As if the most fully-featured watercraft in the industry wasn’t already loaded enough, 2007 marks the arrival of another level of luxury: the 2007 Sea-Doo GTX Limited that has a sleek, sophisticated new look, ultra comfy new touring seat, and the usual amenities you’d expect from our top-of-the-line model.
The 2007 Sea-Doo GTX Limited is powered by the biggest engine in the Sea-Doo range, the 215hp supercharged Rotax 4-TEC engine. This engine will get you humming along your favorite waterway at a good turn of speed, especially when you consider the 2007 GTX Limited is 50 lbs lighter than the 2006 version. Engine temperature is monitored via a closed loop cooling system that utilizes the PWC’s aluminum ride plate as a heat exchanger. This keeps the engine and its coolant at the ideal operating temperature. It does not use external water which means that it helps limit corrosion. This is of benefit to those who’ll use their craft in saltwater areas.
See-Doo prefers a supercharger because it’s driven by the engine itself, and therefore produces instant acceleration. The intercooler simply cools the air before going into the cylinders, increasing efficiency for even more power.
GTX Limited includes a “learning key” safety lanyard that limits the engine to around 5000 RPM, or about 35 mph.
While the engine may be big on performance, it’s certainly not big on sound thanks to Sea-Doo’s D-Sea-Bel sound reduction system. This system uses a combination of vibration absorbing components, foams and resonators to give you a quieter ride.
2006 GTX Limited
For 2007 Sea-Doo has refined the GTX Limited with a new facelift and ergonomic changes. The gauge console is raised for better visibility and a more aggressive appearance. Those that like to stand will appreciate the new wider and taller handlebars in addition to the tilt steering.
This watercraft has more posh features than any other model. Two of the most important ones are the portable Garmin GPS that clips into the glove lid and the built-in depth gauge that should help reduce the amount of sand and rocks sucked up into the pump when in unfamiliar waters.
At the deck everything is visible at a glance, with both analog and digital speed and tachometer displays, depth, fuel level, compass heading, and temperature always posted, important during high-speed evasive maneuvers, as are the dual rear-view mirrors.
The storage space of the Sea-Doo GTX Limited will definitely satisfy your needs. The jet ski has 53 gallon storage compartment: a removable tray on top, keeping important items close at hand, a small backpack lashed into the lid, and a removable soft-sided cooler, log book, safety package, and a watertight, crushproof dry box in the tray, although they could have made the dry box a bit bigger, it only fits a wallet, keys, and cell phone.
2005 GTX Limited
The GTX Limited is a joy to ride. The touring seat is comfortable and well cushioned, and the riding position has been further improved via a wider and higher handlebar set-up. The steering column is also tilt adjustable, so you can set yourself up for maximum comfort and adjustable mirrors increase the rider’s field of view.
The boat handles incredibly well and won’t hop around when you’re really on it. The craft is very easy to maneuver, plus the amount of storage is very helpful. You won’t even get wet unless you jump in the water or there is some serious chop! It performed like a dream. A digital information centre sits just forward of the handlebars and reports on 19 key operating features. The Off Power Assisted Steering System assists maneuverability while the Sea-Doo Learning Key system will allow novice riders to learn to ride with greater confidence and control.
The 2007 Sea-Doo GTX Limited can reach a top speed over 65 mph on a clear day and accelerated from 0 to 30 mph in just 1.9 seconds.
The GTX Limited has one problem: every time the craft is ridden in rough water the supercharger may blow up. I hope that See-Doe will fix this problem whit the next models.
