I am definitely optimistic about this one. I already have a gantlin fatsac which helps create a larger wake to go ropeless. It's still not enough to push me on the Liquid Force Rocket. Their website states that it comes with two fatsacs, a pump, the booster, and a board. If that's the case then I will be onboard to buy it ASAP as I am already in search of a new faster board.

Agreed. I wonder when we can order these? Can't find it for sale on the Yamaha accessory website. Looks like it might be a dealer order only item.

I have a request out to our local dealer to see if I can get some more information. I have to take the boat into them next week anyways and can ask in person if more info isn't available by then.

The new system only comes with the wakebooster and the ballast bags and pump....... no board. At least that is what the sites says now.......

I wouldn't be too optimistic about the Yamaha kit unfortunately. The surf packages they offer are never enough. I had two 350lb bags under the seats of my AR192 and even loaded with 6 adults, it still wasn't enough. If I still had the boat I would have added the transom bag. That might be enough to play around on.

I bought the package for my 2017 242X eseries - it cam with the Wake Booster and a board, no ballast bags. My marina had one that someone did not pick up so they sold it to me for $999. Works awesome and we now have a great wake to surf on.

The Yamaha website says the 19' package includes the board:

For 19-foot boats, the package includes the WakeBooster, a custom external ballast system, 5'3" Slingshot® wakesurf board and wakesurf rope.

Per the same website link above it says 2019 and newer.

The Yamaha WakeBooster fits on 2019 and newer 19-foot boats (runabout and FSH).

According to Yamaha on instagram, the 19 foot package does not come with a board, only the 21 and 24 footers do.

Yeah it will be interesting to see if the board is included or not. Some conflicting information!

1031872017 AR195. Hyperlite landlock board and 1 adult/3 kids on board no ballast. I could easily get up on the board, a transom could make it a lot better. I’m happy for now giving I have made no additional purchases.

I just spoke with yamaha directly and they informed me it works on older 19 foot boats also. Even though the webpage says for 2019 and newer.

He gave me a part # of F6BU5909V000
MSRP 1,200

This is the first I have have heard of this. Before I get too excited I would like to see some proof it will work on the older ones (basically just attach is the issue) and hear how well it works.

I don't read that as saying it works on older models but rather that it works for all (current) 19' models. The hull was redesigned for 2019 but be sure to let people know if it lines up and fits on your 2018.

Will do. The guy at Yamaha was insistent it would work. I told him I wanted to make sure cause 1200 bucks would be wasted if it didn't. I'm gonna do some early season setup and tests mid April. So... I'll let you know.
