This is a very powerful jet ski as it is equipped with an 1,812 cc engine, probably the largest displacement engine found on a jet ski.For all its power and might, the Yamaha FX Cruiser SHO is actually very fuel efficient.

This jet ski combines performance, handling and style. It is often referred to as the Ducati of the jet ski world. It has a 2,260 cc, V6 four-stroke engine capable of producing up to 342 horsepower.
