So I was sitting back and thinking about what is my favorite thing about my new boat. Was it the prop-less jet drive, the easy cleanout plug, the digital dashboard, the sweet swim deck seating or the fact there is a cup holder every 3 feet. So many choices that I was having a hard time making up my mind. Then it hit me. My favorite thing by far is every time I'm at the ramp loading or unloading the boat, someone says "Dude, that's a sweet boat". Maybe I'm shallow, but I love having the prettiest girl at the dance!

My favorite thing is the way the boat looks floating in the water... They look fast and mean! I know there is a love/hate relationship with the Connext screens, but I think they give the boat a modern look.

I'll weigh in...

My favorite thing about our boat is the joy the boys get from being behind it. Their faces light up when we say: "Let's go to the water!"

First time I saw the Yamaha Jet boat and really paid attention to it, all I saw what that swim deck seating. Had no idea what boat it was but I knew it was the one for us. Not long after, I found one and we brought it home.

My favorite thing about my boat is that it’s paid for in full / no remaining loan balance. This is especially true during the off season when it’s just sitting on its trailer on the side of my house.

I love that it starts every time and Maintanence is minimal compared to some stern drive boats. Also what others have said, presence on and off the water, bow spaciousness, swim platform, etc.

I love how it will do anything I need it to. For example it can pull my kids around all day on the tube, I can bring it to the lake and fish, go fish and dive 50 miles offshore in the Gulf and surf any time I want. I can't think of another boat that can do all those things.

For me, #1 love the fact it sits behind my house waiting to go out. Also, love the size, shape, color, looks and planes in 3 seconds. Last but not least, I can cruise at 40mph, put the throttle down and it puts you back in your seat.

Agreed! I don't think I even need the rest of the boat. Ha!

Agree on all counts! The looks, the handling, the compliments , the swim deck, the versatility… honestly, though there are always one off things that others may do better, I have yet to find anything that our Yamaha’s can‘t do. They are, in my mind, basically the perfect all rounder!

Same here. My wife didn't even want to look at other brands after I showed her these. I'll sit on the swim deck at home in the garage.

The women. This thing is a babe magnet. Crank up the stereo and they will come.

Only 2 of these rode there on the boat. The other 5 migrated.

I agree, these boats do everything well! Yesterday I spent most of the day trolling, then battened everything down and drove it like I stole it! Following the shoreline of the lake at full speed, I’m impressed at how well the boat handles, seems like the faster you go the tighter it turns! I can have four guests along to go fishing for the day and everyone has plenty of room to fish, then go for a cruise and everyone goes home with a smile on their face!
