2014 SEA-DOO SPARK 2UP_ACTION4

BRP introduces the all-new Sea-Doo Spark watercraft designed to make any family’s dream of great days on the water possible right now. The 2014 Sea-Doo Spark watercraft leads an entirely new segment of the Sea-Doo lineup designed for the young family looking for simple and accessible fun in a stylish, compact, and lightweight platform. The Sea-Doo Spark model carries with it BRP’s innovative DNA from the industry-leading Sea-Doo brand.

The Sea-Doo Spark is fun

The Sea-Doo Spark model is compact and is the lightest watercraft on the market1 providing a fun and playful ride. It is easy to maneuver, is ideal for short rides on smaller bodies of water and can still be used under rougher conditions by people looking for an exciting or more challenging ride. This model stands out with a stunning new look and comes in a variety of 5 colors and numerous customization options, so everyone can make it their own.

The Sea-Doo Spark is accessible

The new Sea-Doo Spark model is the most affordable watercraft on the market, costing nearly 40% less than the closest model2 and is the most fuel-efficient watercraft in the industry3.  It is economical to operate and maintain, making Sea-Doo ownership accessible to more households. Its compact design and lightweight construction makes it easy to own, easy to tow with many popular compact sedans and simple to store. The Sea-Doo Spark model is powered by the ultra reliable Rotax 900 ACE engine family, the most compact and most economical to run, 4-stroke watercraft engine.

The Sea-Doo Spark is part of a leading brand recognized for innovation.

BRP’s Sea-Doo design and engineering team developed a new concept for the structure of the vehicle to create the lightest watercraft on the market. Named Exoskel, this minimalist architecture gives the Sea-Doo Spark watercraft an open-air upper deck appearance with a framework that consists of two forward swept “arms” securing the handlebar and rider connection area. The Exoskel minimalistic architecture keeps only the essential structural parts in the rider control area and maintains strength and durability. It reduces the weight while creating a modern and cutting-edge design that defines the uniqueness and maneuverability of the Sea-Doo Spark watercraft.

The innovation of the Sea-Doo Spark goes beyond the architectural design and extends into the new materials and processes used to create this new watercraft. Over three years of research and development went into developing Polytec, a proprietary recipe of polypropylene and long glass fibers designed specifically for watercraft hull and deck applications. Polytec, is the “skin” of the Sea-Doo Spark Exoskel providing structural integrity. This material is a recyclable, low density, high-impact resistant, lightweight composite material. Polytec further lowers the overall weight of the watercraft without compromising strength and durability, as has been proven through rigorous, heavy use testing in both fresh and salt water environments including real world ocean impact and specialized crane drop testing.

Powering the innovative Sea-Doo Spark model is a new engine, the ROTAX 900 ACE, 2014 SEA-DOO SPARK_STUDIO - Rotax ACE 900 marine enginethe most compact marine family of engines currently in the watercraft market. Designed specifically for delivering years of reliable fun, the ROTAX 900 ACE is an in-line three-cylinder 4-stroke power plant featuring iTC (intelligent Throttle Control) system and CLCS (Closed-Loop Cooling System). Because the Sea-Doo Spark watercraft is so light, its power-to-weight ratio is close to 50% better than the closest competitive model,4 making it big in terms of fun factor.

ACE stands for Advanced Combustion Efficiency technology and it minimizes mechanical friction at the same time that it improves thermodynamic efficiency for optimal engine performance. This technology combined with the lightweight of the Sea-Doo Spark model allows it to become the most fuel-efficient watercraft available3, with a fuel consumption that’s less than 2 gallons5 per hour. Finally, the Rotax 900 ACE engine is also environmentally friendly. In fact, emissions for the Sea-Doo Spark are close to 13 times lower than similar models from the 90s and early 2000s6 while delivering the same pleasure and responsiveness.
