  • Yamaha SuperJet


    The SuperJet is a stand-up type personal watercraft (PWC) made by Yamaha Motor Corporation. Part of Yamaha's WaveRunner line of watercraft, it was introduced in 1990 and has become one of the most successful stand-up personal watercraft ever made. All SuperJets, including the engine, are hand-built in Japan. Credit for the design is given to Clayton Jacobson II. Prior to the introduction of the new Kawasaki SX-R 1500 four stroke on October 6, 2016, it has been the only stand-up sold by a major manufacturer since the Kawasaki SX-R 800 was discontinued in 2011. There are three engine generations spanning 1990-1993, 1994-1995, and 1996-2019, and three hull generations spanning 1990-1995, 1996-2007, and 2008-2019. 2019 marks the 30th year of production for the SuperJet. The current model SuperJet is powered by a 701cc inline two-cylinder, two-stroke engine. All generations have an upper and lower hull constructed from SMC (sheet molded compound). SMC is a compression moldable composite material made of long strands of glass fibers suspended in a polyester resin. The Yamaha FX-1 is the only other stand-up personal watercraft produced by Yamaha, and was produced in limited numbers from 1994-1995.
