OK, we are only hours away from knowing everything that Yamaha has planned for its latest batch of 2017 WaveRunners. So ignore all the chatter, rumors and junk floating around the Internet – you will have the real McCoy within hours. Given the level of anticipation for Yamaha’s newest 2017 model lineup, we can expect that you’d all be pretty excited – and that’s understandable. But what people don’t know is voluminous compared to the total package that Yamaha recently unveiled to The Watercraft Journal. That’s right. We spent three days personally testing half a dozen new models that not only blew our socks off, but will assuredly do the same for you.
Also, it bears noting that while there’s plenty of outlets who will be publishing near exact “cut and paste” press releases issued by Yamaha’s marketing department, The Watercraft Journal (together with Greenhulk.net) dug a lot deeper and got quite a bit more information that others simply won’t have. Namely, the finer details that you hardcore enthusiasts need to know about Yamaha’s latest models. Confirmed GPS speeds? You betcha. Quotes from Yamaha’s own Product Manager Scott Watkins? You can expect that too.
But here’s the rub: The Watercraft Journal is sworn to secrecy until tonight August 23rd, at 8 EST (Eastern Standard Time). So figure out what time zone you’re in and be prepared. We will delay our regular publishing schedule to include the 2016 Yamaha release until that very same moment, as well as all of our posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Oh yeah, and we’ll have exclusive hands-on reviews of some of the new models, video and a new episode of “Long Haul” at the exact same time.
