Yamaha Wave Runner Customization
We were asked to customize a Yamaha Wave Runner for offshore fishing for a long time client. This has become a popular sport in Australia and is growing in the US. Meeting the requirements with so little available space was a challenge. First, we added custom LED navigation lights shaved into the mirrors and rear seat handle. Navigation electronics included a GPS chart plotter and 3D depth sounder with a separate display. Fish rod holders were added as well as a live well feed with an in hull mounted supply pump. This system also supplies pitch bait tubes for live bait at the rear of the live well. The live well is easily removed and replaced by a cooler. Fish bags were installed to haul back the catch. Range was an issue as this will be used for long distance runs, so an auxiliary 9 gallon fuel tank was added with an electric transfer pump to refill the main tank from the dash. All of the accessories required an improved electrical system with safety power reserve. An additional battery and custom charging system were also added. We just shipped this unit off to Panama! Three additional “Fish Ski’s” are in process to be completed soon.
