Yamaha Motor Corp. today introduced its new 242 and 240 Series boats, which it says are the largest, most feature-rich boats the company has produced.

The 242 and 240 Series boats replace Yamaha's 232 and 230 Series models and are designed to compete with boats priced $20,000 more, the company said.

"We spoke with owners of our boats at length to determine what we could do with a future platform to provide a better boating experience for them," said Scott Watkins, product manager for Yamaha's WaterCraft Group, in a statement. "From this feedback, we created a new, larger platform, with more bow seating configurations than ever before, and a stern areas that sits just inches from the water."
