I’ve been waiting since the 2nd week of July for my blue 195s. In the mean time I’ve started surfing. Called and cancelled my 195s and now own a 2021 Moomba max. Wish it had the Yamaha swim platform but feel this will suit our needs/wants better. Dealer was really understanding when I pulled my deposit. Not their fault and honestly I feel this Moomba is the boat I want now. No hate for Yamaha and I feel the wait saved me money actually. Not right now but In the future.

@woodhall jr .....congratulations. I have done a lot of slalom skiing behind Moombas and they are great little boats. Agile, much less expensive to maintain that some of the "big rig surf boats" and very robust. :cool:

Congrats. I sort of did the same thing. Was waiting for a 195s too. Cancelled the order almost 2 weeks ago and put the deposit on a 252 fsh sport. Fell in love with that boat while waiting.

@woodhall jr ....you may be ahead of the curve :) as there may not be Yamahas on a lot of local boaters docks where I live, either. Saw a dealer post for 2021 Yamahas for sale and "in stock". Not my dealer but a reputable one. Called to check. Not in stock - but "could be" in stock. Hmmmmm received apologies for an add that should have stated taking orders now. What I was told was that orders now would result in delivery December"ish". Orders in 2021 would likely arrive sometime in the summer of 2021. Pretty much what I expected would be the case. Salesman was professional, patient and frustrated by the lack of product. He said he had almost sold-out all of his 2021 factory allotment as it stood yesterday. He did give me an out the door price of a 2021 SX195 with the options I ordered ($CDN of course) it was about 5K more than I paid so no free cover, reduced cost for Yamaha factory warranty, parts at dealer cost or $ extra price discounts. He said there are about 5 people waiting for many models. What a difference a year makes!!!!!

@Canuckjetboater Every Yamaha comes with a free (shipping) cover. Some dealers toss them to force people into buying the "premium" cover. A shady and dishonest business practice IMO so be mindful of that if they chose to go down that sales tactic road.

Congrats! That’s a big leap from a 195 to a Max in size and cost...You made a good choice!
Yeah... buy once cry once. I almost didn’t take my own advise. I was honestly getting a price on a bigger Yamaha too but this deal was WAY too good to pass up.

@haknslash ......thanks for the info. The cover I received free-of-charge was the Yamama - what I refer to as trailering cover - that is black with the side ratchets. I also received the Yamaha OEM bow and cockpit covers at dealer cost and the dealer paid to have the snaps on the covers and on the boat installed at a canvas shop. :cool:
