The new Sea-Doo Speedster SK is a fun mid-sized jetboat with good ski boat features. If you have a waterskier or wakeboarder in the family this is one boat you'll have to look into.

Key Features

    There is of course a standard towing eye for all the water lovers in the family and a retractable boarding ladder allows everyone to get back on board easily and safely. A watertight enclosed bow locker holds skis, boards, wetsuits and more. The helm station has an adjustable mirror for watching skiers plus a special tournament-style speedo that’s calibrated to show the best speeds for pulling wakeboarders or skiers. Reverse is standard on this boat for those tricky situations and tight corners, and the new control steering system gives you an extra RPM boost around the docks. And best of all this hot rod even comes with its own matching trailer.

Sea-Doo 1999 Speedster SK Captain's Report

The Sea-Doo Speedster SK is a fun affordable mid-sized jetboat with good ski boat features. The wakeboarder in the family will love the standard five-foot ski pylon extension that will allow them to catch big air. Since there are no propellers, the driver and skier can feel at ease and safe when getting off and on the jetboat.

Padded bucket seats and grab rails keep everyone secure when carving into tight turns. The throttles and shifter are just like you’d find on a bigger boat, and reverse is standard.

At low speeds, Sea-Doo’s Control Steering System (CSS) helps out by automatically increasing RPM water flow through the pump for better control. The SK’s deep-V, multi-chine hull is designed for excellent tracking while you are towing a skier behind.

The SK’s twin 720 Series Bombardier Rotax water jet pumps combine to produce 170-hp, and they are tuned to provide optimal low-end torque, which is essential in getting skiers out of the water.

Our test boat had a top end speed of 47.4 mph at 6740 rpm, and best cruise was at 28.2 mph at 5000 rpm. With her 40-gallon tank she’s good for a cruising range of 96 miles.

The Speedster SK is an attractable and affordable jetboat that that is sure to turn some heads out on the water.

All fuel consumption numbers are the total for all engines in the boat. Speeds are measured with Stalker ProSports radar gun or GPS. Fuel consumption (gallons per hour) measured with Floscan digital fuel-flow meter or by on-board factory-installed diagnostic instruments. Range is based on 90% of published fuel capacity. Sound levels determined using Radio Shack digital decibel meter on A scale. 68 dBA is the level of normal conversation. Time to plane is measured from start of acceleration to formation of rooster tail behind boat.
