Yamaha Waverunners 2021 GP 1800R Ho Feature Auto Trim Screen

New industry-first Auto Trim

Auto Trim works independently from the electric trim control on the handlebars. When engaged, Cornering Control automatically shifts the trim into the bow down position when decelerating for tighter cornering and a racy feel. Launch Control automatically shifts the trim down to prevent bow rise when accelerating quickly.

GP Series Reviews

2020 GP Greenhulk Review

The new GP features an all new top deck design with deeper, wider, self-draining footwells. This new top deck gives us much better rider ergonomics and a muscular looking performance inspired look. If you look at the side profile, it has styling cues that look to be a mix of the old GP1300R and the FZ, I absolutely love the look!

2021 GP Watercraft Journal

The Watercraft Journal was invited to test ride the new GP1800R SVHO…The acceleration, mid-range pull, and mid-corner throttle of the new GP has been greatly improved thanks to several changes made to the craft’s hookup and cavitation mitigation. For 2021, Yamaha’s engineers have remastered its almost superhuman GP1800R muscle craft by improving on weight distribution, acceleration and cornering.

2021 GP Boating Mag Review

Overall this PWC is one of the most fun things you can do on the water you pull the throttle and you just have to hang on whether you're on the closed course or you're out just racing with your buddies.

2021 GP Personal Watercraft Review

The 2021 model year is shaping up to be a big one for Yamaha WaterCraft, with changes coming to the VX line, GP models, EX additions…and yes, the introduction of the brand’s first four-stroke SuperJet.
