Arrow Seado or Suzuki Jet Boat

I have a friend looking to buy a 23' or 24' jet boat.

Between the two which may have a better hull to handle rough stuff? Limitations in that regard?

Also, Rotax vs. Suzuki engines. Which is better?

Thanks!

+1 on the Yamaha. Much better reliability.

I owned two Sea Doo watercrafts and they were awsome! Also worked on other pwc to finance that habit and seems if mantained they were all great machines.

Take a look at the watercraft rental companies and see what the majority of them own. They purchase Yamaha for a reason.


I almost purchased one of the Jet Boats last year prior to finding my current boat. I went to the largest dealer in our region. They deal in both SeaDoo and Yamaha. First thing the salesperson said when I told him I was interested in one was, "you need to look at the Yamaha first, we have less problems with them".

Having spent 15 years racing PWC this was always a well known fact in the industry.

Might send a PM to Cattitude here on OSO. He just purchased a Yamaha Jet Boat last week. He's a VERY picky man. Ask him why he chose what he did.
