It’s considered by many (included a few inside of the company itself) to be the most successful supercharged runabout Yamaha has ever produced. Not only has the GP1800 charged to the top of every podium its competed for, but it was also one of the highest selling machines for its inaugural year, clinching #6 out of the Top 10 best selling PWC for 2017. So why is what the online haters call a “boosted VXR” so popular? Because it’s much more than its detractors let on. Hewn from Yamaha’s own super-lightweight NanaXcel2 material and propelled by its 250HP (*unofficial) Super Vortex High Output (SVHO) and 160mm pump, the GP1800 leads the industry with its power-to-weight ratio. Add to it a versatile hull design that can cruise, navigate wind-blown chop, and gnarly offshore white caps, and it’s the zero-frills-all-thrills machine enthusiasts have been dying for.
