  • iDF is available on more models (like the GTI family)
  • Tech Package comes as standard on the RXT-X 300
  • Some new color schemes
  • Slightly higher prices

Let’s drill into the nitty-gritty and talk about these changes in detail!

2023 Sea-Doo Lineup

There’s no question that the most exciting model in the 2023 Sea-Doo Lineup is the new Explorer Pro 170.

As the name suggests, the Sea-Doo Explorer is intended for adventurers and for professional use.

This machine is virtually a rebranded Fish Pro 170 with a black color scheme and some additions.

It’s built on the extended ST-3 platform, housing the proven Rotax 1630 ACE-170 engine, making this unit the most powerful non-supercharged power option in Sea-Doo’s offering.

Developed and manufactured by Rotax, this fuel-injected, 4-stroke, 1630cc triple delivers 170 HP at 8000 RPM.

This reliable and economical power source in combination with a more comfortable cockpit makes the Explorer Pro 170 great for long-distance rides.

Thanks to its extended LinQ system, it can carry more accessories than its fishing-intended equivalent.

Beyond the basic features, the adventure-focused additions of the Explorer Pro 170 are as follows:

The Tech Package is also available on the Explorer Pro 170 as an option, including BRP’s premium Audio System, a full-color 7.8” wide display, as well as a USB port.

For 2023, this Tech Package comes on the RXT-X 300 as standard.

Besides the Explorer Pro 170, another new ski in the 2023 Sea-Doo Lineup is the RXP-X Apex 300.

This PWC is marketed as a limited-edition model for 2023, which can be exclusively ordered via BRP’s pre-order program before the end of November 2022.

What’s unique about the RXP-X Apex 300 compared to the standard RXP-X 300? In a nutshell, the most distinctive features of the Apex are as follows:

  • Racing Green and Graphite Gray coloration
  • Carbon fiber hood
  • Carbon fiber mirrors
  • Improved seating details and footwell carpets
  • Matching handgrips
  • Premium badging
  • Blacked out logos
  • Hydraulic steering damper
  • Launch control
  • Tech package

An unusual color scheme, carbon fiber elements, and improved details results in a unique head-turning style.

For the best back support, the Apex is marketed with the Ergolock-R race-inspired seat and a passenger seat is available as an option.

Besides a muscular design, another key advantage of this limited-edition RXP-X is its upgraded handling, which involves a hydraulic steering damper and launch control.

The latter can help you to handle the extreme power of 300 ponies. Just press some buttons on the left handlebar, and the Apex will deliver perfect accelerations.

The system also controls the adjustable trim system that sets the jet nozzle into the ideal position.

Ultimately, this feature helps you accelerate instantly like a pro!

But what really distinguishes the Apex from the base RXP-X is the hydraulic steering damper. This feature is matched with a reinforced steering column, which has three setting positions.

The hydraulic damper works just like it sounds by effectively reducing the forces caused by the chop. It ensures less rider fatigue and more comfort, especially at higher speeds.

Besides the special steering system, launch control, and a unique style, the Apex comes with the same body, engine, and features as its base sibling.

It’s worth mentioning that this ski is the first PWC in Sea-Doo’s fleet whose MSRP exceeds the psychological limit of $20,000. It comes with a price tag of $20,999, which makes the Apex the most expensive Sea-Doo for the 2023 season.

Surprisingly, the Canadian manufacturer dropped the GTI 90 for the 2023 season. This entry-level recreation Sea-Doo was built on a standard GTI platform but borrowed its 899cc tripe engine from the Spark series.

This means that the GTI family has shrunk to three models, the GTI 130, GTI SE 130, and the GTI SE 170.

Another piece of good news is that the iDF debris removal system is now available on GTI models as an option.

As far as the rest of the 2023 Sea-Doo lineup goes, we aren’t noticing too many changes except for some “bold new graphics” and higher prices.

This means that the Spark, Spark Trixx, GTX, Wake, and the Fish Pro families, as well as the RXT-X 300 and the GTR 230 return without any noticeable upgrades.

Conclusion

The 2023 Sea-Doo lineup is far less exciting than last year’s when the Canadian manufacturer revealed the exciting Switch pontoon boats and the extended Fish Pro family.

Instead of a plethora of new models and features, the 2023 Sea-Doo fleet returns with only two “new” models and some minor changes, including:

  • New model #1: 2023 Sea-Doo Explorer Pro 170 (a rebranded and upgraded Fish Pro Sport 170)
  • New model #2: 2023 RXP-X Apex 300 (a regular RXP-X 300 with some tweaks)
  • Discontinued model: GTI 90
  • New features: windshield, heavy-duty front bumper, front LinQ support, multi-LinQ plate, heated grips, etc. (available on the Explorer Pro 170)
  • iDF is available on more models (like the GTI family)
  • Tech Package comes as standard on the RXT-X 300
  • Some new color schemes
  • Slightly higher prices

Although we expected more from the new lineup, these days customers are happy to even receive the PWC they ordered at all.

Supply chains face many issues nowadays, causing massive delays and shortages of PWCs  across every major manufacturer.

Sea-Doo’s primary objective is to fulfill every pending order for the next model year within a reasonable time frame.

We are sure that they will do everything they can to make it happen!
