Yamaha Introduces "After Christmas Summer Blowout" on WaveRunners and Boats

New Sales Promotions Offer the Best Deals of the Year on New and Unused Yamaha Watercraft

Kennesaw, GA - Fuel prices are half of what they were last summer. Interest rates are at historic lows. The weather's starting to heat up. And today, on top of all these other great conditions for summertime fun, Yamaha WaterCraft is announcing an unprecedented sales promotion - the first ever After Christmas Summer Blowout.

Yes, it's way after Christmas, but all work and no play makes Santa a dull boy. So for all you people who play Santa all year round for everyone else, Tis the Season to visit your local Yamaha Boat or WaveRunner dealership.

Qualified Yamaha WaveRunner customers can get:
- $0 down, payments as low as $69/month, at 7.99% APR for 24 months on all 2009 and prior year new and unused Yamaha WaveRunners

"This is clearly one of the most aggressive promotions we've ever offered," said Bryan Seti, national marketing manager, Yamaha WaterCraft Group. "With the ability to mix and match between discounts, extended warranties and finance offers, there really is a fit for everyone.
