Yamaha JetblasterYamaha Motor Canada’s Marine Division unveiled an all-new WaveRunner for the freestyle crowd, a refined FX® WaveRunner® Series with ground-breaking technology, and an innovative accessory platform that expands the versatility of FX WaveRunner models.

“With more people on the water than ever before and using WaveRunners for everything from all-day touring adventures to watersports, fishing and lounging, we want to make sure everyone can find a watercraft that suits their needs,” said Chris Hawkins, Director of Marine Sales for Yamaha Motor Canada. “The 2022 lineup of WaveRunners and related accessories provide riders with the power and ability to develop their passion for fun on the water.”

The all-new JetBlaster® revolutionizes how you can ride a sit-down watercraft, while the new FX Series pushes the bounds of luxury, tech and performance. Yamaha’s all-new RecDeck™ offers a new level of customization for anything customers can dream of doing on the water.

All-New JetBlaster WaveRunner – Born to Cause a Little Chaos

The fun and exciting JetBlaster delivers a playful, freestyle riding experience like no other watercraft before it. The JetBlaster is the newest addition to Yamaha's youthful Freestyle Series, which also includes the four-stroke powered SuperJet® stand-up WaveRunner.

The JetBlaster's taller, wider handlebars allow the rider to have more leverage over the bars, and new performance grips reduce hand slippage and fatigue. The addition of foot chocks placed where the footwells meet the stern provide a secure stance when riding standing up and effectively transfer bodyweight input to the hull when riding freestyle.

The new custom-tuned Electric Trim feature allows the rider to transform the JetBlaster's riding characteristics from serious to playful and everywhere in between. Exclusive to the JetBlaster, this Electric Trim is tuned to give the rider the ability to pop out of the water, do spins and other athletic riding. Powering the JetBlaster is the three-cylinder one-litre Yamaha TR-1® HO Marine Engine that is the most powerful motor in a compact-size watercraft today.

Yamaha JetblasterRefined 2022 FX Series with Larger Infotainment Screen, Audio Package

The best-selling luxury-performance personal watercraft series returns with significant enhancements that further distance the Yamaha FX Series from its competition.

New features include a 7-inch or 5-inch full-featured infotainment system with a glass colour touchscreen, premium factory-installed audio speakers, and Drive® Control with Auto Trim, which allows the operator to set and save preferred trim modes for performance or comfort riding.

Both screen sizes feature GPS-ready mapping with geo-fencing (GPS map cards are sold separately and available through Yamaha WaveRunner dealers). With the optional GPS map card installed, the operator can add and follow GPS waypoints, record and follow tracks, and geofence the riding area where the watercraft can be operated.

This new Connext® system features complete audio connectivity through the rider's smartphone. Riders can receive incoming phone calls and view incoming text message notifications on the Connext screen.

Also, there is a new Drive Control functionality that allows the operator to set and save different trim modes for performance or comfort, set top speed limits, and designate preferred acceleration curves.

Other significant enhancements to the FX Series deck are the new larger capacity, watertight glovebox that includes a dedicated area for a smartphone, a USB port, a 12V power outlet and LED lighting. Also added are new ergonomically designed handlebars and a new steering column design, which includes integrated rope hooks for added convenience.

For the first time, the FX Series is available with factory-installed, custom-integrated audio speakers so your music doesn’t have to stop when you leave the dock. The package includes twin, 4.5-ich waterproof marine speakers, an integrated two-channel amplifier, an easy access control pad, and an integrated low-voltage regulator to protect the battery.

New, Innovative RecDeck Platform Transforms What You Can Do On the Water

An exciting new accessory option for the Yamaha FX Series is the innovative RecDeck platform, which integrates with the stern platform and reboarding ladder brackets to enable a wide range of new accessory packages that expand the versatility of the FX line like nothing else in the industry.

The padded RecDeck is finished with MarineMat and includes four cleats that connect the adjustable Multi-Use Rack accessory (sold separately). The Multi-Use Rack expands to fit most coolers, and it also serves as the seat structure for the Lounge and Beach seat accessory.

Available accessory options for the RecDeck are the JetFish™ Packages, the Lounging Package and Tow Sports Package.

Other Yamaha WaveRunner models return with exciting new colours and graphics. The Yamaha Sport Boat line returns with a handful of updates along with exciting new colours and graphics.
