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."
Yamaha also introduced its 2010 line of WaveRunner personal watercraft at the company's annual dealer meeting. The new 2010VX models feature more spacious seating for drivers and passengers and an expanded swim platform area.
