Yamaha says its PWC are tops in value retention

Yamaha WaveRunners retain their value better than other PWC, according to a comparison of Kelley Blue Book values of the 12 most popular models from each of the last five years, the company says.

Yamaha had four out of the top five models with the highest percentage of retained value across all the models that were compared, according to Yamaha.
