You never forget your first.
The first jetboat ROBRADY designed for Yamaha was the aptly-named “Exciter.” Now, the two have reunited to bring the excitement back just in time for the 2019 Miami Boat Show when Yamaha unveils its new 275 flagship.
Meet The New Standard In Watercraft Design
The 275 is Yamaha’s largest, most exhilarating jet-powered watercraft yet. It looks like nothing else, because it’s designed like nothing else. Its clean, progressive lines project a strength that belies a functional interior that seems to expand when the craft is underway. Characteristic of this ambitious design, ROBRADY cast off the conventional “attached” windshield for one that feels like an integrated extension of the deck. The daring hullside form, with its aggressive styling and high-sheer lines, completes this unmistakable profile that’s destined to become iconic of the Yamaha fleet.
A Bold Aqua-sthetic
Inside and out, the 275 defines ruggedized refinement—like a mini-yacht with muscle. Every millimeter has been scrutinized and organized to maximize fun and function on the water. The helm console combines clean lines, LED lighting, and ergonomically derived elements into a stylish display crowned by a floating instrumentation-pod with no equal.
The 275’s interior layout is all about smart accommodations. From ample seating, well-appointed galley, and enclosed head configuration, to an extremely open, full-length single surface center walkthrough/sole area, this jetboat provides plenty of opportunity for secure family fun and more than enough room for it.
Highlighting the 275’s capacity for luxury, the aft section boasts a swim platform and positionable seating that can be oriented toward the interior when underway, or repositioned to transform the water-centric aft space into a sumptuous lounging area and bar experience unmatched by anything on the water.
ROBRADY’s exhaustive collaboration with Yamaha on their latest jetboat went from 2D sketches to 3D models to 5-axis milled full-scale prototypes—and truly puts the “craft” in watercraft.
