to enhance the GPs’ nimble handling and to always deliver ultimate performance.

The SuperJet ®is a revolutionary machine with Yamaha’s racing DNA intertwined from the outset. The streamlined, lightweight SuperJet ®delivers an adrenaline-fuelling combination of blistering speed and acceleration thanks to the fantastically lightweight design. It isn’t just straight-line speed that makes the SuperJet ®stand out. It also offers unparalleled manoeuvrability to go with utter exhilaration.

For riders not wanting to go all out right away, L-MODE ®reduces engine performance to around35 knots to build confidence in novice riders. A wider and more stable hull makes it ideal for recreation, whilst the spring-assisted steering pole and handlebar lead the rider into a comfortable lean-forward position, for when you’re ready for super-fast riding and turning. At just 2.5m in length; it easily fits into the back of a light van or large SUV and at 170kg it’s lightweight, making it very simple to launch and recover. This also makes it ideal for storage on the deck of a larger yacht. 

Clean the Sea

Now entering its third year, Yamaha Motor’s inspiring Clean the Sea projects continue to bring people with the passion for nature ever closer, focusing on diverse marine environments that unite the unique love for the big blue.

Our Clean the Sea projects are diverse and wide spread; from supporting record-breaking voyages collecting marine debris, to more local initiatives focusing on raising awareness and promoting recycling.

Inner city rivers are often most susceptible to the negative impacts of pollution in the water.Since 2017, Yamaha Motor Portugal has run initiatives which clear debris from the Tagus river in central Lisbon, while at the same time educating less fortunate teenagers in the area on the benefits of recycling and marine preservation.

In 2021, Simone Zignoli highlighted the importance of having a minimal impact on the environment when on an Italian adventure, aboard his FX WaveRunner. Zignoli completely immersed himself in Sardinian nature, ensuring he left no negative impact on the environment around him by living off only what was growing locally.

In Scandinavia, since 2021, Ocean Crusaders have been supported by Yamaha Outboard power to help clean up operations and remove plastics from the waters around Sweden.

Blue4Green is an initiative launched and run in Spain which litter picks in coves, secluded bays and areas which are unreachable on foot and using larger marine vessels. Yamaha Motor started working with Lucas del Paso in 2022, he and his team launched Blue4Green following a world record breaking Personal Watercraft journey which saw him cover over 3,500km in eight months, collecting marine debris all the way.

The Clean the Sea projects reflect our commitment to support a host of activities across Europe to preserve the marine environment for tomorrow. 

Supporting Ultimate Surfing

Big wave surfing sees some of the world’s best surfers in a life-long pursuit of huge waves, some reaching 100ft (30m) in height as they break on the shores of the Atlantic coast. A sport reserved for only the best and bravest waterman and women in the world, paired with the finest equipment. Recent years have seen the world of big wave surfing grow in popularity, both for spectators and participants, and much of this is down to the technological and engineering innovations of Yamaha WaveRunners.

Yamaha WaveRunners have been a fundamental part of the evolution in big wave surfing in Nazare, Portugal and beyond. Waves which were once unthinkable to surf are now possible for these elite, world-class athletes. WaveRunner performance, stability and reliability have all been key factors in the growth of the sport, allowing pilots to navigate the surfers in the safest way possible. This reputation and innovation has maintained Yamaha position as the unit of choice for the rising stars in the sport.

Nic von Rupp is a professional big wave surfer from Sintra, Portugal and a Yamaha Motor ambassador. Having won many big wave competitions during his career, in November 2020, hessurfed some of the biggest waves ever ridden at the legendary Nazaré Beach, where waves can reach a phenomenal 30 meters high.

In his quest to become the world’s best big-wave surfer Nic trains intensively, working incredibly hard with his team to achieve peak performance and be able to tackle nature at its fullest. With that level of dedication and so much at stake, he knows he needs the best equipment available.And for him, when it comes to a personal watercraft to get him into and out of the biggest waves – and pick him up reliably when he disappears under all that crushing water – it has to beYamaha, which he’s used for much of his career.

Currently, Nic uses the FX SVHO for his adventures amongst waves that can be up to eight stories high, relying on the FX SVHO to be super stable in some of the world’s most extreme conditions, reliable, and powerful enough to outrun the surf.

At Yamaha Motor we believe in people with big dreams and aspirations. This is why the relationship with Nic is so strong. Nic personifies the commitment which Yamaha Motor puts into every product, as well as the drive to push boundaries and maintain greatness. We develop new technologies to make these aspirations a reality, and to challenge the impossible.
