    Today you can buy, brand new, a compact Seadoo Spark or Yamaha EX. Or a Yamaha standup. And they are fun rides. SeaDoo has multiple hulls in-between the Spark and their biggest model.

    I will disagree that RiDE (or Seadoo iBR) is something to be dismissed as fancy or some sort of ‘bells and whistles’ unnecessary feature.

    I have ridden many watercraft without reverse, and I can handle them around docks and tight maneuvering spaces. Rarely used reverse on my own machines, even when docking. Just too crude an input.

    2020 has been a strange year for used PWC prices. And boats. Basically anything that let people get outside their house and away from others.

    I do not worry about my Yamaha SVHO supercharger ‘exploding’. Not at all. If anything, that is/was mostly a Seadoo thing.

    I have never owned a 750 Polaris. All of mine were 1200’s, and all but one...

    Apparently Yamaha did revise the supercharger clutch for 2021.

    Word is that the new clutch can also be retrofitted to the prior generation SVHO engines.

    Seadoo makes and sells a lot of Spark models. They are not luxurious. They are inexpensive, basic watercraft.
