I am about to put a deposit down on a 2022 FSH, but after reading some of the horror stories on the 21s, I had some questions:

- I live in Phoenix and we have 1 dealer here. Iffy reviews on Yelp. I called a few out of state dealers, and they are all singing the same tune. Guy i talked to seemed good, but I don't know what their allocation with Yamaha is like. Should I consider ordering out of state? Anyone from Texas here? I'd drive a day in any direction to pick the boat up...

- Does the deposit with the dealer ever turn into an actual order in MY NAME with Yamaha, or does it stay in the dealers name? Does size of deposit matter?

- Is an extended warranty available through Yamaha - because their warranty periods seem like a joke.

I would get ready for a long wait game regardless. I put my deposit down in April and was first on the list at my dealership for a 2022 252 FSH. However, I just heard from my dealer that Yamaha is pushing all unfulfilled 2021 model orders to 2022 models so even being first on the list doesn’t seem to help. FWIW, I asked my dealer about the amount of deposit when we put ours down and he said it’s $500 for everyone. With all that said, I’m still super excited about the boat and have been using the time to pick up all of the ancillary things I want/need for the boat like EPIRB, trolling motor & batteries, upgraded stereo components, etc. hope this helps!

I attempted to purchase from the dealer in Phoenix. I won’t recommend them to anyone. I ended up purchasing from Havasu Motorsports in Lake Havasu. Honest people and great customer service. Sales tax rate is also slightly lower than Phoenix.

I live in New Jersey and bought a 2021 from a dealer in New York(Cross Bay, LI - was great). Registering an out of state boat is a little different. The selling dealer gave me a Certificate of Origin not a title. I paid sales tax on the purchase in NJ (3% on an boat) not NY(I think 7%-8%). The process at DMV takes a little longer. I'd say I spent 45 min in the NJ DMV once I got in. In NJ it was a 3 week wait to get an appointment followed by 40 min on line when I got there. I scheduled the appointment before I picked up the boat. That reduced the wait time.

Purchasing in NJ the dealer takes care of all government paperwork for NJ residents. So it's how fast can you get from the dealer to the water after picking up the boat.

congrats!! There is a guy in another thread claiming to be picking up a 2022 in the next week - so I have my popcorn ready! Every dealer i have talked to said yamaha will announce new models in Aug 17, so just a couple of weeks and we see new colors, changes, etc.

Doesn't look like it will be this year from what is being released already. Probably makes sense. Get the pipeline corrected and work out issues before a big model changeover. Next year is the smarter choice.
