Yamaha VX Cruiser 2007’s Top Seller
The 2007 PWC-selling season officially ended Sept. 30, and the Yamaha VX Cruiser led the industry as the best-selling PWC model of 2007, the company said in a statement Oct. 22.
This is the second model in Yamaha’s VX series to achieve best-selling status. Last year, Yamaha’s VX Deluxe was the best-selling PWC for 2006. In all, three out of the top five best selling PWC in 2007 were Yamaha WaveRunners, Yamaha reported.
For 2008, Yamaha’s VX Series returns with new colors and graphics, starting at $7,399 MSRP.
John Moffatt Sets PWC World Record
John Moffatt broke the continuous distance world record on a PWC on Oct. 14, by going 11,525 miles, according to an article on www.jetski.com.
The trip was to raise awareness for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, the disease his sister suffers from.
He completed his journey in four months on a Sea-Doo GTX. He started in Miami and traveled through the eastern half of the United States and Canada. The trip was nearly equal to traveling halfway around the world, which would have taken the average PWC owner 14 years to complete.
BRP’s Vice President and General Manager of snowmobile, watercraft, ATV and sport boat Yves Leduc acknowledges Moffatt’s determination and perserverance to complete his goal.
“BRP congratulates John on achieving this incredible milestone and doing it aboard a Sea-Doo watercraft,” Leduc said in the article.
Moffatt broke the previous record set in 2000 of 10,563; 38 miles shy of beating it by 1,000 miles. psb
