Sea-Doo has just defined the word extreme with its all-new 3D model, which is a radical design that allows the rider to change from three positions throughout the day. The 3D allows you to sit back and relax with the built-in backrest, or sit high like a motorbike, or even ride standing up. If you’ve got a family of riders this one craft may just fit all their personalities.

Sea-Doo 3D Captain's Report

One Watercraft to Suit All Your Personalities

Tested by Capt. Tom Shackleford

I suppose you could enhance the Sea-Doo 3D by wearing the goofy glasses you get at the theater. The three dimensions that Sea-Doo has to offer on its all new 3D Personal Watercraft also offers three distinctly different experiences on the same watercraft. Kart, Moto, and Vert.

Seating Positions

For a real sensation of speed, try the 3D with a bucket seat in place, sit down at deck level and go sport- karting on the water… Kart.

Like the idea of a dirt bike on the water? In a matter of seconds, lift the handlebars and unhinge the Motocross- style seat and its pedestal support hidden within… Moto.

Want to shred it? Stand up “old school” style. With no seating configuration in place, the deck is unobstructed and wide open…Vert.

Sea-Doo sticks to the basics with this convertible PWC powering it with a 2 stroke, 2 cylinder fuel injected Rotax motor. Displacement is 782 cc's producing an adequate 110 horsepower. Fuel supply to the cylinders is distributed through a single 56 mm Rotax carburetor. Lubrication is metered through the Variable Ratio Oil Injection system.

Styling is equally simple: The smooth lines of the fiberglass reinforced hull compliment the unobtrusive cowling and integrated handlebars. In this simplicity is the ease to switch over from one dimension to another.

Specs

At 107 inches in length and a beam of 44 inches, the 3D is a compact package. Morphed into its Kart persona, the 3D could limbo - it is a mere 37 3/4" tall. The only difference in weight between all three configurations is the 14 pounds that comes with the addition of the bucket seat for Karting. As such, the 3D is 603 pounds and in either Moto or Vert the scales tipped at 589. In any style, the 3D is for the solo rider.

Total fuel capacity is 8.5 gallons with 1.3 of them in reserve. The 2 cycle oil reservoir has a capacity of one gallon.

Performance

On a steamy South Florida afternoon with light winds and minimal chop the 3D achieved a top speed of 52 MPH carrying 9/10 of a tank of fuel. Of course, to maintain that, the 3D would need 9.5 gallons per hour (GPH) as a burn rate. Cruising along at half throttle the burn rate is diminished by half as well: nearly 38.5 MPH at 5.5 GPH.

While not exactly blistering, the Sea-Doo 3D turned in respectable numbers for our time to plane and 0-30 MPH tests. With an average of 1.75 seconds to plane, an additional 1.55 ticks of the stopwatch put this PWC at 30 MPH.

As with the other Sea-Doo watercraft, the ignition system is controlled through the Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.). This is an ingenious idea that allows one owner to keep the "keys" to up to 8 Sea-Doo vessels with common encoding.

Young adults will be thankful for a transformable 3D and its cost effectiveness (under $7000.00), and experienced riders will appreciate its diversity as well. Oh, and you can leave the funny glasses at the movie theater!
