Video: With a passion for PWC riding and clean waterways, volunteers gathered to collect trash at the Sea-Doo Clean Sea project in Miami and Saint Petersburg, Florida over the Earth Day weekend.

Clean Sea Project: Clean Waterways For All to Enjoy

Sea-Doo enthusiasts, and Sea-Doo X-TEAM racers collected nearly two dumpsters worth of trash in Florida as part of the Earth Day weekend Sea-Doo Clean Sea Project.

To mark Earth Day and celebrate Sea-Doo’s 50th Anniversary, we gathered about thirty owners of PWCs – passionate people determined to make a change – to clean up  beaches in Miami and Saint Petersburg. This clean-up effort was to keep our waterways trash-free, so that everyone can enjoy the beauty of nature. Hundreds of pounds of debris, including mattresses, old shoes, foam, fiberglass, hundreds of cans and bottles were collected from area islands and shorelines.

PWC enthusiasts from area watercraft clubs, and Sea-Doo race team members of all ages volunteered. The two-hour effort was hosted by Sea-Doo with support from Waste Management. Sea-Doo provided all Clean Sea Project volunteers with gloves, trash bags, clean up caps.

Cleaning the shoreline today for a cleaner waterway tomorrow for all to enjoy.

Group of Clean Sea volunteers cleaned up lots of trash and debris – including this large life preserver. After the clean up only beautiful beaches and shorelines remained – no more trash.

Everyone is invited to participate everyday and support this Clean Sea Project effort in their community. We hope this can lead to a movement among a network that works together for something bigger than us.

1968-2018: 50 Years of Sea-Doo Watercraft

Tags

,

This year, we celebrate our 50th anniversary and we’re taking a look back at the innovation, design and evolution of our watercraft.

From the first Sea-Doo watercraft launched in 1968 to the 2018 debut of our award-winning GTX 300 Limited – with a revolutionary hull platform design that allows watercraft riders to go further and experience more, we’ve always been driven by a passion for design, a commitment to technological innovation and our desire to provide more people, more fun on the water.

Over that 50-year period, Sea-Doo has launched a fleet of benchmark setting watercraft models and established a multitude of innovation milestones.

50 Years of Sea-Doo History

1968

In 1968, the first mass-produced, water jet-powered, sit-down personal watercraft was introduced as a Sea-Doo and with its launch – it launched an industry that has produced nearly two million personal watercrafts.

Late ’60s advertisement for “Sea-Doo the Jet-Powered Aqua Scooter.”

The first Sea-Doo watercraft was introduced as a two-seat model powered by an air-cooled, 320cc Rotax engine. To prove its capabilities, Bombardier CEO and President at the time, Laurent Beaudoin and his management team rode new Sea-Doo watercraft from Montreal to New York City, a trip with over 430-miles through Lake Champlain and down the Hudson River.

At the time of its introduction, the first Sea-Doo was truly an innovative and futuristic concept which made a big splash with water enthusiasts. As a matter of fact, the 1968/1969 model was a pop culture hit and was featured in a commercial from Fanta that aired in 1970.

Sea-Doo riders added to the podium count with Kasza finishing as the runner up in Pro Open. In Pro GP it was UK’s prolific James Bushell finishing second and Marcus Jorgenson of Denmark completing the X-TEAM podium sweep finishing in third. Kylie Elmers also added another Pro Women’s championship to her resume aboard her Sea-Doo Centre backed RXP-X 300. The event, attended by the top riders in the world, proved the dynasty of performance dominance lives with the Sea-Doo T3 hull equipped watercraft models.

Test Rides on the new, 2018 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300 and GTX Limited.

Ready to carry the X-TEAM winning legacy to endurance racing is the 2018 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300 model with all-new ST3 hull. The new Sea-Doo RXT, GTX, and WAKE PRO watercraft models made their public debut at IJSBA World Finals in Lake Havasu City, AZ where guests were able to test ride the new platform featuring the ST3 hull. Numerous racers and performance enthusiasts said this new platform would be the one to beat in 2018 in part because of its incredible rough water stability and lowered rider center of gravity.

 

Select X-TEAM racers showcased the performance and specifically the stability and precise handling of the new RXT-X 300 in the Sea-Doo Bounty Invitational event. The Sea-Doo Bounty is a racer contingency program that pays Sea-Doo watercraft racers extra money for top finishes and includes a special World Finals event. Florida’s Erminio Iantosca and Australia’s Gee Greenland competed in the Sea-Doo Bounty ‘Pop Man’ Invitational final where both riders rode the new 2018 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300 model around the World Finals track while having to pop several buoys in attempt to post the fastest one-lap time. Greenland showcased the RXT-X 300 stable and precise handling abilities the best by narrowly edging Iantosca by a mere three tenths of a second to claim the $1000 bonus.

NEW Sea-Doo WAKE PRO 230

Stability, Power and Music to Tow like a Pro

WAKE PRO 230_DSC07630_MY18

2018 Sea-Doo WAKE PRO 230

The Sea-Doo WAKE PRO 230 is the ultimate tow sports machine, destined to be the watercraft of choice for those who demand peak tow performance on the water. It is based on an entirely new platform introduced by Sea-Doo on select 2018 models, which provides a revolutionary on-board experience and industry-leading stability and control.

The Sea-Doo WAKE PRO 230 is powered by a supercharged 230 horsepower Rotax® 1500 HO ACE engine. It can carry up to three riders and reach a top speed of 65mph (105 KM/H). Available colors include Teal blue and lava red.

^Performance numbers based on BRP internal testing in optimal conditions.

Superior Stability and Control

The new platform’s industry-leading stability and control starts with a lower center of gravity, which provides more confidence in rough water, at high speeds, and with three passengers. It is also wider for worry-free re-boarding and movement around the watercraft, and there’s up to a 90-pound weight reduction from previous model years. Combine that with a new, deep-V ST³ hull that increases performance in rough water and provides better control while cornering, and riders have the best of all worlds in any condition.

Powerful Audio System (optional)

A powerful, 100-watt stereo is a cornerstone of the on-board experience. It is the world’s first Bluetooth, fully-integrated waterproof watercraft audio system. It features 100 watts of total power, is built to withstand harsh watercraft environments, has Bluetooth connectivity, and its external playback controls ensure the perfect song is always on deck.

Ingenious Storage

Sea-Doo WAKE PRO 230 has a spacious 27-gallon (102.5 L) direct-access front cargo compartment designed for easy access to all gear from a seated position – simply raise the handlebar and reach in. There is also a waterproof, shockproof compartment with an optional USB charger accessory that allows phones to stay charged and ready to go. A new LinQ quick-attach rear cargo system is also standard, allowing for simple, easy-snap accessory connection in seconds without tools.

Available LinQ accessories:

  • NEW LinQ Ski Pylon: High-rise pylon with built-in grab handles for the spotter, which can be installed or removed in 30 seconds.
  • Fuel Caddy: Holds up to 4 gallons (15L) of fuel in an easy-to-pour canister.
  • Cargo Bag: Semi-rigid, 5.5-gallon (21L) storage that can stack on top of the fuel caddy.
  • Cooler: Rigid, durable and weather-resistant cooler that keeps 4.2 gallons (16L) of content fresh and cold. It also acts as a table between reconfigured seats for on-water picnics.

 Reconfigurable Ergolock Seating

When it’s time to relax, a revolutionary reconfigurable rear seat transforms the ride into a living room on the water. When riding, the Ergolock seat provides unmatched control, handling and comfort by letting riders lock in and use their legs, making them feel at one with the machine, and riders can quickly change from a 3-seater configuration to a flat lounge area when stopped to enjoy the surroundings. Two riders can face each other for a picnic lunch, or when removed, the larger, flatter rear deck makes re-boarding and prep for tow sports easier and more stable.

The WAKE PRO 230 comes equipped with all standard features, and as well as:

  • Modular Ergolock Seat
  • Tilt Steering
  • High-performance Variable Trim System (VTS)

In 2018, we’ve taken everything we know as the world leader in personal watercraft to construct the ultimate range of high-performance models.

All-new Sea-Doo RXT® models redefine how riders pursue the ultimate thrill. They are on an entirely new and revolutionary platform, which is the biggest news in the performance segment.

The RXT’s all-new platform reinvents the personal watercraft ownership experience.

Superior Stability and Control

The new platform’s industry-leading stability and control starts with a lower center of gravity, which provides more confidence in rough water, at high speeds, and with three passengers. It is also wider for worry-free re-boarding and movement around the watercraft, and there’s up to a 90-pound weight reduction from previous model years. Combine that with a new, deep-V ST³ hull that increases performance in rough water and provides better control while cornering, and riders have the best of all worlds in any condition.

Powerful Audio System (optional)

A powerful, 100-watt stereo is a cornerstone of the on-board experience. It is the world’s first Bluetooth, fully-integrated waterproof watercraft audio system. It features 100 watts of total power, is built to withstand harsh watercraft environments, has Bluetooth connectivity, and its external playback controls ensure the perfect song is always on deck.

Ingenious Storage

Sea-Doo RXT models have a spacious 27-gallon (102.5 L) direct-access front cargo compartment designed for easy access to all gear from a seated position – simply raise the handlebar and reach in. There is also a waterproof, shockproof compartment with an optional USB charger accessory that allows phones to stay charged and ready to go. A new LinQ quick-attach rear cargo system is also standard, allowing for simple, easy-snap accessory connection in seconds without tools.

Available LinQ accessories:

  • Fuel Caddy: Holds up to 4 gallons (15L) of fuel in an easy-to-pour canister.
  • Cargo Bag: Semi-rigid, 5.5-gallon (21L) storage that can stack on top of the fuel caddy.
  • Cooler: Rigid, durable and weather-resistant cooler that keeps 4.2 gallons (16L) of contents fresh and cold. It also acts as a table between reconfigured seats for on-water picnics.
  • Ski Pylon: High-rise pylon with built-in grab handles for the spotter.

 Reconfigurable Ergolock Seating

When it’s time to relax, a reconfigurable rear seat transforms the ride into a living room on the water. When riding, the Ergolock seat provides unmatched control, handling and comfort by letting riders lock in and use their legs, making them feel at one with the machine, and riders can quickly change from a 3-seat configuration to a flat lounge area when stopped to enjoy the surroundings. Two riders can face each other for a picnic lunch, or when removed, the larger, flatter rear deck makes re-boarding and prep for tow sports easier and more stable.

 The RXT 230 comes equipped with all of the standard performance features as well as:

  • Modular Ergolock narrow racing seat
  • Tilt steering
  • Exclusive Quick-Attach Rear Cargo System (LinQTM)

 Additional Technology Detail

iBR (3rd Generation, available on models with the new platform)

Recognized by the U.S. Coast Guard for improving boat safety since 2009 and now in its third generation, the Sea-Doo exclusive iBR (Intelligent Brake and Reverse) system allows riders to stop up to 160 feet (48 m) sooner than watercraft not using a brake. Furthermore, thanks to a redesigned reverse gate, maneuverability when braking and handling when in reverse, are greatly improved. With both hands on the handlebars, riders can engage forward, neutral, and reverse for stable, worry-free maneuvering at low speeds.
