"The FX SHO features the world’s first hulls and decks manufactured through the use of cutting edge nanotechnology. Yamaha’s new NanoXcel ultra-lightweight, high strength material reduces the weight of the hull, deck and liner by 25% and provides performance gains in acceleration, top speed and handling. Additionally, the NanoXcel material offers a shinier, gem-like finish which reduces surface tension on the water, providing a more nimble, responsive ride."

"Yamaha's new FX Cruiser SHO, available in platinum and crimson-red-metallic (pictured), comes equipped with a 1.8-liter supercharged engine and weighs 25 percent less than previous models (thanks to the nanotechnology used to craft its chassis). But what's really remarkable is its introduction of a cruise-control feature. That, in concert with its 19.8-gallon cooler and self-draining beverage holders, just begs for casual Corona-fueled races. Our advice? Steer clear of resorts that cater to the college-age set."
