VX Cruiser (2012-2013)
Yamaha VX Cruiser (2012-2013) Test Video

We’re tempted to use the term entry level, but with a boatload full of features, it’s anything but. What we will call it... is affordable. It has many features, so it is not a striped-down version of anything. On the other hand, it is not the big kahuna of PWCs either. Rather it is your basic, well-equipped Yamaha ready for beginners or just anyone who want to have the fun of a PWC without having to sell grandma’s jewels. The VX Cruiser is Yamaha’s most affordable Cruiser yet it shares some of the features you’ll find on their top-end FX Cruiser models. This watercraft is aimed to please the family looking for luxury and affordability and, bow to stern, it’s a great package.
