Video: Yamaha’s Scott Watkins Introduces The New 2019 EXR WaveRunner


We at The Watercraft Journal have been making quite the racket about Yamaha’s newest entry into its Rec-Lite segment, the EXR. This little, lightweight hot rod is the perfect blend of old school rowdiness and up-to-the-minute modern technology. Yamaha WaveRunner Product Manager Scott Watkins was the most recent subject of this video taking us inside the development of Yamaha’s new EXR WaveRunner, which has the distinction of being the only ultra-lightweight, performance-focused Rec Lite watercraft in the industry.

We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on one of the very first 2019 EXR units and have done a few videos with it as well as a feature-length photoshoot. We’re currently working on the article itself while the video will be published in 3 weeks’ time to our YouTube channel as an episode of “Long Haul.” Until that time, check out the Facebook Live walkaround we did on the EXR as well as this exclusive inside-look with Scott that you can watch below:
