2015 Yamaha 242 Limited S

Everything you need to be on the water! Still has that New Boat smell!
Yamaha makes one of the most innovative jetboats in the business.
Starting at the bow, it is easily changed among five different configurations to suit the needs of the day.
Starting with the basic seating on both sides, the seats are long enough to extend your legs out. There's a filler cushion sunpad that turns the entire bow area into a sunpad.
A real innovation on this model is Rumble seating. Lift the forward cushions and pull up a separate cushion and the seat becomes a small seatback for facing forward. Remove the forward cushion and your feet are on the deck while facing forward. It's duplicated on both sides.
Re-insert the forward cushion and it becomes a comfortable support under the knees, and legs are still extended forward. It now has four seats with everyone facing each other and an arm rest between the two people on each side.
Yamaha has also made innovative three across seating on this boat. The filler cushions that make the sun pad also make another forward facing seat in the center. Now more people can be facing forward while sitting up at the bow. Close off the walk-through windshield and both it and the center seat back will block the wind on wet or chilly days.
There's also room in the bow room for the anchor and line storage and an extendable swim ladder at the bow.
The cockpit console has everything the captain needs for smooth and easy operation. The gauges all have visors over them to block the glare, and there is full instrumentation for the twin 1.8 L engines. There's a small flat area behind the gauges for putting sunglasses etc. and it's got a non-skid pad. The bucket seat swivels and slides, but does not adjust up and down. Throttles are mounted on a slight angle to starboard. The stereo is at the helm with a remote at the transom.
The controls are fly-by-wire and Yamaha has made some great innovations, starting with Cruise mode. Above 3000 rpm activating a single rocker switch puts you in cruise mode. You can incrementally increase or decrease speed in increments either way for sixteen settings from the speed you first pressed the switch at. In no wake mode, you hit the same switch and you have three increments up or down while still keeping the speed down and not having to worry about working the throttles.
Both engines and boat conditions are monitored with a 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, and fuel used.
The port side seat is a back to back which goes flat in the center and what was the seat then becomes a back for sitting while facing aft. Just lift under the front of the seat and bring it forward and up and you have an aft facing seat for watching the towline. Glove box is to port and forward is a roomy storage compartment. There is room to put a Porta-Potti there if needed.
Aft seating is wrap-around and grab handles and drink holders are plentiful. Lift up the cushions in the center and it becomes a walkthrough to the transom.
For watersports there's a curved forward facing wakeboard tower with integrated LED lighting and speakers. Undo a few mounting bolts and it collapses for easily storing the boat in a garage.
There are two very comfortable aft facing seats, drink holders, the stereo remote, a removable pedestal table and padding behind for legs that doubles as a separate padded seatback when sitting on the swim platform. The platform is just inches above the water making the re-boarding without using the ladder very easy.
Yamaha has installed their largest jets in this boat, twin 1.8L high output fuel injected Yamaha marine engines.
This is the perfect boat for family watersports, cruising or just enjoying the pure feeling of being on the water.
