What’s New for Sea-Doo in 2016


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Nashville, Tennessee Sept. 18, 2015 – BRP charges into 2016 building on the successful launch of the Sea-Doo SPARK as the industry’s most accessible watercraft and introduces new technologies and designs that take riding to the next level emphasizing the Sea-Doo legacy of being on the forefront of innovation.

WhatsNewBRP continues to perfect the Science of Fun with the introduction of the new 300-hp Rotax 1630 ACE engine powering the 2016 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300, RXP-X 300 and GTX Limited 300 models and adding the Ergolock seat to all RXT and GTX models with many models receiving a redesign of the storage area providing up to three times the overall storage volume. All 2016 models will now have the new second-generation iBR (intelligent Brake & Reverse) system and new, trend leading coloration including three new delicious colors for the 2016 Sea-Doo SPARK.



To feed the larger engine more air a new, re-designed supercharger with a faster spinning 32-blade wheel (double the blades of the previous version) has been added producing 30% more intake boost. A new larger intercooler provides a more dense air charge and aids in increased airflow and features a new air fin design for improved heat transfer utilizing a smart design with long life aluminum alloys for better corrosion protection. New ignition curves have been developed to efficiently match the increased air boost with the output of the larger fuel injectors leading to the 15% increase in horsepower in the 2016 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300, GTX Limited 300 and RXP-X 300 models. The 2016 RXP-X 300 sets the new standard at the next level now with industry’s best power-to-weight ratio.



BRP designers have applied the science of rider centric ergonomics learned in the laboratory and from the recent Sea-Doo closed-course racing success as the race-proven Sea-Doo Ergolock seat of the RXP-X model has been adapted to more models for 2016. The Ergolock seat is optimized to fit a variety of riders and utilizes a narrower, slim profile design between the legs with body-molded knee pockets allowing riders to sit in a more natural position and leverage leg muscles to grip the watercraft. It also allows the rider to connect with the watercraft better and use the entire body to hold on rather than only the upper-body, thus improving comfort, confidence and reducing upper body fatigue.

The new Ergolock seat is available on all Sea-Doo RXT and GTX models and the WAKE PRO 215 model. On the RXT and WAKE PRO 215 models, the Ergolock seat lets riders leverage leg muscles to grip the watercraft for better control. The GTX models feature the Ergolock seat with stepped design for more comfort while touring and confidence while turning. The stepped design implements sculpted, rising seat levels for better passenger vision and lateral support. Added surrounding lumbar cushioning for up to three riders holds them in place better with more comfort in all conditions.

The 2016 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300 receives the full Ergolock system. In addition to the sculpted seat optimized for better transition between sit-down riding and standing, it includes the Adjustable Ergonomic Steering (A.E.S.) handlebar and angled footwell wedges, that have been proven to benefit in aggressive cornering and are equally beneficial in connecting to the watercraft in choppy, open-water, straight-line riding. The added ability for the rider to feel better connected to the      RXT-X 300 delivers better control and less fatigue allowing the rider to utilize the available power more efficiently and more confidently. The WAKE PRO 215, non-suspension RXT and GTX models with new Ergolock seat also adds wet storage under Sea-Doo’s exclusive removable watertight storage bin for over three times more total storage capacity than the previous generation with 162 liters (42.8 US gallons) and a new larger glove box.



All 2016 Sea-Doo models will be equipped with the second-generation iBR that sets the standard for intuitive operation and improves on the industry’s first braking system. The new iBR allows you to stop close to 48.75 m (160-feet)1 sooner than deceleration without braking. The Sea-Doo iBR system is the first and only braking system recognized by the USCG since 2009 for contributing to recreational boating safety and is now even better with a stronger gear drive motor and larger, reengineered brake gate. The intuitive iBR system adds to the rider centric design approach providing maximum control and a more natural reaction in all situations.



All 2016 Sea-Doo models will be equipped with new handlebar grips that feature a flared surface acting as a palm rest for a better ergonomic fit for the hand added comfort during extended riding.


The Sea-Doo SPARK continues to be the industry’s most accessible and affordable watercraft making the dream of owning a watercraft possible now. The Sea-Doo SPARK has contributed to 20% industry growth in its introduction year2 and returns in 2up and 3up3 models and is available with the Rotax 900 ACE and Rotax 900 HO ACE marine engine packages. In 2016, the Sea-Doo SPARK is easy to personalize with three new delicious colors; Blueberry, Key Lime, and Chili Pepper, joining the Pineapple and Vanilla colorations and six new graphic kits expanding on the dozens of graphic kit options available. For 2016, models equipped with the iBR system will also come with the Convenience Package Plus that includes the Sea-Doo SPARK Front Storage Bin Kit that flows with contours of the design, the Sea-Doo Step for easier reboarding and the Digitally Encoded Security System (RF D.E.S.S. Key) that allows for greater security from theft and unauthorized use.

The Sea-Doo SPARK watercraft is more affordable4 and more fuel-efficient5 than any other model in the industry. Plus, the durable Polytec material of its hull and deck is solid while being recyclable, making it a more eco-friendly watercraft. The compact design of the Sea-Doo SPARK and lightweight construction makes it easy to own, easy to tow, simple to store and a blast to ride.


The engineering and design team at Sea-Doo introduces the leading edge Element Jacket and Pants for 2016, offering riders warmth and protection to extend riding season beyond the summer months. Brand advocates of both genders will transition from land to water in chic styling. The windproof material with Teflon water-repellent treatment has a laminated membrane that is designed to be both water resistant and breathable. For added comfort during colder days, the jacket and pants are lined with brushed-knit polyester thermal fleece. A relaxed fit allows enough room for the rider’s favorite Sea-Doo boardshorts and the pre-shaped legs are designed for multiple riding positions. The Element Pants add on to the functionality and styling of the Element Jacket with additional exterior pockets to carry essentials. The new Element Jacket and Pants offer Sea-Doo enthusiasts casual and functional gear that matches the unique design of Sea-Doo watercraft and will get their hearts pounding.

7 Basic Tips for Sea-Doo Towing


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

You’ve been eyeing the next addition to your personal Sea-Doo line up. How can you have more fun on the water? The solution—WAKE. The Watercraft Journal recently reviewed the WAKE 155 model stating, “In perfect Sea-Doo fashion, the PWC manufacturer equipped with their Wake units with so much innovation and features that the segment has become one of the brand’s most popular in recent years. Branching further than mere wakeskate and wakeboard riders, the Wake models appeal to families using the craft for whipping towables around their local lake or river.”

Wake 155_13279_MY15

So you’ve made the decision and your new Wake model is home. You can’t wait to get out on the water. One of two things come to mind. It’s either, “I have never towed someone before. How do I do that? What’s right and wrong;” or “I’ve got this, let’s go.” Whichever way, safety is important so here are 7 basic tips for Sea-Doo towing.

1. Know your local laws before towing. Most states require that the watercraft is a 3-passenger with mirrors, with a driver and a spotter. Some states require safety signal devices.  Check www.boatus.org for the laws in your state.

2. Make sure your rope is secure to the watercraft, either a ski pylon or tow eye in the rear of the watercraft. Do not tie ski rope to anything that was not manufactured to be used as a tow point.

3. Take note of a person’s ability. Driver’s should practice without a skier, and focus on smooth accelerations and maintaining a steady speed. On Wake models (WAKE 155 & WAKE Pro 215), SKI mode is a standard feature and can be turned on to accomplish this. SKI mode is an advanced iControl feature that allows the driver to adjust the intensity of the launch for different rider skill levels and tow sports while maintaining a constant speed. You get 5 acceleration profiles for the best possible tow sports experience.

WAKE Pro 215

4. Once your skier is in the water, take the slack out of the rope. Begin idling once the slack is tight.  Then when the skier signals that they are ready to go, accelerate enough to pull the skier up on the top of the water. Get to your preferred speed and maintain that speed.

5. Always look forward, not behind at the skier, that is the spotters job.

6. When the skier is done or falls, come down to an idle, slowly turnaround without running the rope over, maintain a steady, slow speed back to your skier. Loop around behind them so they can reach the rope, and start all over again making sure you never aim straight at your rider, always stay to the left or right of them during your approach.

Four Hulls, Never-Ending Riding Experiences


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Sea-Doo personal watercraft have four entirely different types of hulls. Yes, four. And, each one offers a different type of riding experience so that you get the best type of ride for your style.


Let’s start with the GTI hull. Our GTI hulls are playful, stable and predictable. They provide riders that need a more forgiving watercraft, but still have versatility for glassy and moderate water conditions. The hull rides higher on the water surface so that you get that nimbleness that make watercraft a blast and it planes quickly. With multiple passengers, the extended width has been shown to be the most stable ride. How can you point this hull out?

GTI HullThe GTI hull has a flatter V (16-degree deadrise) and is shorter with a low center of gravity. It is also a three-seater, which means it has tow sport capabilities! This hull makes for ideal rides on all of Sea-Doo’s GTI / recreation models as well as the WAKE 155 for wakeskating & wakeboarding and the GTR 215 for performance rides. A recent win from Eric Lagopolous at AquaX in St. Cloud on his Sea-Doo GTR 215 shows just how versatile this hull truly is.

Always innovating, we didn’t stop with the unique performance of the GTI hull. Our team of designers developed the S3 hull for a Stepped, Stable and Strong ride. Sea-Doo S3 Hull Stepped Design

These hulls are made from a lightweight material, and the stepped style creates a low-pressure zone to reduce drag and create nimble handling.  The S3 hull cuts through the water and leans naturally when cornering; it’s really all about comfort. For riders looking to take an extended journey, this hull reigns supreme as it bridges and cuts chop better.

Sea-Doo S3 Hull You can differentiate the S3 hull by it long, deep V shape (23-degree deadrise) and suspension option. It also comes as a three-seater with towsports capabilities. The S3 is the platform for all of the Sea-Doo GTX / Luxury models (we mentioned comfort, didn’t we?), the WAKE Pro 215, and the RXT models for better offshore performance.

The revolutionary T3 hull was another design success. For performance enthusiasts, this hull is the cream of the crop. It provides aggressive lean-in turning characteristics. And, it penetrates through chop and rough water conditions better than any of its predecessors. T3 stands for Tight-Turning T-hull and uses an advanced dual surface hull design.

Exclusive T3 Hull

A unique combination of soft and hard chines engages the water with a suction-like force when leaning into a corner. These combined features allow the rider to turn tighter and faster. The T3 hull has great stability at idle and low speeds, unmatched acceleration, and a narrow high-speed running surface that helps the RXP-X track though chop better. It delivers an agile and highly precise driving experience ideal for enthusiasts craving a superior race-oriented watercraft. Complimenting the T3 hull is the Ergolock system that offers the rider greater control and confidence as it focusses on connecting the rider better with he lower body minimizing upper body fatigue. The T3 hull design can only be found on the two-seater RXP-X 260.


The SPARK hull design objective was based on bringing back the simple fun and heritage of early day Sea-Doo models. The Sea-Doo X4 hull was one of the all-time best selling hull styles and this hull was used as the basis for the SPARK. This V-hull includes a latter center running surface and two sets of hard chines on either side of the keel to provide precise handling while being nimble and playful.

2014 SEA-DOO SPARK 2UP_STUDIO PROFILE PINEAPPLEThe hull features three new design effects that provide a better overall rider experience. Additional volume was added both to the bow and to the rear gunnels to provide extra buoyancy and stability. Plus the reshaped bow design helps deflect water down providing a dryer ride. Available in both 2up and 3up versions, the 3up option includes the addition of a modular hull extension to raise capacity 100 pounds and providing a more stable platform for tow sports.

2014 SEA-DOO SPARK_LIFESTYLE4SmallThe innovation doesn’t end there as one of the many value propositions of the SPARK is accessibility and fun. Keeping the power-to-weight ratio strong includes keeping the SPARK light weight and the new, exclusive Polytec material provides a lightweight hull while maintaining ruggedness and durability. Weighing in at nearly half the weight of full-sized watercraft, the SPARK is easy to move both on-water and off making it easy to tow with even the smallest sedans.

Needless to say, whatever type of fun you’re looking to have out on the water, Sea-Doo’s designs deliver.

Crushing it at the Ultimate Sea-Doo Beach Party


, , , , , , , ,

Last you heard, we were planning our Ultimate Beach Party with Devin SuperTramp this past May. We wouldn’t be giving it proper justice if we said it was anything less than a total and complete blast. Nothing is more fun than living the Sea-Doo life with beautiful weather and great friends. While we were stoked to work with Devin on another great video, we were just as excited about including the winner from the Ultimate Beach Party contest, Trevor Soety (@the_trevorsoety & Trevor Soety Channel), and two of his closest friends who joined us in May for the ultimate fun at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach, FL.

Trevor Soety, Winning Image Not only did Trevor get to hang out with the Sea-Doo crew and Devin, he won a 2015 SPARK! Trevor’s new addition is the first PWC he has owned and we were more than happy to share his experience with all of our Sea-Doo fans.

‘For me, winning the Ultimate Beach Party contest was an amazing experience. I got to meet Devin Graham, which gave me the chance to be in one of his SuperTramp videos. He actually said something pretty impactful to me while we were filming; “anything worth doing is worth doing right,” this really hit close to home.

After winning my new SPARK in Orange Crush, it brought so much fun into my life. I’ve been able to take my SPARK scalloping and even picked up wakeskating. Trevor Soety 2015 Sea-Doo PARKWhat’s even better is the bet I had with one of my friends about this contest. If I won and got the new SPARK, my buddy would buy one too. Guess what? I won! Riding it is such a blast, I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to buy a personal watercraft. 

I want to say thanks to Sea-Doo, Devin SuperTramp, and the Sea-Doo community which includes all of the fans that submitted videos or photos for the beach party contest.’ — Trevor Soety

Road Trip Sea-Doo Style!

It’s time for summer living which means families are gearing up for some much-needed time off and fun on the water. The suitcases are packed and the trunks are loaded, now just to get the Sea-Doo ready for the road trip to that perfect destination that you’ve been planning to hit since the cold, winter months.

Summer Trip Quick-Guide:

  1. PAC-PFD-SPARKGeared to go: Before heading out of the door, double-check that all of the gear fits correctly. If you’re using the same PFD’s from previous summer fun, it’s possible that some of your family members (kids grow up fast) have outgrown them. If an upgrade is needed, we’ve got plenty of options to pick from to keep everyone safe on your Sea-Doo watercraft. PFD-CoupleSea-Doo Nylon PFDs are a great value with higher end components for an ideal combination of comfort and safety. The Sea-Doo Neoprene PFDs matches an athletic riding style and can handle rugged daily use. Sea-Doo’s Ecoprene PFDs have all the advantages of Neoprene plus the quick drying benefit of Nylon. The right PFD will fit snugly and comfortably to provide proper buoyancy while in the water.
  2. SPARK-CleaningWater Ready: This may be the first time you’re getting your Sea-Doo watercraft back to the water this season, and if so, now is a good time to get it prepped. Just a couple of months back, we posted our spring-cleaning tips to transition your Sea-Doo watercraft from storage to water. For a quick review of basic inspection and proper cleaning, you can check out that post here. Get your Sea-Doo watercraft prepped beforehand so that you spend all of your vacation time relaxing.
  3. Fueled Up: If you’re traveling to a more remote location, we suggest filling up your Sea-Doo watercraft before leaving. This way you can fill up with quality, fresh fuel. It will also assist in towing to optimize the weight distribution.
  4. Sea-Doo_PAC_2015_Performance_1447_ACProtection your Ride: We’ve all seen the grime that our vehicles can buildup from long road trips. It’s difficult to clean and is unsightly. Once your Sea-Doo watercraft is prepped, one of Sea-Doo’s custom fit covers will help keep it sparkling all the way to your destination.
  5. Getting there: As much care should be given to your trailer as your Sea-Doo watercraft that way you can be sure to get from home to vacationing with ease. Check your tires tread wear & air pressure, trailer lights, and have a professional check your wheel bearings. To add a bit more certainty, grab a Sea-Doo Spare Wheel for your Sea-Doo Move I or II trailer.

Now, get on the road so you can get on the water!

Riding Comfortably with Sea-Doo Suspension


, , , , , , , , , , ,

We know Sea-Doo owners like to take advantage of any riding time that they can during their busy schedules. And, since a Sea-Doo watercraft is so easy to get to the water and back, it’s perfect for quick or extended trips. But, the water can be unpredictable, and as much as we’d like to be able to control the weather to manage the waves, we decided instead to develop an even more optimized ride.

GTXLTDisSea-Doo was the first and has been the only to develop full-rider suspension on a personal watercraft. Models with suspension experience a smoother and more comfortable ride every time even as water conditions vary throughout the day. With suspension, when waters get rough, the rider is cushioned from wind chop and arm fatigue is reduced. So, if you do have the time for an all-day ride, you’ll enjoy it longer. Passengers also love suspension for the extra comfort; whomever you’re living the Sea-Doo life with will want to keep riding with you.

2015-SEA-DOO-GTX-LTD-iS-260-ACTION-2Since every rider has there own preference, there are variations to what Sea-Doo suspension has to offer. The Sea-Doo GTX S 155 has 5.5 inches of manually adjustable suspension. You can enjoy a smooth ride in all water conditions. On the Sea-Doo GTX Limited iS 260, the “iS” stands for Intelligent Suspension. It automatically adjusts compression to water conditions allowing for the greatest range of suspension travel for the smoothest ride possible. The iS system also offers docking mode that automatically lowers the suspension to lower the rider’s center of gravity during slow speed operation for greater stability and raising the rider environment to the normal riding position when underway. The entire riding area moves independently from the hull, and with iControl, you’ll get optimal suspension during your ride. If you’re one that enjoys a long cruise, you will really appreciate this, perhaps even more so Monday morning. FoxShocksAnd, if you’re a performance fanatic, the Sea-Doo RXT-X aS 260 uses superior-grade, high-performance shocks, with full preload and compression manual adjustability. It offers just the right combination for riders who like to challenge offshore conditions but still maintain plenty of control.

No matter which type of rider you are, our suspension options deliver Smooth sailing, Sea-Doo style.
