BRP unveils versatile new pontoon boat
The 2022 Sea-Doo Switch combines aspects of a Sea-Doo with the stability of a pontoon platform.
Quebec-based powersports vehicles, propulsion systems and boats maker BRP Inc. has just introduced the 2022 Sea-Doo Switch, an all-new pontoon boat that the company says combines aspects of Sea-Doos and conventional pontoon platforms.
Described as an “innovative and adaptable platform,” BRP officials say the Switch has a quick-change deck design can be completely re-configured to suit a variety of functions, from fishing to picnicking to wakeboarding.
“Perhaps its biggest point of differentiation – other than its Rotax jet propulsion system and unique, Sea-Doo inspired handlebar steering system – is that the entire deck is made of configurable tiles,” BRP said. “Only the helm is stationary, and the rest of the layout can be changed in seconds to accommodate any adventure with easy-on, easy-off LinQ quick attach tiles. There are almost 100 options available, allowing people to add or remove seating, change table locations, and much more.”
“A tri-hull ensures that fun is at the heart of the experience, with stability and agility allowing people to lean into turns and carve through the water,” they continued. It also… features the Sea-Doo iBR (Intelligent Brake & Reverse) – making it the first ever pontoon boat with brakes – which gives it one of the most intuitive docking experiences in the industry.”
The Sea-Doo Switch comes in two upgrade package options: the Cruise and the Sport, with lengths ranging from 13 to 21 feet. Each features ROTAX jet-drive power options from 100 to 230hp.
