Bring the family. Bring the friends. Bring the fun Think about everything your family needs in a sport boat. Space for all your people. Space for all your stuff. Safety. Value. Now think about the Sea-Doo 230 Challenger SE. With standard features like a Fold n' Stow door, reboarding ladder, snap-in carpet, and 6-speaker satellite-ready AM/FM/CD stereo with MP3 port, you get all the extras you need at no extra cost. And with your choice of a 430-hp or best-in-class 510-hp engine, you won't sacrifice performance for that affordable price. While 60 cubic feet of storage space and seating for 12 give you the versatility to bring along the tubes, the gear—or anything else you need for a great day on the water. At the core of every Sea-Doo sport boat is the innovative Direct Drive Jet Propulsion System. Unlike conventional stern drives, it generates a concentrated, powerful stream of water that not only propels the boat but steers it too. Direct drive delivers an on-water experience that will leave you feeling both in control and breathless. The jet propulsion system has minimal bow rise and faster planing for increased visibility of what is ahead. Its prop-free design creates a safer swimming environment with no exposed sharp edges. And it minimizes draft so you can ride in shallower waters. Plus, our exclusive Closed-Loop Cooling System helps protect your engine from salt, gunk and corrosion, allowing you to ride in both fresh and saltwater environments The Direct Drive Advantages The Sea-Doo Direct Drive Jet Propulsion System is like nothing else on the water. That's because the Rotax engine that powers it was conceived specifically for marine use and not adapted from the automotive world. Combined with direct drive technology, it provides more concentrated power, faster planing, less draft, less maintenance and more peace of mind. It's the best you can get, and it's on every Sea-Doo sport boat - the smartest buy in boats. NUMBER ONE FOR SO MANY REASONS Sea-Doo sport boats are one of the best selling boats on the planet. And why wouldn't they be? Sea-Doo sport boats offer more features, more horsepower, more safety and more peace of mind than any other boat out there. Simply put, Sea-Doo sport boats are the smartest buy in boats. That peace of mind and increased safety come from the Sea-Doo Direct Drive Jet Propulsion system. It operates without exposed props, increasing safety for swimmers and decreasing maintenance costs for owners. And it gets your Sea-Doo sport boat on plane faster than a stern drive boat, providing a clear, safer view for the driver. Plus, the shallow draft gets you to more places without worries. Sea-Doo sport boats also save you money in so many ways. You'll pay one-third less to upgrade your engine on a Sea-Doo sport boat than you would for an upgrade on a competitor's boat. And as you've come to expect from Sea-Doo sport boats, more of the features you pay extra for on other boats come standard. Add in plenty of space to play and more space than ever to stow your gear, and your boating experience will be driven to a whole new level. DIRECT POWER for Maximum Responsiveness: While conventional props disperse water in a wide pattern, generating less forward motion, the Direct Drive Jet Propulsion system concentrates it into a powerful stream. This both propels and steers the boat. The result is unmatched responsiveness, both when accelerating and maneuvering. You truly feel connected to your water experience. Less Draft for More Freedom: A stern drive boat makes it difficult for you to explore shallow areas. You don't want to cause costly damage to the props or the outdrive. But with a Sea-Doo sport boat's concealed impeller, you've got a compact, 12-inch draft to work with. Faster Planing for Increased Visibility and More Tow Fun: Thanks to the Direct Drive Jet Propulsion System, a Sea-Doo sport boat pops quickly on plane, with less of the cumbersome bow rise of some stern drive models. Greater Safety: A Direct Drive Jet Propulsion system operates with an internal impeller, not external propellers. No external propellers means no sharp edges while swimming, skiing or wakeboarding. When it comes to your family's safety, why take chances? More Horsepower: Nothing packs as much power into as compact a package as the proven, trusted, electronically fuel injected, supercharged, intercooled (SCIC) Rotax 4-TEC engine platform. Smaller than traditional stern drives, it frees up space for other uses, like storage. It also frees you from corrosion worries, even when operating in saltwater, thanks to the Closed-Loop Cooling System (CLCS). The Industry's Only Closed-Loop Cooling System: A trademark feature of the Rotax engine is the Closed-Loop Cooling System (CLCS). Fuel Efficiency: Comparable horsepower and comparable fuel consumption than a stern drive but more torque, better acceleration and much more fun. Smartest Buy: Sea-Doo sport boats put stern drives to shame. With comparable horsepower and fuel consumption, they are quicker to plane, accelerate faster and offer sports car-like handling - giving you more performance, more HP per dollar, more safety and a lot more fun for less money. Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.): Prevent unauthorized use with this feature. D-SEA-BEL Sound Reduction System reduces sound levels, making Sea-Doo sport boats some of the quietest on the water.
