Celebrated for its award-winning design. Revered for its engineering innovations. Admired for its versatility and class-leading performance.

  • Forward-Swept Tower: Offering distinctive style, the forward-swept, folding tower features flush-mounted cockpit lights and integrated speakers.
  • Convertible Lounger: The convertible lounger gives you the option to either sit or lounge, providing maximum comfort and enjoyment of the water.
  • Tower Lights: Integrated LED cockpit lighting adds a distinctive styling touch.
The Powerplant
  • The 242 Series is powered by twin 1.8L Yamaha High Output engines. The fuel efficient 1812cc four cylinder, four-stroke Yamaha Marine engines deliver smooth acceleration and unmatched reliability.
  • Independent, Dual Engine Controls: Adjusts each throttle position and control forward, TDE, neutral and reverse.
  • 3 Position No Wake Mode: Three different RPM settings allowing the driver to easily increase or decrease their no wake speed to find the optimum setting.
  • Cruise Assist: Yamaha's exclusive Cruise Assist feature holds the engine at a consistent RPM level to maintain the preferred towing or cruising speed and can be increased eight positions up and eight positions down at the pre-set increments.
  • Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI): Advanced multi-point fuel injection system utilizing a single electronically controlled throttle body and multiple reliable sensors working in armory for optimum air/fuel mixture under any condition. The result is a smooth, high power output with low fuel consumption and low exhaust emissions.
  • Yamaha Engine Management System (Y.E.M.S.®): An integrated, computerized management system that controls and adjusts such functions as ignition timing, fuel injection mapping and engine diagnostics.
  • Wet Sump Lubrication: Uses two engine oil pumps to deliver lubricated oil to each moving part with water-jacketed sump and oil backflow protection.
  • Independent Water-jacketed Exhaust Manifolds with Collector: Achieves high power while keeping noise and exhaust heat under control.
  • Thermostatic and Pressure Controlled Cooling System: Water flow through the engine is controlled by a thermostat and pressure system and is maintained by a pressure control valve.
  • Corrosion Protection System: Sacrificial zinc anodes protect the engine from harmful galvanic corrosion. Stainless steel fasteners (nuts, bolts, hardware) provide a long service life. Cylinders, cases and heads are all treated with a durable oxide coating to form a barrier between corrosion and expensive engine parts.
Jet Pump Propulsion System
  • Yamaha's jet drive system is renowned for its industry-best acceleration and quick time-to-plane. The 242 Series 155mm hyper-flow, high-pressure jet pump propulsion system is designed with an high flow intake and dynamic shape to effectively direct water flow into the pump for better thrust, performance and hook-up.
  • Thrust Directional Enhancer: A low-speed handling technology that maximizes control and maneuverability, the thrust directional enhancer directs water flow at an optimum angle creating more responsive handling as the boat is turned right and left at slow speeds.
  • Stainless Steel 3-blade Impeller and Housing Liner: For superior resistance to wear and long term durability while maintaining accurate clearance tolerances between the impeller and the housing for consistent performance.
  • Pumps are Manufactured with YDC30: A combination of aluminum, zinc and copper alloys, developed by Yamaha marine engineers, that offers excellent corrosion protection.
  • Cooling Water Intake Filter: Filters out harmful debris that could cause blockage of important cooling water passages.
  • Jet Pump Clean-out Plug with Push Button Lock Mechanism: Allows for direct access to the inlet duct cavity to easily clear any debris from the pumps from inside the boat.
Hull and Deck
  • The 242 Series utilizes a deep-V, multi-chine hull with 20-degree dead rise. The hull and deck are constructed of multiple layers of fiberglass with sandwich core construction reinforcements.
  • The fiberglass liner: Separately constructed, it represents a revolution in boat design, combining the floor, stringer, and engine mounting system. It is constructed from a custom blended polyester resin with engineered fiberglass laminates and 3/8" 6061-T6 aluminum plate for the engine mounts. The liner is bonded into the hull with polyurethane adhesive and then injected with foam to provide maximum floatation as well as longitudinal and lateral structural rigidity. The deck is then fastened to the hull with both mechanical fasteners and polyurethane adhesive giving this revolutionary semi-monocoque fiberglass structure unsurpassed strength and rigidity.
  • The cockpit of the 242 Series is roomy, lavish, and refined. The new helm layout is minimalist and sophisticated with large analog gauges and integrated digital information displays that provide independently controlled access to a wide range of new information.
  • Ample seating for 11: The cockpit seating in the 242 Limited includes a Captain's Chair for the first mate. A convertible lounge seat allows the observer to sit rear facing to watch people being towed, or forward facing when the seat is in the upright position.
  • Bow seating: Open and inviting, the spacious bow provides a variety of comfortable seating options, including front-facing rumble seats, offering a thrilling view on the water. Insert the standard multi-function bow filler cushion and you have one of the largest, most comfortable bow seating configurations available in its class.
  • Multiple storage compartments: Ten storage compartments include an enclosed head compartment (boat is not equipped with portable toilet), anchor storage compartment, storage under each seat and carpeted compartments under the starboard console. The 242 series is also equipped with a full-size ski locker that accommodates skis or wakeboards. Stern storage is perfect for wet items, like ropes and wetsuits.
  • Innovative swim platform: This award-winning stern with Hydro-Turf® mats and upholstered bottom and backrest cushions can be transformed into a private patio on the water. The swim platform sits just inches above the water line, making it easier than ever to get in and out of the water.
  • Stern features include: Integrated cup holders; Ski tow eye; Hydro turf® mat; Wet storage; Deep, angled reboarding ladder; Upholstered seats and backrests; Fresh water shower; Stereo remote control; Two marine speakers; Side table mount
Additional Features
  • Folding forward-swept aluminum tower with flush mounted Lights and marine tweeter speakers.
  • GPS-based information control center: digital displays can provide latitude, longitude, compass heading, elevation, water depth, water temperature, trip odometer, clock, engine hours, engine speed, vessel voltage, vessel speed, highest speed, fuel level, fuel used and they are the first in the industry to provide real time (gallons per hour and miles per gallon) fuel flow data.
  • Premium Clarion® stereo system with MP3/USB inputs, as well as a remote control on the swim platform. The 242 Series also features a total of six waterproof speakers including two on the swim platform offering more sound in more places than Yamaha has ever offered before.
