Yamaha Motor Australia Releases New JetFish Equipped FX HO
Yamaha Motor Australia is has announced the introduction of the new JetFish Equipped FX HO, the first-ever Yamaha WaveRunner tailor made for anglers, and ready to go fishing straight off the showroom floor.
The popularity of fishing from personal watercraft has grown at an extremely fast pace over the last ten years in Australia. Yamaha Motor Australia has been proactive in this space for over 20 years, working in partnership with third party accessory companies, through Yamaha’s dealer network, to support the requirements of local customers.
The official Yamaha JetFish accessory range was introduced to the marketplace in 2021 and includes the Yamaha RecDeck – an extended rear recreational platform, and custom fishing rack. JetFish accessories give customers the ability to turn any FX, VX or GP models into WaveRunner fishing machines. In 2023 Yamaha Motor Australia has taken the JetFish concept to the next level by combining these exclusive factory designed JetFish accessories with the extremely popular FX HO to deliver a complete “turnkey” fishing package.
The new JetFish Equipped FX HO allows the customer to conveniently enjoy the unique capabilities of WaveRunner fishing including speed to their fishing location, easy manoeuvrability, and shallow water access along with the traditional excitement that comes with riding Yamaha’s legendary FX HO WaveRunner.
“With the new JetFish Equipped FX HO, fishing expeditions have never been easier,” said Marty Kypr, Yamaha WaveRunner Product Manager. “Stress-free towing to and from the boat ramp, easy single-operator launch and retrieval, and hassle-free cleanup make fishing trips with the JetFish Equipped FX HO a breeze. With its outstanding performance and unique fishing capability, we are sure these packages are going to be extremely popular.”
The new JetFish Equipped FX HO retails for $27 899 inc GST (excluding trailer and registrations). JetFish Equipped FX HO will be available from selected Yamaha WaveRunner dealerships from the 1st of September.
