Brief Summary

The hull of the Yamaha VX Cruiser is molded from a composite called NanoXcel, which reduces the overall weight more than 60 pounds, delivering improved top speed as well as stronger acceleration with a given load. The company says the thermo-setting material is both denser and tougher, as well as lighter.

    All speeds are measured by a hand held Stalker PRO radar gun and a hand help digital timer, so the human elements is a factor. Temperature, saltwater versus fresh, load, and water conditions are all a factor and the reason why test results may vary.
