Equipped with an aluminum wakeboard tower, exceedingly powerful Twin 1.8 liter High Output Yamaha Marine engines and the industry's first front-facing rumble seats, the smart design of the AR240 High Output easily accommodates a variety of water adventures.
Draft: 16 ft. 0 in.
Beam: 8 ft. 6 in.
Water tank capacity: 50
CRUISE ASSIST / NO WAKE MODE
For effortless towing, Yamahas exclusive Cruise Assist feature holds the engines at a consistent RPM level. And when cruising through no wake
zones, No Wake Mode can be engaged to set the perfect idle speed.
Not only is the bow seating layout one of the
most expansive of any 24-foot boat, but it
also offers incomparable flexibility, providing
passengers a unique perspective while riding
in the rumble seats and numerous options for
sitting and lounging when moored.
Standard on the AR240 High Output, the
convertible lounge seat can be reconfigured
from an upright passenger seat to a comfortable,
rear-facing bench, making it easier to keep an
eye on wakeboarders in tow.
Neatly folded into the anchor locker, a bow
ladder is easily accessed and extended for
Integrated Aluminum Wakeboard Tower:
This sturdy aluminum tower provides the perfect angle for wakeboarders, not to mention, adding to the AR240 High Outputs aggressive good looks.
New Bow Seating Configurations:
Endless options for maximum comfort and versatility including all new rumble seat design.
Multiple Storage Compartments:
Ten storage compartments include an enclosed head compartment (boat is not equipped with portable toilet), anchor storage compartment, storage under each seat and compartments under the starboard console. The AR240 High Output is also equipped with a full-size ski locker that accommodates skis or wakeboards. Stern storage is perfect for wet items, like ropes and wetsuits.
Innovative Swim Platform:
This stern with Hydro-Turf® mats and upholstered backrest cushions can be transformed into a private patio on the water. New for 2010, the swim platform sits just inches above the water line, making it easier than ever to get in and out of the water.
GPS-based information control center:
Digital displays can provide latitude, longitude, compass heading, elevation, water depth, water temperature, trip odometer, clock, engine hours, engine speed, vessel voltage, vessel speed, highest speed, fuel level, fuel used and they are the first in the industry to provide real time (gallons per hour and miles per gallon) fuel flow data.
3 Position No Wake Mode:
Three different RPM settings allowing the driver to easily increase or decrease their no wake speed to find the optimum setting.
When engaged, Cruise Assist will hold the engines at a specific RPM for effortless cruising or towing and can be increased eight positions up and eight positions down at pre-set increments.
Built-In Removable Cooler:
Help keep beverages chilled and sandwiches fresh.
Dinette Table :
With all new side mounts at cockpit and stern.
Center Walk-Thru Transom:
Easy access to the stern patio area and swim platform from the cockpit.
Extra Long Telescoping Reboarding Ladder:
For easy boarding while in the water.
Telescoping Bow Re-boarding Ladder:
Tucks away neatly into an integrated compartment that doubles as a convenient anchor locker.
Adjustable Tilt Steering Wheel:
Allows the operator to adjust the angle of the steering wheel for added comfort.
Independent, Dual Engine
Controls: Adjusts each throttle position and control forward, neutral and reverse.
Ample Seating for 10:
Seating with convertible lounger provides excellent comfort and versatility.
Marine Grade Carpet Kit:
High-grade, removable carpet throughout the cockpit adds to the AR240 High Output comfort and great looks.
15 Stainless Steel Integrated Drink Holders:
Located at all seat locations for easy access for everyone on board.
Premium Stainless Steel construction with Sunbrella® material for better durability.
Premium JBL® stereo system with MP3 auxiliary input.
High-quality Trailer: Every AR240 High Output comes complete with a custom painted trailer, spare tire and mount and swing-away tongue for easy storage.
The AR240 High Output is powered by twin 1.8L Yamaha High Output engines.
These 1812cc four cylinder, four-stroke Yamaha marine engines deliver excellent power in a lightweight, compact package.
Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI):
Four individually adjustable throttle bodies, throttle position sensor (TPS) and intake air pressure and air temperature sensors supply the optimum air/fuel mixture. The results are a smooth, high power output with low fuel consumption and low exhaust emissions.
Wet Sump Lubrication:
Uses two engine oil pumps to deliver and return lubricated oil to each moving part with water-jacketed sump and oil backflow protection.
Yamaha Engine Management System (Y.E.M.S.®):
An integrated, computerized management system that controls and adjusts such functions as ignition timing, fuel injection mapping and engine diagnostics.
Independent Water-jacketed Exhaust Manifolds with Collector:
Achieves high power while keeping noise and exhaust heat under control.
Thermostatic and Pressure Controlled Cooling System:
Water flow through the engine is controlled by a thermostat and pressure system and is maintained by a pressure control valve.
Corrosion Protection System:
Sacrificial zinc anodes protect the engine from harmful galvanic corrosion. Stainless steel fasteners (nuts, bolts, hardware) provide a long service life. Cylinders, cases and heads are all treated with a durable oxide coating to form a barrier between corrosion and expensive engine parts.
Electronically Controlled, Variable Ignition Timing:
For exact ignition advance control at all throttle positions and RPMs.
The Jet Pump Propulsion System
The AR240 twin 155mm hyper-flow jet pump propulsion system with three-blade stainless steel impeller:
Designed to maximize water flow for high performance. The twin pump configuration provides excellent hook-up and smooth acceleration.
Pumps are Manufactured with YDC30:
A combination of zinc and copper alloys, developed by Yamaha marine engineers, that offers excellent corrosion protection.
Stainless Steel Impeller Housing Liner:
For high durability, the liner maintains accurate clearance tolerances between the impeller and the housing.
High Flow Intake Duct and Grate:
The dynamic shape of these items directs water flow into the pump for better thrust, performance and hook-up.
Cooling Water Intake Filter:
Filters out harmful debris that could cause blockage of important cooling water passages.
Jet Pump Clean-out Plugs with Push Button:
Allows for direct access to the inlet duct cavity to easily clear any debris from the pumps from inside the boat.
The Hull and Deck
The AR240 High Output utilizes a deep-V, multi-chine hull with 20-degree dead rise.
The hull and deck are constructed of multiple layers of fiberglass with sandwich core construction reinforcements.
The Fiberglass Liner:
The liner is bonded into the hull with polyurethane adhesive and then injected with foam to provide maximum floatation as well as longitudinal and lateral structural rigidity.
Fastened to the hull with both mechanical fasteners and polyurethane adhesive giving this revolutionary semi-monocoque fiberglass structure unsurpassed strength and rigidity.
The Fiberglass Stringer:
Separately constructed, laminated into the hull and then injected with foam to provide maximum floatation as well as longitudinal and lateral structural rigidity.
