Yamaha FX SVHO vs GP1800

Hi everyone!
I have a 2012 yamaha and i want to buy a new yamaha waverunner so i've been investigating FX SVHO's and GP1800's caracteristics, but i've never seen one personally. By watching the papers, I have noticed that there aren't many diferences between both's equipment (same engine, NanoXcel2 in both hulls, similar electronic systems, etc) but i suppose there must be some differences between their hulls and performance but i don't know of which they are. Can anyone please tell me the differences between both pwcs and how notable the diferences are? Is it worth buying the gp1800 or i wont notice any big difference if i buy an fx svho? Are they practically the same?
Thank you very much for your help!!

What stands out right off the bat is the SVHO is 1ft longer, and 60+lbs heavier, so it is going to be more of a cruiser.
