This issue the money shot goes to Yamaha and Brian Baldwin, three time Pro Runabout World Champion and seven time Pro Runabout National Champion. This shot was taken by Digital Marketing and Communications Manager, WaterCraft Group Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA and part-time semi-pro photographer, Andrew Cullen. The Pro Rider crew accompanied Andrew on board a brand spanking new supreme handling Yamaha 212 Series boat on Lake Oconee during the 2017 Yamaha Reveal to capture some amazing images of Brian cutting it up on their all new super high performance GP1800. When asked for his initial reaction, Brian, who’s been racing and winning on Yamahas for years, needed little encouragement to demonstrate multiple high speed runs and had this to say, “This ski is awesome! The new hull turns like it’s on rails but is a comfortable ride. It’s super-fast and the ride system is killer!”
