Features

Semi-V Multi Chine Hull
A semi-V multi chine hull allows the VX18R to offer the full package: neutral handling, stability, and comfort. Its rounded keel shape has a slightly wider front section, which helps to give a great balance between grip and controllable sliding in turns. Overall, the shape of the VX18R is designed for one thing: ultimate agility on the water.
Engine
This 1812cc Yamaha Marine engine is the largest displacement engine ever offered in a personal watercraft. It is also the only engine in the high-performance, four-stroke category optimized to run on the least expensive regular unleaded fuel.
Low RPM/Security Mode
With the ability to control both Low RPM Mode and Security Mode, the remote transmitter can be used to increase fuel-efficiency or disable the engine to prevent unauthorized start-ups.
Sport-Bolstered Seat
The all-new, sport-bolstered seat is ergonomically designed and contoured for added support during extreme riding conditions.
NanoXcel® for the Lightest Hull in its Class
The combination of an extremely lightweight hull and deck – constructed using NanoXcel® technology – helps achieve superb acceleration, top speed, agility and fuel efficiency. NanoXcel® creates an incredibly strong intermolecular bond and a smoother surface compared to conventional manufacturing methods. It's also 25% lighter.
Reboarding Step
The VX18R's re-boarding step makes it so easy to get out of the water and back onto the machine that it's the perfect choice for any watersports fan. You can not only experience the thrill of true sports riding, but also enjoy the VX18R for waterskiing and wakeboarding – or as a swimming and snorkelling platform. The fun starts right here.
Swim Platform
Roomy and comfortable, the extended rear platform is the ideal place for soaking up the surroundings, getting in and out of the water or gearing up for wakeboarding.
Dash
Provides a quick read on speed, RPM, fuel level with low fuel warning, low oil pressure warning, hour meter and check engine light with self-diagnostic function.
Open Looped Cooling System
All Yamaha WaveRunners utilise open loop cooling, which is used by 99% of marine manufacturers. Open loop systems have been proven to be the most effective, reliable and maintenance free solution for marine environments, which means less money and less time off the water.

With the confidence of the industry’s best factory backed warranty behind you, you’ll be free to relax and enjoy your time on the water. The 3 year warranty is for recreational use only.
