SEA-DOO GTI IS NOW THE BEST VALUE PWC.
STILL DECIDING BETWEEN THE 2017 SEA-DOO GTI 90, AND 2017 YAMAHA EX SERIES?
LET US HELP YOU DECIDE, BY SHOWING YOU THE REASONS YOU WILL RATHER THE SEA-DOO.
The Yamaha: really, it's on the market to target Spark buyers. Sea-Doo have had great success with the Spark globally, and Yamaha are hurting. Their EX certainly has pro's and con's, but ultimately they've not seen what was coming. The Sea-Doo GTI 90 is the watercraft you didn't know (until you read this) you wanted, that answers the questions even better than anything near this class. Well, that's because nothing is in this class, and it's the perfect middle ground between a sharp nimble Spark, or then Yamaha's EX, or Sea-Doo's own larger and heavier GTI 130 of 2016.
FIRST TIME ON A PERSONAL WATERCRAFT?
The GTI is ideal for first time buyers, who are nervous about being on the water, or ownership where new tasks are now required to take care of the new toy, or simply love the idea of a Spark and have found it smaller than their prefences when finally seen in the flesh on the showroom floor.
SOME GREAT POINTS WORTHY OF READING ABOUT:
The GTI offers very low cost of ownership (amazing fuel range, affordable servicing, great fuel economy). To buy one is not offensive, especially when on sale. It's easy to ride, with Sea-Doo's patented iBR, where you have reverse, brake and neutral all without heavy and acquard levers, and all at a flick of the finger at your grips.
The GTI has better fuel autonomy for a full-size PWC thanks to the proven Rotax 900 HO ACE engine and more fuel capacity than EX Deluxe. (+10L). It means longer rides, less stops at the fuel station and more money saved.
It comes with ECO mode which enables 35% better fuel efficiency.
Yamaha Requires a 10 and 50 and 100 hour service for all models (costs ~$1.5k) while Sea-Doo only Requires 50 hour or 1 year service (whichever comes first)
And, the Sea-Doo is the only watercraft with Closed Loop Cooling that keeps out corrosive saltwater and debris that means less required maintenance and more time on the water.
Programmable Learning key and digital encoded security system
Scratch resistant polytec hull. Convenient for first time buyers that will most likely scratch hull on their fists days out in the water.
Second generation of IBR for an easier stop and peace of mind.
More storage capacity to bring extra equipment during your ride. +77 Litres versus EX Deluxe.
Less roll and pitch because of the longer and wider platform than EX. (+30 cm longer and 12 cm wider).
Better balance on the PWC because of lower center of gravity provided by the mass distribution and height of the seat.
Similar acceleration and top speed. Sports mode available.
More pleasure in longer rides thanks to the plush seating and handlegrips with palm rest.
Easier to manoeuvre outside and inside the water due to its reduced weight (only +20 kg heavier than EX)
Drier ride thanks to built-in anti-splash details of the hull.
More place and more stability for 3 adults. 272 kg rider capacity versus 240 kg of Yamaha. (+30 cm longer and 12 cm wider).
