    New VX Hull

    I keep reading that the new VX hull is a "Mini FX" Yamaha designed for chop and saltwater"
    Is any of this true? I am considering a VXHO Cruiser for ocean riding. I know the FX is superior but I don't need the best just functional on a reasonable level.....would I be dissoppointed with the 2016 VXHO cruiser?

    The FXHO also has a 4 year warranty.

    I would go to the FXHO for the extra power and fuel economy on the ocean.
    2 up riding it's nice to have that larger hull.

    FXHO much better for two up ridding and rough water!

    The 2 Yamaha models in question have the same motor/HP

    the fx is always the better option if your concern is stability. You would notice the difference the second you step on to the skis back to back for comparison.

    I agree with you, but there is a difference between the two.

    Just came back from 4 hr ride with VXR.

    I have both and Yes there is a difference

    My comparison is FX big, roomy and comfortable vs the VXR or any variation of VX with 1800 engine.

    If any VX come with cruise its a big plus. Helps maintain speed through rollers vs constantly on and off throttle.
    Find steady pace and ride the wave in front on you keep hard ride to minimum

    The VX is more sport(wet) vs Cadillac ride(dry)

    Mind you two up or family in mind FX better but either work.

    If your crossing to islands like Lauderdale to Bimini the the FX other wise VX will make you happy or move up to SC'ed version.
