General 2008 Yamaha FX Cruiser SHO boat reviews for Uganda

The engine: The newly developed engine of the Yamaha FX Cruiser SHO not only has a generous 1,812cc displacement but also adds a supercharger to deliver exhilarating power like you have never experienced before. This is the largest displacement engine ever built into a production PWC. And you can fill up the 18.5 gallon gas tank of this little beauty with Regular Unleaded gas. Yamaha has a reputation for reliability, and you shouldn’t expect anything less from this engine.

The Super High Output engine includes an onboard computer, making this the first PWC with an electronic throttle- what we call “fly-by-wire” technology. Along with engine performance enhancements like the throttle being more responsive, there are some other benefits that fall into the comfort and convenience category.

The exterior: The highly refined hull design of the FX Cruiser SHO that changes this awesome propulsion into exciting performance on the water is built with a new super-lightweight construction material called NanoXcel™ for an extra performance boost. Nanotechnology it’s the wave of the future, and Yamaha is the first PWC builder to use it in their manufacturing process. What it involves is engineering at the molecular level. That means huge benefits created by some broad advances in the properties of manufactured materials like plastics, for example.

The ride: The FX Cruiser SHO moves the bar up yet another notch in terms of luxury and comfort for the longer-distance recreational rider. Ergonomic, seating, raised handlebars, a multi-function instrument panel and handy pull-up mooring cleats are just some of the extra Cruiser features of this flagship model.

You will feel a big difference since your first acceleration. The FX Cruiser SHO takes off like a rocket. Once you’re underway, the feel of the boat is solid, yet the ride is nimble. Acceleration, turning response and top speed are all obviously improved. It’s much easier to feel than it is to describe.

The FX Cruiser SHO can reach a top speed of 66 mph, and can jump from 0 to 60 mph as fast as a sports car in only 6.8 seconds. And if you think that’s fast what do you think about this: in just 1.8 seconds the FX Cruiser SHO accelerates from 0 to 30 mph. At 30 mph you can ride for about 125 miles on a full tank.
