Top Yamaha Waverunner Accessories in 2022
If you're a proud Yamaha Waverunner owner, then you know that these machines are some of the most versatile on the market. With a little bit of customization, your Waverunner can be perfect for any activity - from cruising to fishing to water skiing. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the best Yamaha Waverunner accessories for 2022. Whether you're looking for general accessories or sport-specific ones, we've got you covered!
Must Have Accessories for Your Yamaha Waverunner
Some accessories for your PWC are not needed and only make sense if you are partaking in certain sports or activities on your vehicle. Other accessories are non negotiable if you want to safely use your vehicle.
A USCG Life Jacket
If you want to enjoy your vehicle you and all your passengers will need a life jacket. It is highly recommended that you get a sports life jacket since riding a Waverunner requires movement that some cheap life jackets may restrict you from being able to do. After spending countless hours on a Waverunner I can vouch for the O'Neill Men's Superlite USCG Life Vest. It's lightweight and has great mobility, this allows you to forget you're even wearing a life jacket and focus on having fun while you're riding your vehicle. It's also priced competitively, so it won't break the bank like other PWC life jackets.
A Coast Guard Approved Distress Signal Light
If you take your Waverunner out in the ocean or Sea it is likely you legally have to have a flare or coast guard approved distress signal. But to be safe, you should have one on your Waverunner even if you keep it on a lake. The Sirius Signal is our top choice for the competitive price as well as the 60 hours of light it will provide you in case of an emergency.
A Yamaha Waverunner Cover
Similar to any other boat, your Waverunner should be covered whenever it is not in use. The damage that the sun can do to your upholstery is more than you would expect. Even if you keep your Waverunner in indoor storage, if you don't cover it, dust and possibly mildew will tend to gather on it and prematurely age your PWC. I have used this Yamaha Waverunner Cover for years and always found it incredibly easy to put on and take off. It's also trailerable so there's no need to take it off until it's time to get on the water.
A Telescoping Paddle
If you have much experience with PWCs or any boat for that matter, you know engines break. Having a paddle on your Waverunner will prevent you from being stranded in the chance your vehicle is giving you issues. Even in a small pond, you have an issue if your engine won't start midway through your ride. A telescoping paddle is perfect for a Waverunner as it will fit in your front storage, and then easily expands when you need to use it. This is a cheap, yet important accessory to have if you own any type of Jet Ski.
Jet Ski Anchor
While you can get away with not having an anchor for your Waverunner. It is definitely recommended to have one. Not only does it come in handy if you want to stop in the water, but it will also let you park your jet ski at someone else's home, or the shore so you can get off and not worry about your vehicle. If you want an anchor that is good for all scenarios I recommend a folding anchor that will easily fit in your front storage. They also make anchors that are designed specifically for sand bars if that's what you believe you will be using them for.
Practical Yamaha Waverunner Accessories
If you own a Waverunner you have definitely seen other jet skis that are maxed out with accessories, some practical and some not. Overall, there are certainly some accessories that do make your experience more enjoyable and more convenient. Below are just a few of the most practical accessories we recommend you consider getting for your Waverunner.
Waverunner Cooler / Fishing Rod Holder Rack
So here's an incredible accessory for anyone looking to spend long periods on their vehicle. A cooler rack allows you to safely attach a cooler to your PWC without worrying about it falling off. The fishing rod attachments do the same thing for your poles. If you've ever tried to bring a fishing pole on your Waverunner without a rack before you'll understand how convenient this is. It also lets you bring multiple poles at once. I can not vouch for any individual cooler / fishing pole rack as I have not used any that are currently for sale, but Amazon does carry many solid looking racks you can check out here.
To make the above accessory worth it, you will certainly need the right size cooler for your Waverunner to fit right with a rack. Regardless of what cooler you prefer to have. You can of course spend the money to get an expensive cooler like Yeti Tundra 45. It will also fit any other similar shaped 45-gallon cooler, so you don't need to worry if you don't want to buy a premium cooler.
Waverunner Bungee Dock Line
If you find yourself tying your Waverunner to a dock often, a bungee dock line can be a nice upgrade. The bungee allows you a little more give when you are attaching your PWC to the dock but will keep your vehicle close by and will also provide a little more give on choppy days. It is by no means a "must-have accessory" but it will make your life easier if you're someone that ties their Waverunner to docks often.
More Yamaha Waverunner Accessories
The accessories we listed here are only the basic accessories that are valuable to the majority of Waverunner riders out there. There are of course endless accessories you could get to customize your vehicle.
It's important to make sure you have all the accessories to ensure you are safe while you're on your vehicle. Also, any accessory that keeps your vehicle from aging prematurely will be a lifesaver if you want to prolong your vehicle's life, or even sell it one day.
