Thirty Years Ago Yamaha WaterCraft introduces its first Wave Runner, the WR500

Every year since then, Yamaha WaveRunners and Sport Boats have led the boating industry as one of the most innovative, most reliable, and most fun brands on the water.  From its humble offering of two watercraft in 1986, Yamaha WaterCraft now offers 33 Sport Boats and WaveRunners combined.  Yamaha Sport boats are the best-selling models in the 19’, 21’, and 24’ open bow category outselling the competition by a wide margin.
