2018 Sea-Doo Watercrafts - The Right Choice in Florida

March 20, 2018

I had the opportunity to attend a Sea-Doo introduction for dealers this week and what a fun day out on the Florida waters riding the brand new 2018 Sea-Doo models! One of the first questions asked by our trainer was: Why is Florida #1 in watercraft sales? My answer was the easy access to lots of water. Even though my answer wasn't totally off, the actual reason was the Florida weather. I couldn't argue with that... Floridians live here for the weather, the beautiful beaches, and the abundant lakes, most with public access.

It was quite ironic where Sea-Doo held the dealer introduction event because, about twenty years ago when I first moved to Florida, I had water skied on this very same lake! The restaurant is called The Waterfront on South Orange Ave in Orlando. It was called Julie's Waterfront back in the day and was a popular lake for tournament water skiers.

Sea-Doo demonstrated several new positive reasons why they have the best machines on the water. Sea-Doo's commitment to reliability, value, rider comfort and convenience, and the best in performance makes Sea-Doo an easy choice. Not being familiar with the Sea-Doo lifestyle, (I'm still a water skier in search of glass water conditions) I now have a new appreciation of these machines and understand why Sea-Doo is the best for the water!

One of our team members who had remarked that he might become bored after a while by just riding around the lake quickly found a change of heart after the demonstration on the Spark Trixx! The Spark Trixx got his vote because of all the tricks he could do with just a little time on the water. The Trixx lets you exaggerate how high you can raise the nose in the air and how deep you can bury it in the water, allowing you to pull off tricks that will amaze you and your friends! Additionally, it has a sport mode feature so you can choose between a faster or smoother acceleration.

Sea-Doo Sparks are more affordable and easier to manage for a new crowd of buyers. I am a 5'2" female and the Spark Trixx would be very easy to launch into the water all by myself, and when compared with other top brands such as Yamaha, the Spark has a lower price!

Sea Doo engineered the Sparks to be the lightest watercraft in the industry, weighing in at 405 lbs, which is 170 lbs lighter than the Yamaha FX. (That's like the weight of another passenger!)

After our intro to the Sparks, our trainer chose three team members from our dealership to demo the 3-up Yamaha versus the 3-up Sea-Doo GTI. The following pictures will show you how stable the Sea-Doo GTI was with three riders! The new ST-3 Hull was stable and strong. The T-shaped ST-3 hull boasts 30% better stability than the Yamaha FX.


Additionally, we ladies love plenty of storage when we ride, so several of the 2018 Sea-Doo models provide generous storage in the front. Now you can grab what you need from a comfortable seating position. The new over-sized rear deck includes more room for accessories like a removable cooler, a dry storage bag, a fuel caddy, and a game-changing quick-install ski pylon for us skiers. Now that's another reason I have become a Sea-Doo fan! Skiing, wakeboarding, wakeskating, or tubing behind a Sea-Doo! Soooo much fun!

The last test ride featured the performance of the 2018 RXT-X 300. Wow! I was so impressed with the acceleration when I engaged sport mode and added launch mode (0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds). These new 2018 models feature an intelligent throttle control that allows riders to program how power is delivered with the push of a button. Riders can select Touring, Sport, Ski, and ECO mode options. With power comes responsibility and thanks to the only US Coast Guard approved braking system called iBR (Intelligent Brake and Reverse) the Sea-Doo can be controlled for easy launching, docking, and stopping.

After a day on the water with the new Sea-Doo watercrafts, I have decided that this is the brand I would most certainly buy, to add to my collection of bikes.

The Sea-Doo GTI Class - Style, Stability, and Serious Fun

August 10, 2018

You know how it is. There's always that one guy; that one guy (let's call him Mr. Jones) who has to brag about all his escapades and latest gadgets: "This summer I did this...", "check out this new blah blah blah I just bought...", and so on and so forth.

You're probably a little tired of it. He doesn't get the hint when you roll your eyes. So maybe it's time to take it to the next level. Maybe you need to buy yourself a Sea-Doo GTI.

If you're looking for a watercraft that maximizes the fun on the minimum budget, the GTI class provides more features at an unbeatable value for money. The Intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR) lets you maneuver with ease. Enjoy more time on the water with the most fuel-efficient engine in the industry and the innovative impact-resistant polytec hull. Oh, and by the way, this ride is FUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNN.

This is also the perfect time... after all, Sea-Doo is having a great promotion that Mr. Jones doesn't know about. We're talking a $1200 rebate on GTI's, as well as 0% financing for 36 months for approved buyers!

Enough of the whole "Keeping up with the Joneses" thing. It's time to make Mr. Jones a little jealous and shut him up for good. Buy the GTI and enjoy his frustrated silence. Case closed. You win. Drop the mic and walk away.
