The Sea-Doo Brand of Personal Watercraft has been the most winning brand of Runabout in the history of IJSBA Racing. The 785 category of Runabout Racing was dominated by Sea-Doo in the 1990s. Currently, the Sea-Doo Spark is the dominant watercraft in the 1100 Open and 1100 Superstock categories and the Spark is the only watercraft in the Rec Lites category. Sea-Doo watercraft also claim bragging rights for several other reigning World Championships from 2018. Also, they made a PWC for fishing which is apparently quite popular. You can read about that below:
Miami, FL, February 21, 2019 – BRP (TSX:DOO, NASDAQ:DOOO) created a new segment in the personal watercraft industry and won its unprecedented ninth National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) Innovation Award for PWC at the 2019 Miami International Boat Show for its Sea-Doo FISH PRO. The award honors manufacturers who bring new and innovative products that move the boating industry forward. The new recreational sport fishing FISH PRO model makes fishing easier and more accessible with smart design features at an affordable price.
“With fishing being the most popular on-water activity, Sea-Doo is the first to create a purpose-built small craft fishing machine that’s just as happy inshore as offshore,” said innovation award judge and editor of Boating World Magazine, Alan Jones.
“Sea-Doo is world renown for introducing meaningful innovation that enhances the on-water experience,” said Marc R. Lacroix, Global Marketing Director for Sea-Doo and Ski-Doo at BRP. “We are honored to receive our 9th NMMA Innovation Award.

Easy to prepare, launch, load and operate make the FISH PRO easy to own and allows anglers more time to fish.
