    First ride Review of 2019 Yamaha FX svho cruiser

    Hello First off a little bit about me Iíve been riding personal watercraft since 1992. Previous owner of 2003 Sea-Doo GTX supercharged.
    Now a very happy new owner of a 2019 Yamaha FX svho cruisers.
    First time owning any Yamahaís, Comfort and ride. Rode on Lake St. Clair which is considered a decent size lake . The wind mild however I was able to run over some large boat Wakes . Smooth, cuts through chop dry ride , impressed with the ride, speed, and the way the boat handles example The turning felt like the boat was half its weight it felt like I was on a boat half itís size it was that nimble. That surprised me the most. The creature comfortĎs Yamaha did a great job with this cruise control, no wake mode, really surprised with the braking system, and the ease to dock the boat. I did hit 70 miles an hour and Iím 230 pounds with a full tank of gas. But I never felt unstable or unsafe. Love the large gas tank, love the large glove box, love the built-in cooler, love the new wide step, The machine was everything I was looking for in a little bit more, I was really debating between fx svho and seadoo rxtx, living in Michigan and in April very difficult to take test drives, I have to do all the reading I can check out the machines for myself and then take a chance. Remember Iíve never owned a Yamaha. I chose the Yamaha for me because of the larger gas tank, glove box, the foot well drainage, more storage ,
    I canít comment that itís a better ride than the RXTX because Iíve never driven one . Also I just like the way the Yamaha looked. Iíve also read and been told the Yamahaís have a better long-term reliability. Again these are my personal opinions, the machine is fantastic if you want comfort, speed, and Storage.

    This is really similar to my experience. I'm amazed how well it handles waves, and the power is intoxicating.
