      The Waverunner Runs the Show

      Share This

      A perennial yachting favorite, the waverunner has consistently demonstrated to be one of the more thrilling crafts in water sports. Waverunners happen to be a staple aboard many yachts for charter and sale, and are often seen creating wakes around the mothership. Not just a water toy, the waverunner is a multi-purpose personal watercraft used for far more than enjoyment and play.


      The Essential Craft

      While on charter, crew are known to use the waverunner during snorkeling excursions to keep guests safe and to be close at hand, should anyone need assistance. There will typically be a crew member or two who are skilled riders, and will help guests to learn how to drive and maneuver the waverunner. Safety is key when operating any type of machinery, and the waverunner is no different.

      Proper Placement

      Most yachts for charter and sale will have a couple of waverunners on board, and some superyachts may even have as many as 10 stored in the tender/toy garage. On smaller vessels with no transom or garage storage space, the waverunners are typically seen secured to the deck where space is purposely allotted for such craft.

      Waverunner Restrictions

      There are some areas where waverunners are banned, due to environmental reasons. The British Virgin Islands, for example, ban them “in an effort to maintain the BVI’s pristine and peaceful environment.” Due to the many nature and wildlife preserves, certain areas around the world have also banned the use of waverunners, or at the least have restrictions on their usage. There are many other water toys that can offer similar thrills, such as the Flyboard, which has gained tremendous popularity as of late.
