YAMAHA SUPERJET

STAND UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL IN THRILLS ON THE WATER.

For those who strive for championships on a closed course, there is only one choice – Yamaha’s legendary SuperJet. Driven by a race-proven 700cc two-stroke Yamaha Marine engine, this gutsy craft delivers the ultimate combination of performance, control and freedom. The best-selling stand-up watercraft of all time is everything a thrill seeker could ask for.

Driven by a race-proven 700cc two-stroke Yamaha Marine engine, this gutsy craft delivers the ultimate combination of performance, control and freedom. The best-selling stand-up watercraft of all time is everything a thrill seeker could ask for. Stand-ups are all about carving ability, and here the Super Jet benefits from an aftermarket-influenced design of a wider hull surface forward and slimmer design aft. Chines are kept sharp and the pump is moved aft and covered with an extended ride plate. The design puts more hull surface on the water up front, under the craft’s primary pivot point. It also, when introduced, eliminated the original Super Jet’s tendency to favor a flat turning style.

Yamaha’s Super Jet is powered by a two-stroke motor – the last remaining one in the industry. The good news is that choice makes for a lightweight and powerful engine. Yamaha uses the once-familiar 701cc powerplant with dual 38mm Mikuni carbs, linked to a 144mm jet pump. It’s enough to power the boat to a top speed in the neighborhood of 45 mph, or push it out of the water when jumping off a wave. As I’ve said in previous years, don’t let that number fool you. While top-level runabouts are capable of going a good 20 mph more, speed is different on a boat you have to balance atop of and one you just sit on and squeeze the throttle. Plus, this is one of the most highly modifiable craft of all time. The aftermarket has plenty of goodies to make it go faster should the desire arise.
