The completely redesigned Sea-Doo RPX-X 300 is the ultimate way to get away from it all. A whopping 67 pounds lighter plus more power than ever makes it one of the fastest production model PWC’s on the water. The RPX-X 300 is all about performance. The t-shaped hull with a deep-v entry combines with a supercharged 300-hp Rotax engine to go from 0 to 60 in less than 3 seconds, with a top speed of 69 mph. A quick-connect rear seat allows a passenger to enjoy the adventure. While it’s essentially a racing PWC, the RXP-X 300 has a practical side, too. In addition to a roomy glove box for phones, keys and other personal items, a large forward storage area holds additional gear. An 18.5 gallon fuel tank gives it a range of about 60 miles, using the digital screen and maritime navigation apps to keep you on course. An optional 100-watt Bluetooth sound system converts it into an oceangoing concert hall; Sea-Doo.com.
