World-renowned professional wakeskater Danny Hampson is joining Yamaha WaterCraft as the company’s first sponsored wakesports athlete. Hampson, who was recently named the 2015 Pro Wakeskater of the Year by Wakeboarding® magazine, will help Yamaha promote its new 242X E-Series wakesports boat.
Yamaha pioneered the stern-lounge configuration, taking full advantage of the space gained by using low-profile jet-propulsion engines, and this year’s 242 Limited S shows even more refinement.
Yamaha today introduced its 2016 boat line that includes three all-new 24’ E-Series flagships featuring premium appointments and technology, along with advanced wakesports capabilities.
“I was impressed with 190 FSH…and that impression continued once I was aboard, where practically every hatch I lifted showed forward thinking and revealed clever engineering that had me grinning.”
"In our annual listing of the top products in the boating industry, you’ll find a wide variety of products introduced or significantly updated since the beginning of 2014.
