That is an odd detail.
If it's not available for another year, maybe this is more of a concept or prototype?

Starts at $99k, $15k adds the tower with a bimini top and another $15k adds the hardtop...
Those DRIVE paddles actually seem like a useful idea.
They kept the boat light, so that 500hp should get it into the 50's mph. no problem.
Triple pees holes per side?

Like others have said, it looks like they just made extra long loungers and made it 6" wider. If they are going to go beyond 8'-6" Beam, you think they should have just gone an extra 12"-24", if you can't tow it at 9'-0", why not go even wider. The cost seems reasonable for the size of the boat, but I haven't priced other boats in this category to know for sure. Certainly don't need something like this for the lakes of northern Wisconsin.

I’d like to see the rear view. Jets and AK seem different. I’m not interested even 1%, not for me. I’d like to see the ssd version or whatever their top of the line model has. How Is Yamaha going to sell the ballast/wake/surf/tube pulling version of this boat? Windows aren’t appealing to me either.

Yeah I'm with most of you guys.. I like that they are jumping into a new market/size and there a lot off new ideas and concepts. Love the aft seating area and lounge with adjustable seat backs, sink, storage, Drive system, even the seats in the water, but I just cant get past those windows. Kills the design for me. What about the sound system? any wake or surfing additions or is this purely cruising. Not that I'm in the market for 130K boat but if I was this wouldn't be it...for now. Keep trying and tweaking Yamaha...

With the separate engine bays creating an easier walk-through stern area, I'm guessing they already know this will cater to an...older clientele.
