GTI family receives a new hull and new engine option

The 2020 Sea-Doo personal watercraft lineup has been unveiled and the major news is centered around the affordable GTI platform, which received the same hull as Sea-Doo’s flagship models received in 2018.

“People have had an overwhelmingly positive response to the new Sea-Doo platform since it was unveiled for 2018, and we’re thrilled to now bring it to even more models,” said Bernard Guy, Senior Vice President, Global Product Strategy, BRP. “We made the leap and decided that across the board and for the first time, the revolutionary technology would be available on all Sea-Doo GTI recreation watercraft. Now everybody can experience the pinnacle of personal watercraft comfort and stability with unbeatable value.”

So what does the new hull mean for the GTI models? First, the deck is configurable to suit your needs. This means a removable passenger seat so solo riders have more space. Storage space updated, including a large increase in the size of the main compartment and glove box.  A watertight phone box also comes standard.

The new hull is one-inch wider than the outgoing version for improved stability and easier boarding. New seating positions for the rider and passenger offer up a lower center of gravity

Sea-Doo’s vaunted LinQ attachment system makes its way to the GTI models (and every other 2020 Sea-Doo model), providing easy-on, easy-off accessories like coolers to ski pylons.

As for the aforementioned new engine option, shoppers can now opt for a Rotax 170-horsepower mill with ACE technology that offers up improved fuel economy.

Also new is a 4.5-inch digital display with orange/red backlight for good visibility in all lighting conditions. Information like cruise control, driving mode, speedometer, tachometer, hour meter, compass, clock and more are at the pilot’s fingertips.

Four 2020 Sea-Doo GTI models are available – the GTI 90, GTI 130, GTI SE 130, and GTI SE 170. The GTI 90 and 130 are the base models and have all the features we’ve talked about above with either the 90-horsepower Rotax 900 ACE or 130-horsepower Rotax 1630cc engine.

The GTI SE 130 and GTI SE 170 offer premium features like a 100-watt audio system (optional on base models), boarding ladder, speed limiter and slow mode, and two color options.

2020 Sea-Doo Performance Family

2020 Sea-Doo GTR 230

Built for performance-minded riders, the Sea-Doo Performance family includes the GTR, RXP-X 300, and RXT-X 300.

Changes for 2020 include the new hull platform on the GTR. This is the same hull that the GTI models received and offers all the same features. The GTR also gets an updated Rotax 1630 Supercharged engine – a 130cc increase compared to last year. Sea-Doo says this results in improved acceleration. Finally, the GTR receives the new 4.5-inch digital display.

Also new is an 18.5-gallon fuel tank on the RXT-X 300. This larger tank means riders can ride longer and go farther than ever before.

2020 Sea-Doo Spark Family

2020 Sea-Doo Spark Trixx

The Spark family returns largely unchanged for 2020, though there are two new color options – Blue Raspberry/Pear (Spark) and Chili Pepper/Pear (Spark Trixx).  The LinQ system is also available as option on all Spark models.

The most affordable and lightweight PWC in the industry, the Sea-Doo Spark family includes four models – the Spark 2-Up, Spark 3-Up, Spark Trixx 2-Up, and Spark Trixx 3-Up. Engine options are the Rotax 900 ACE-60 (Spark 2-Up), Rotax 900 ACE-90 (Spark 2/3-Up, Spark Trixx 2/3-Up).

2020 Sea-Doo GTX Family

When it comes to luxury touring, the Sea-Doo GTX models are always worth exploring. For 2020, the GTX lineup is mostly unchanged and features four models, the GTX 170, GTX 230, GTX Limited 230, and GTX Limited 300.

The only changes are the larger 18.5-gallon fuel tank, the bigger Rotax 1630 ACE engine in the GTI 170.

But the generous GTX options we’ve been enjoying for years continue on in the 2020 model year, including the available 100-watt audio system, widescreen display, smart storage solution, and reconfigurable seating.

2020 Sea-Doo Wake

2020 Sea-Doo Wake Pro 230

When it comes to pulling skiers and wakeboarders, the Sea-Doo Wake family stands out in the PWC market. Two models are available – the Wake 170 and Wake Pro 230.

New for the 2020 model year, the Wake 170 joins its big brother with the new hull we discussed earlier. As well, the new Rotax 1630 ACE powers the Wake 170, while the new Rotax 1630 ACE supercharged engine delivers the goods for the Wake Pro 230. Finally, the 4.5-inch digital display makes its way to the Wake 170 and the larger 18.5-gallon fuel tank finds a home in the Wake Pro 230.

Wake family standard features all return for 2020, including a retractable LinQ ski pylon, removable wakeboard rack, Ski mode, and optional BRP Audio-Premium System.

2020 Sea-Doo Fish Pro

2020 Sea-Doo Fish Pro

Just introduced last year, the Sea-Doo Fish Pro returns to the lineup for the 2020 model year. This is the first and only factory-designed PWC designed specifically for fishing enthusiasts.

The only change to this still-new model is the larger Rotax 1630 ACE motor that produces 170 horsepower for improved acceleration and overall performance.

Standard features include direct-access front storage compartment, watertight phone compartment, LinQ fishing cooler, fishing bench seat, Garmin ECHOMAP Plus 62cv fish finder, and intelligent throttle control with trolling motor.
