Sea-Doo launches new platform for 2018 models

BRP announced a new platform for select models in its 2018 Sea-Doo lineup of personal watercraft. The platform is designed to transform the onboard experience and extend the possibilities of activities riders can do with a Sea-Doo personal watercraft. The new platform is available on seven models across the Sea-Doo GTX, RXT and WAKE PRO families.

To ensure consumers maximum comfort, the new personal watercraft has a smart reconfigurable rear seat that transforms the watercraft into an onboard living room. It changes quickly from a three-seat configuration to a flat lounge area, where two people can face each other for a picnic

Also included is a manufacturer-installed, waterproof Bluetooth audio system. With a swipe of a finger, riders can enjoy their favorite playlists on the stereo while relaxing on their PWC rear deck. There is also improved storage to allow people to enjoy longer periods on the water. The storage includes a waterproof, shockproof compartment for a phone with USB charger, as well as direct-access front storage with no standing required.

“This new Sea-Doo platform brings the personal watercraft to the next level,” said Bernard Guy, SVP global product strategy at BRP. “Everything was ingeniously designed and built to enhance the consumer experience on water. Riding a Sea-Doo watercraft is fun, with this new platform, we extend the exhilaration.”

The new platform’s stability and control starts with a lower center of gravity, which BRP said provides more confidence in rough water, at high speeds, and with three passengers, based on the company’s own internal testing. It is also wider for easier reboarding and movement around the watercraft. This is combined with a new deep-V hull designed to increase performance in rough water and provide better control while cornering.

In addition to the new platform, BRP also unveiled a Sea-Doo SPARK TRIXX 3-UP with extended seat and rear platform. It maintains the same level of fun as the 2-UP model launched last year, but with an additional passenger and tow sports capability.

There are additional enhancements across the entire 2018 Sea-Doo family, including Performance, Luxury, Tow Sports and Recreation segments. Find out more about the complete 2018 lineup – including product specs and additional technical information – at
