Sporty styling, great performance, exceptional economy, low maintenance and a great many features – all have played their part in making the VX models our most sought-after watercraft. But it is their all-round versatility that has gained them such a loyal following.

As well as a remarkably smooth engine and a host of other ‘luxury’ features as standard, the VX Deluxe offers our revolutionary RiDE control technology. This intuitive, user-friendly system introduces an immediate level of confidence to even less experienced riders.

Put simply, there is now no other watercraft which can deliver such a supremely capable and enjoyable on-water experience with such affordability.

TR-1 High Output 1049cc 3-cylinder engine

The VX Deluxe is powered by our innovative 3-cylinder engine, the 1049cc High Output TR-1. This remarkably compact and lightweight unit packs a real punch and offers lively acceleration and great top-end power, plus economy and reliability. The light weight of this engine also helps deliver superior handling, agility and balance.

HyperFlow jet pump puts the pressure on

Exhilarating handling and exciting performance are a hallmark of the VX Deluxe and its outstanding bite and acceleration are made possible by a combination of the high-flow intake, the Hyper-Flow high-pressure jet pump and the stainless steel impeller, which runs within a precision-engineered housing.

RiDE system (Reverse with Intuitive Deceleration Electronics)

The revolutionary RiDE system transforms your riding pleasure, bringing a new feeling of confidence to every rider at every level. Simply pull the throttle lever on the right hand-grip to move forward and accelerate - pull the lever on the left grip to slow down or reverse. Yes, it's really that simple!

Hull design made of light, strong NanoXcel®

Yamaha's unique NanoXcel® material is light and strong, for faster acceleration, higher top speed and greater economy. So it's perfect for the latest design VX hull and body, which offers improved stability and handling in all conditions.

Two-tone bolstered sports seat with dry storage

The ergonomically designed, precision-stitched, 2-piece seat is truly innovative. Perfect for sports riding with up to 3 people, its high comfort level will make you feel like it's been custom-made to fit you. What's more, there's a very handy dry storage area underneath it.

Multi-function LCD instruments & large dual mirrors

Great-looking multi-funtion LCD instruments mounted in a stylish cockpit panel are not something you might expect on such a keenly priced watercraft. Nor might you expect large integral mirrors, but the VX DeLuxe has them to help you keep an eye on what's going on behind - very valuable when towing a wakeboard or skier.

Extended rear platform and towing hook

The VX Deluxe will really appeal to watersport fans, with its comfortable three-person seat, extended rear platform with deep re-boarding step - and its strong, practical tow hook. Comfortable, slip resistant Hydro-Turf® mats are another real pleasure to look forward to after wakeboarding, skiing or swimming with friends.
