Orlando, FL., August 16, 2016 – BRP (TSX: DOO) continues to expand and improve its industry-leading watercraft lineup with the introduction of new Sea-Doo models and a new Rotax Advanced Combustion Efficiency (ACE) power plant. The 2017 Sea-Doo line introduces a new way to play with the Sea-Doo SPARK TRIXX, an unbeatable price-point with new GTS/GTI models and more performance in the mid-range with a GTR-X 230 powered by a new Rotax 1500 HO ACE engine.

“The Sea-Doo watercraft line has never been stronger,” said Anne Bélec, SVP Global Brand, Communications and PAC at BRP. “By offering new models that continue to focus on rider needs such as affordability and efficiency, and of course fun, more people can find the right model for them and make the dream of owning a Sea-Doo watercraft a reality.”

The SPARK TRIXX model is the Sea-Doo watercraft that changes the game, and invents new ones, with features that leverage the light and nimble handling of the SPARK model to offer new ways to play on the water.

The 2017 SPARK TRIXX model comes equipped with numerous innovations including handlebar with adjustable riser, step wedges and extended-range Variable Trim System (VTS), all of which help riders perform tricks like a pro.

2017 Sea-Doo GTS and GTI models are the lightest, most fuel-efficient and offer the greatest value of any full-size watercraft on the market. Each features a compact and efficient Rotax 900 HO ACE engine and lightweight and tough Polytec hull material, which has proven performance and durability throughout the past three years in the industry’s best-selling model, the Sea-Doo SPARK watercraft.

Also new to the Sea-Doo lineup for 2017 is our Rotax 1500 HO ACE engine. Thanks to its ACE design, the 1500 HO ACE offers more mid-range performance, produces 15 more horsepower than the previous generation and is optimized for regular fuel instead of premium gas. This new engine also features a low-maintenance supercharger. The Rotax 1500 HO ACE powers the 2017 Sea-Doo GTR-X 230, as well as the GTR 230, WAKE PRO 230 and GTX Limited 230 models.

The Sea-Doo GTR-X 230 watercraft extends the brand’s X-package offering to a new model and includes the exclusive Ergolock system, which allows riders to better connect to the machine during riding.

Mastercraft Has Your Back with Dockstar

New Innovation Brings Confidence to Inboard Boat Handling.

VONORE, Tenn. (June 21, 2016) – MasterCraft (NASDAQ: MCFT) claims another towsports industry-first with today’s unveiling of its revolutionary new DockStar Handling System that enables boat drivers of any ability level to confidently drive in reverse and more easily navigate tight docks and crowded marinas.

MasterCraft’s engineering team conquered two equally important charters with the innovative DockStar Handling System: enable drivers to control a boat in both directions in reverse and improve the docking and maneuverability capabilities of an inboard drive MasterCraft. The innovative DockStar Handling System enables this through a pair of low-profile, flanking rudders that enable port-side reverse control, which was previously unattainable with inboard towboats, while also greatly assisting during docking and controlling the vessel at low speeds.

Drivers used to traditional inboard handling will be amazed at the boat’s ability to reverse both port and starboard without having to compensate while newcomers to the inboard category, especially from the outboard or stern drive category, will instantly feel comfortable maneuvering in even the tightest spaces.

“MasterCraft and its progression are about making time on the water easier,” said Terry McNew, President and CEO of MasterCraft. “After we identified a way to make boating with a MasterCraft even better for our customers, we put our team of experienced designers and naval architects to work. The DockStar Handling System improves the on-water experience for boaters and effectively removes any last entry barriers to buying an inboard towboat for owners who typically have preferred the handling and maneuverability of a traditional outboard or stern drive configuration.”

The patent-pending DockStar Handling System is exclusive to MasterCraft towboats and is available on most 2017 models. The innovative new steering system will be but one of more than a dozen new upgrades set to be announced as part of the 2017 model year lineup in early July.

The DockStar Handling System is the latest industry-changing innovation introduced by MasterCraft as part of the company’s long-standing legacy of watersports progression. MasterCraft has won five NMMA Innovation Awards, IndustryWeek’s prestigious Best Plant in North America Award and served as the official towboat for countless world records and world championships.
