Returning as the best selling model in its class in 2010 is the Yamaha 242 Series that
takes Yamaha Boats to its highest level of sophistication and refinement. Featuring the
largest boat platform ever offered by Yamaha, the 24-foot, 11-person, 242 Series was
designed from direct customer feedback to include their "wish list" of new features and
technology as well as new signature design elements from Yamaha.

Exclusive to Yamaha 24-foot boats is the industry's first "rumble seat" design, a fun and
innovative seating option that allows riders in the bow to enjoy a unique, front-facing
point-of-view in the forward-most part of the bow when underway. Completing the bow is premium marine-grade upholstery, stainless-steel handrails, 4 stainless steel
cupholders, multifunction filler cushion, a bow ladder, and an anchor locker.


-The flagships of the Yamaha boat line offering the highest level of refinement Yamaha

-Twin 1.8L Yamaha marine engines.

-Expansive bow seating that features first ever "rumble" seat design.

-Latest version of Yamaha's award-winning stern lounge and swim platform design.

-GPS instrumentation, Cruise Assist and 3-speed No Wake Mode.

-Now rated with an 11-person capacity.

The cockpit of the 242 Series is roomy, lavish, and refined. The 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.

Utilizing an integrated GPS-based information control center, the digital displays can
provide latitude, longitude, compass heading, elevation, water depth, trip odometer, clock, engine hours, engine speed, vessel voltage, vessel speed, highest speed, fuel
level, fuel used and they are the first in their class to provide real time (gallons per hour and miles per gallon) fuel flow data.

Also at the helm is Yamaha's exclusive Cruise Assist and No Wake Mode. The
Cruise Assist feature can be engaged at planing speeds. When engaged, Cruise Assist
will hold the engines at a specific RPM for effortless cruising or towing and can be
increased eight positions up and eight positions down at pre-set increments (125 - 188
rpm depending on current engine speed). The No Wake Mode includes three different
RPM settings allowing the driver to easily increase or decrease their no wake speed to
find the optimum setting.

Completing the helm is a premium stereo system with direct plug-in iPod® connectivity
inside the unit. When the iPod® is plugged into the stereo, it will charge automatically
and can be controlled entirely through the stereo controls, as well as the remote control on the swim platform. In addition, the new premium stereo comes with a separate waterproof and floatable handheld remote that can control the entire system from up to 50 feet away. 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.

Also included in the cockpit are a fully enclosed, carpeted head compartment, multiple
storage areas for gear, a dinette table with side-mount, and a large removable cooler
that stores under the passenger seat. NOTE: The cockpit seating in the 242 Limited
includes a Captain's Chair for the first mate.

The two-tier stern lounge area and swim platform of the 240 Series is wide, comfortable, and low to the water, which makes reboarding even easier and hanging out at the stern with family and friends more fun.

Exclusive to the 242 Series are plush, padded backrests and seating pads on the stern
lounge area. Completing the stern area is a dinette table with side-mount, a rear stereo remote, hydro-turf® deck mats, an integrated freshwater shower, stainless steel cupholders, and a reboarding ladder that extends deep into the water for effortless reboarding.

Under the waterline is Yamaha's dual internal drive propulsion system that delivers
better performance and more peace of mind than traditional stern drive models.

Yamaha's ultra-responsive internal drive system brings the 242 Series on plane faster
and accelerates quicker than comparable boats. The 242's shallow draft and enclosed
impellers increase the boat's versatility, allowing you to travel to places not accessible to stern drive boats. Yamaha Boats also feature pump clean out ports that are easily accessible from the swim platform, allowing boat owners to effortlessly clean out any
debris without getting in the water or having to reach under the boat. Additionally, the
low maintenance of Yamaha Boats makes them always ready to launch, all season long.
