    None. No PWC is a good PWC.

    Stuart,

    I prefer the Sea Doo brand. Ours is an older GTX 4-tec and it has run great for us. Actually looked at a 2013 RTX today and what a fantastic machine. But $14k is a lot for a part-time toy, IMO. Ended up buying my son a 4wheeler instead.

    I've had Kawasakis, Sea Doos, and Yamis.....I REALLY liked my GP1300R so I'm going to go with Yamaha. I'll be in the market for a Super Jet before too long.

    Haven't had a new sit down in quite a while. I would
    think closed loop is better for salt water riding. Most
    vacation spot rental places seem to carry Yamaha
    PWCs.

    We have two Yamaha Super Jets....15 seasons on each, no
    engine problems ever! Best water sports investment we made.
    Note, I don't think you can buy Super Jets anymore except
    if you plan to race them.

    We rent a Yamaha three person for a day while on vacation to get it out of our system. They seem to work well and are fun. PWCs are not allowed to come to our house as the Mobius gets upset.

    Pretty much my feeling. But.....now that I live near the ocean it makes sense to rethink my opposition. I want a water toy that is relatively inexpensive to own and operate that will survive in saltwater. Thought about a center console w/ outboard engine, but too expensive for me right now. My sons love the ocean and have ridden PWCs. So, this is the solution.....I think.

    I only have experiance with the Seadoo brand.

    I am a former owner of a 2005 RXT. Their Rotax engine has been around for awhile which to me is a good thing. I even had the ski pylon put on mine,l OEM part. It was fast and fun. I didn't have any issues with mine. It had the closed loop cooling, which I would think would be a better salt water option. Although riding in the salt, you will still need to rinse off after riding.

    Depending on how high of performance you want, you can also check the fuel requirements. Mine required premium, 93 octane.

    I never liked the vertical waterspout on the yamaha's, and that can be an issue with pulling watersports, the spout lands about the average rope length.

    The Yamaha waterspout is a safety feature....but it can easily be removed, at least it was on their older models.
