The 2011 VXR Waverunner is the culmination of years of research, emerging technologies and the ambitious dreams of Yamaha engineers. Now that may sound lofty and overstated -- particularly for a simple jet ski -- but trust me, the new Waverunner is well-worth the praise.

When compared to small utility vehicles (like the famous Smart Car), the 2011 VXR Waverunner is a veritable beast: lighter, faster and more powerful in every respect. For starters, this jet ski is capable of seating three passengers without issue. Its 1.8L, 4-cylinder engine is not only the largest ever installed into a personal watercraft, but dwarfs most car motors. And despite boasting a colossal, 3.27 meter frame, the Waverunner's hull is among the lightest in the market, made from exclusive NanoXcel materials.

At $11,000, the 2011 VXR Waverunner seems like the intelligent choice for owners of beach property who spend more time in the water than on land. Stats for Super Speedy Solo Watercrafts Trending: Older & Chilly
