Waverunner VX Sport vs. Seadoo GTI130

Post  xtel on Wed Apr 29 2009, 12:12

I'm just seeing what you guys think about each jetski?

I am leaning more toward the yamaha vx mainly bc of that extra room on the rear section and additionally fuel efficiency. I just dont have any yamaha exp, only seadoo. I am going to be launching and cruising across the gulf of Mexico to fish for some reds and trout. I'm going to purchase 2 (for me and wife) which will lighten the load for each jetski.

Think 130hp is plenty for someone like me?

130hp is plenty for the purpose you need. You're going to be fishing mainly I guess with recreation second? Think of it like buying a car. If you want to go fast, buy a ferrari, if you want a everyday car then you buy something mainstream. 130hp - 155hp are mainstream skis these days. All I would say is go for something after 2004 as technology really came to the forefront from then on, hull and engine wise.

Thanks for the tips guys! Especially the first-hand VX experience. It's hard to not let my inner child come out and buy top of the line when that's not what I need.

I think I'm leaning more toward the VX sport for now, of course, I'm as indecisive as a 5 year old.
