BRP is preparing to introduce the iTC (intelligent Throttle Control) system on the SeaDoo 230 models, two new models to its Sport segment, enhanced helm stations of the Challenger 180 and 230 models – all in 2011. Expect the lineup to feature new technologies and colors as well as industry-leading power options.
The Challenger platform is at the center of BRP's Sea-Doo boats. This includes three models of fully equipped, versatile recreational powerhouses. BRP's Sea-Doo Challenger boats have sizes that range from 18-ft to 23-ft (5.4 to 7 meters).
These boats offer bigger living space and increased control on the water with the recently designed helm stations (180 and 230), iTC system now being offered on the Challenger 210 and 230 models. They are also now offered with a wider choice of colors. The iTC system has functions such as ski mode, ECO mode, cruise control and docking mode.
The 2011 Sea-Doo 230 SP also features iTC with ski mode, newly designed dashboard for improved visibility and overall appeal, a folding arch tower, new marine stereo with USB plug and remote at transom, new coloration and custom-matched trailer.
The 210 SP also has been fitted with a full sundeck with Transat seat design. From the Wake family of boats come the Sea-Doo 210 and 230 Wake. Standard equipment include tower mounted board racks, folding arch tower with mirror, cockpit heater with extendable outlet hose, iTC with ski mode, BRP's exclusive WakeBoost system giving 1,000 pounds of weight (454 kilograms) on the 230 and 600 pounds (272 kilograms) on the 210, and rear-facing portside lounge seating.
Yves Leduc, vice-president and general manager, North America division, said that they further refined the new 2011 lineup of Sea-Doo boats to attract more consumers to boating and into the BRP playground. He claims that Sea-Doo boats are the “smartest buy for recreational boaters” because they offer “state-of-the-art technologies, comfort and user-friendly designs.”
