Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) has introduced a line of pontoons called the Sea-Doo Switch on August 12th. The company says it is a pontoon with the feel of a personal watercraft.
What helps the Switch feel like a personal watercraft is the helm. Instead of a steering wheel, you will find a handlebar much like the ones on personal watercrafts.
Much of what you will need are now accessible in a compact gauge on the handlebar, so you won’t even need to lift an arm.
The tri-hull design provides stability and agility, which gives it the feel of a Sea-Doo. It features the acclaimed Sea-Doo iBR (Intelligent Brake & Reverse) making it the first pontoon boat with brakes. This makes docking much easier and intuitive.
“It’s a dynamic pontoon with the heart of a Sea-Doo, and its quick-change deck design can be completely reconfigured to fit a solo fishing trip in the morning, a family picnic at noon and a wakeboard session in the evening,” Annick Lauzon, global marketing director said.
The Switch is available for pre-order today starting at CA $22,499. You can upgrade to Cruise or Sport, with lengths ranging from 13 to 21 feet. All feature ROTAX jet-drive power options from 100 to 230hp.
