The other day I was invited to try out the newest model Sea-Doo watercrafts. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make the event, but I did get a nice recap of the day – which you can read below:
On Thursday, July 16th journalists started their day bright and early at Leonardo State Marina where they had the chance to test ride two new revolutionary personal watercrafts. The 2009 Sea-Doo RXT iS and the Sea-Doo GTX Limited iS – both with 255 HP, which would beat a Ferraro off the line!
What makes these models so extraordinary is that BRP has created the first watercraft with on-water braking and suspension systems. The safety on these models has even caught the attention of the United States Coast Guard. The Boating Safety Award was presented to BRP by the U.S.C.G. back in February at the Miami Boat Show.
Reporters who attended the demo day took an extended ride through Leonardo, Highlands, Atlantic Highlands and even the Atlantic Ocean. While on the water the journalists had the opportunity to test out the power, suspension, brakes and much much more. We made a pit stop and docked the Sea-Doos at Windansea and grabbed a bite to eat. Everyone who saw the Sea-Doos, did a double take and then came to us with questions, which of course we were happy to answer. At 5 PM we called it a day and packed it in.

Sounds like a lot of fun if you ask me. The next time such an offer pops up, I definitely need to take off of work in order to attend!
