Captain's Report

Captain's Report By Capt. Greg Thornton

Blue and Orange Seadoo GTI SE 170

Sea-Doo designed the GTI platform to be versatile with its three-up seating and LinQ accessory system.

The GTI SE 170 is a new platform for the 2020 season, and Sea-Doo has given us the option of two engine packages. In addition, consumers can choose from two color schemes as well – Ice Metal and Orange Crush, and Beach Blue Metallic and Lava Grey. Plus, the new GTI is designed to be as versatile as ever, giving owners the freedom to rapidly accessorize, hop on and ride – solo or with a crew of three.

 

Orange Crush Seadoo GTI SE 170

The GTI boasts a 3-cylender Rotax® 1630 ACE engine with the optional choice of 130 or 170ccs.

A few key features which define the GTI are:

  • iTC – the intelligent throttle control system
  • iBR – the intelligent braking system
  • CLCS – closed loop cooling system

Drilling down a bit deeper, the iTC has four different driving modes:

ECO Mode – which automatically determines the most economical power delivery

Speed Regulator Mode – as the name suggests, this set-it-and-forget-it mode will, depending upon the activity, set the specific speed for cruising, tow sports, navigating no-wake zones, etc.

Sport Mode – a mode that will provide the top-end performance for the GTI

Ski Mode – which provides smooth and predictable power, ensuring consistency and safety for the driver as well as those on the other end of the tow rope.

Mission

The goal of the GTI was to design a safe and stable personal watercraft that could safely accommodate three persons and that would allow for a preparedness for a wide range of recreational activities - in a moment’s notice.

The speakers are out of the knee-strike zone, the Ergolock Touring Seat is very comfortable, and all of the controls and console features are spaciously laid out and unmistakably labeled.

 Several major features on the GTI SE 170 are:

  • BRP Audio-Premium System      
  • Boarding ladder
  • Watertight phone box
  • Swim platform with integrated LinQ™ system
  • Large front storage

Design

Sea-Doo lowered the overall center of gravity, the internal storage compartment space, and the passenger position the seat, footwells, and handlebars. Together with the new Polytec 2.0 hull design, the GTI provides for a much more stable ride.

The GTI’s new Polytec 2.0 hull design is 1” wider, lighter, and is bonded.

In addition, the sponsons on either side aid in the overall stability and ride.

Unlike a molded hull, the top and bottom are bolted together.

If in the event something needed to be replaced, it would be as simple as unbolting the two pieces and replacing the necessary mold.

Ergonomics

Ergonomically speaking, the GTI is designed to be form fitting to the rider. 

Captain, Captain Greg, BoatTest.com, boat test, young captains, 2020 Seadoo GTI SE 170, new seadoo, orange crush seadoo, orange seadoo, beach blue metallic and lava grey seadoor, GTI SE 130, GTI SE 170, 2020 Recreation, Personal Water Craft, BRP, Ergolock, VTS, LinQ, watertight phone box, three person seadoo

Once seated upon the Ergolock Touring Seat, the riders three critical points of contact – the feet, hips, and hands are comfortably and ergonomically stationed.

The feet are planted back or forward in their position; the hips can be relaxed or in tight.

The palm rests help to lessen the fatigue on the rider’s hands and made a huge difference after our day of riding.

Additional riders have grab handles.

The ski pylon and stirrups help the spotter remain safely in place.

Sea-Doo decided to do away with any pull-up cleats that may snag or stub a toe. Instead they’ve installed built-in arches on either side of the handlebar base.

There also aren’t any drain plugs –the GTI only requires a little throttle and any water contained will slip out the back of the footwells. 

Performance 

Testing the GTI SE 170 was a welcomed addition to our usual tests. It was fun, fast, and nimble to say the least. It really stuck to the water and as we discovered, is quite capable of being fully accessorized for a long adventure or a quick rip around. 

Captain, Captain Greg, BoatTest.com, boat test, young captains, 2020 Seadoo GTI SE 170, new seadoo, orange crush seadoo, orange seadoo, beach blue metallic and lava grey seadoor, GTI SE 130, GTI SE 170, 2020 Recreation, Personal Water Craft, BRP, Ergolock, VTS, LinQ, watertight phone box, three person seadoo

The GTIs “3-up” seating allows for a driver and two passengers or a weight capacity of 600 lbs. (275 kg).

For starters, each GTI has its own unique security key FOB, which when inserted unlocks and allows usage of the engine ignition. 

Captain, Captain Greg, BoatTest.com, boat test, young captains, 2020 Seadoo GTI SE 170, new seadoo, orange crush seadoo, orange seadoo, beach blue metallic and lava grey seadoor, GTI SE 130, GTI SE 170, 2020 Recreation, Personal Water Craft, BRP, Ergolock, VTS, LinQ, watertight phone box, three person seadoo

Without it, the GTI won’t start. Adversely, removing the FOB cuts power to the engine.

There’s a RED engine STOP button on the left handlebar which is the usual means of cutting power to the engine.

The GTI SE 170 has an LOA of 130.6” (331.8 cm), a width of 49.2” (125 cm), and a height of 44.8” (113.7 cm). Its dry weight is 739 lbs. (335 kg) and its fuel capacity is 15.9 gallon (8.8 L). 

The GTI was easy to get use to and left us feeling like seasoned pros in no time. There was no jarring nor unforeseen pulls in any direction. We felt well connected to the seat and the ride was smooth. 

Captain, Captain Greg, BoatTest.com, boat test, young captains, 2020 Seadoo GTI SE 170, new seadoo, orange crush seadoo, orange seadoo, beach blue metallic and lava grey seadoor, GTI SE 130, GTI SE 170, 2020 Recreation, Personal Water Craft, BRP, Ergolock, VTS, LinQ, watertight phone box, three person seadoo

We put the GTI into some tight banks and turns. All in all, the hull felt very rigid and stable and the ride was controllable and predictable.

The GTI SE 170 has tremendous snap going into and coming out of turns. There’s very little delay if any when throttling up and out of turns. 

Crossing Waves

We crossed waves and wakes with ease and never experience any hard shock absorption.

If riders want to remain dry while riding the GTI, that won’t be an issue – unless it’s raining.

The GTI cut through the water and sent the spray off the back and out to the sides.

In the acceleration test, we went from zero to 50 mph / 80.47 kph in 5.3 seconds and reached an overall top speed of 53 mph / 85.30 kph.

We also wanted to see what the lower center of gravity did to the buoyancy. Standing in one footwell, we attempted to list the GTI and found it to be quite stable.

The fuel fill is located beneath the front storage hatch and the GTI SE 170 has an overall fuel capacity of 15.9 gallon (60 L). We also discovered that Sea-Doo decided to locate the fuel fill here because it meets ECO guidelines – that is, were any fuel to spill during fueling, it would essentially be contained within the compartment and not run into the environment.
