Orlando, Florida August 16, 2016 – BRP has revamped the 2017 Sea-Doo GTI family of watercraft to offer unbeatable price-value as the most affordable, and most fuel-efficient full-size watercraft in the industry. New for 2017, the Sea-Doo GTS, GTI and GTI SE models will be offered with the compact Rotax 900 HO ACE engine and the lightweight and scratch and impact-resistant Polytec hull material.
The Sea-Doo GTS and GTI models become the most affordable full-size watercraft with lower price points than the previous years comparable packages. A 30% increase in fuel efficiency contributes to greater cost savings 1, thanks in part to the lightweight hull being constructed of BRP’s exclusive Polytec material.. Further reducing the weight and lending to the Sea-Doo GTS and GTI models having the lowest fuel consumption in the industry among all full-size watercraft is the Rotax 900 HO ACE engine. The compact 900 HO ACE ensures watercraft riders make the most of their day by riding longer with less fuel stops.
If there were two words to describe the Sea-Doo GTI watercraft family, it would be versatility and value. The GTI models are good at nearly everything a family would like to do on the water and continue to offer best-in-class technologies including the second-generation Intelligent Brake & Reverse (iBR) system. It is the first and only braking system recognized by the U.S. Coast Guard for its contribution to increase recreational boating safety since 2009, and helps the watercraft stop nearly 160 feet (48.75 m) sooner2. The GTI 130 model also slows to 5 mph (8 km/h) from 50 mph (80.5 km/h) in 34.4 feet and 0.5 seconds sooner than competitive models according to Boating Magazine testing.3
BRP is a pioneer in watercraft design from construction to color. The Sea-Doo Recreation segment conveys BRP’s advanced design philosophies through contemporary flowing facet styling and trendsetting coloration. The energy of the Recreation family is conveyed by vibrant colors such as the new Sunrise Orange on the GTI SE models, Manta Green on the GTI model and Orange Crush on the GTS model. Staying true to the versatility of the recreation models, classic Black is the second color option on the GTI SE models while Jet Black Metallic and Deep Pewter Satin dress the GTI Limited 155 model.
BRP’s Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) function features activity-specific power delivery options including Touring, Sport, and ECO modes. The GTI platform also provides a class-leading 30.8 US gallons (116.6 liters) of storage space and best-in-class fuel economy with BRP’s ECO Mode available on all models. ECO Mode automatically determines the most economical power delivery and sets the optimal RPM for greatest fuel economy so riders spend extra time, not extra money, on the water.
The GTI platform also incorporates many ergonomic features designed for rider comfort. BRP’s exclusive inward-angled footwell floors keep the rider’s lower legs/feet in-line reducing ankle fatigue, and the handlegrips come with palm rests enhancing comfort and reducing forearm fatigue. These many exclusive Sea-Doo innovations and features make the GTI family unbeatable in price-value among full-size watercraft offerings in the industry.
