Yamaha Booth Model Highlights, Corner Descriptions

The Yamaha booth displays 10 boats from various kinds that seek to appeal to a wide range of visitors, from beginners to true boating veterans, including models like the popular fishing boat “YF-23” released in the autumn of last year, the “CR-33” cruiser designed to offer relaxed boating and the “AG-21” (AeroGear) specially designed for wakeboard towing.
The five personal watercraft on display are primarily environment-friendly models like the 4-stroke engine powered “MJ-FX140” and a cruising version of the same model, the “MJ-FX140 CRUISER.” You will also see the fuel injection 2-stroke “MJ-GP1300R” that achieves cleaner emissions comparable to a 4-stroke.
In the outboard motor section, we show four models each of our 2-strokes and 4-strokes that answer today’s environmental needs, like the new 240 hp 2-stroke “Z240A” with HPDI.
We have also set up information counters for programs like our boat license schools, where many inquiries are expected since the recent relaxation of the license requirements, and the continually popular Yamaha boat rental club. There are also attractions the whole family can enjoy, like a corner where visitors can get a virtual experience of the exciting PWC riding or sport fishing.
Another corner is set up for the Japan Marine Sports Promotion Foundation, which YMC actively supports, presenting the menu of educational aids of its “Waterside Activities” program. Also introduced here is the Junior Yacht School program.
