How Much is a WaveRunner in 2020?

The Cheapest WaveRunners

Are you looking for the cheapest WaveRunner models on the market? Then you should take a look at the Rec-Lite category, which includes the EX family and the EXR.

These are currently the most affordable WaveRunners available, as the EX WaveRunners cost $6,899 to $9,399, depending on the model.

All of these models are powered with the same 4-stroke, 3-cylinder, 1049 cc engine, producing 100 HP. (Interesting fact: Yamaha still uses open-loop cooling system.)

If you are considering something more sporty, the EXR arrives with 110 HP performance and a $9,399 price tag.

These are the smallest and most lightweight models in Yamaha’s fleet, which means you can store, tow and handle them very easily. What’s more, they’re really good on gas and have the lowest ownership costs in general!

Recreation WaveRunner Prices in 2020

Recreation models are probably the most popular PWCs on the market, thanks to their larger and more stable hulls that offer great weight capacity and comfortable seats for 3 riders.

That’s why these models are the best choices for beginners!

Yamaha releases its recreation PWCs under the name of VX. You can currently find 6 different models in this category, and you can expect to see price tags from $8,999 to $11,799.

How much is a Yamaha VX Deluxe? One of the most popular Recreation WaveRunners, the Yamaha VX Deluxe, costs only $10,699 in 2020.

Performance WaveRunner Prices

If you’re considering something more powerful, the Performance WaveRunners are for you.

The Yamaha GP1800R HO WaveRunner costs $12,299, and this model is powered with a 1812 cc, 180 HP, non-supercharged engine. It’s bigger brother, the Yamaha GP1800R SVHO, costs $14,399, but this model is powered with a stronger, 250 HP supercharged engine!

If you’re looking for the most powerful WaveRunners, beyond the performance models, you should take a look at the luxury models too!

The Most Expensive WaveRunners
