The GP1800R SVHO is the world's #1 race ski and this dominance is set to continue on the the race circuit and waterways.

We have worked with the world's leading pros to take the GP1800R to the next level, including race ready tilt-adjustable exposed handle bars, race designed intake grate and jet pump for enhanced acceleration and a narrow seat profile for improved rider knee grip and ergonomics.

This craft not only looks muscular but has the performance characteristics to suit. The GP1800R SVHO comes with an industry-first automatic trim system with Cornering Control and Launch Control, bringing new levels of handling and performance to racers and recreational riders alike. 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.

Combine this with Yamaha's patented NanoXcel2 hull, the GP1800R SVHO delivers an extremely nimble, agile and racy ride.  

It comes with built-in 4.3 inch Bluetooth enabled marines speakers and the choice of two model colours - cyan or black with stealth grey.
