Sea Doo Innovation Award WinnerBRP won its record-setting eighth National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) Innovation Award at the 2018 Miami International Boat Show for its Sea-Doo GTX Limited. The award honors manufacturers who bring new and innovative products to the boating industry. The luxury flagship GTX Limited model redefines the premium personal watercraft with extended capabilities that enhance the rider experience.

“The Sea-Doo GTX Limited was the most innovative product we saw at Miami International Boat Show this year,” said judges committee Co-Chair Zuzana Prochazka. “The combination of easy access storage, rider ergonomics, and LinQ accessories make it the ultimate adventure watercraft.”

“Sea-Doo has a rich history of innovation in design, engineering and technology, which started 50 years ago when we introduced the world’s first personal watercraft,” said Marc R. Lacroix, Global Marketing Director for Sea-Doo and Ski-Doo at BRP. “We are honored to be recognized for our 8th NMMA Innovation Award. It is a testament to our unwavering commitment to producing industry-leading innovation that allow our customers to escape the everyday.”

The revolutionary new platform on the Sea-Doo GTX Limited delivers a premium on-board experience. Ground-breaking innovation is found throughout, including three industry firsts: a cargo compartment designed for easy access from a seated position, a waterproof Bluetooth audio system, and a reconfigurable rear seat. The GTX Limited also has industry-leading stability and control for the best experience both at speed and at rest.
