There’s the adage of “dress for the job you want” that sort of applies here. Sure, you might lack the talent, physical prowess or literally near-30 years of riding experience of multi-multi-world champion Chris MacClugage, but that doesn’t mean you can’t ride what he rides. In fact, you can do so quite literally as he has recently posted his 2016 Yamaha FZS Pro Stock or Pro Enduro Championship Race Boat up for sale.
The blue-and-white FZS is adorned in a very strikingly similar paint and decal scheme as acclaimed Super Sportbike racer Valentino Rossi – even wielding the same iridescent-yellow 46 on the hood – who is a personal source of inspiration for the 42-year-old PWC racer. Although currently compliant with Stock and AquaX regulations, Macc adds that “This ski can be set up to accommodate closed course or off shore racing.”
With a total 11 hours on the clock (with a scant 2 hours on a new engine), the Yamaha was built by Dean’s Team with all Worx products (meaning their FZ Drop-In Steering Stem, Special Insert Edition Race Sponsons, Intake Grate, FZ Ride Plate and Pump Seal Kit, and very likely a few other items we might’ve left out), and a hand-stitched Jettrim seat cover. Right now, the asking price is a cool $19,000, but Macc is also up for reasonable offers – so make sure to private message him through Facebook if you’re a serious buyer.
