Brief Summary

Sea-Doo brings together classic runabout styling, modern features and the thrill of direct drive with their Challenger Series. The 230 Challenger SE sports many standard features and a few that are definitely innovative. Aside from the obvious value of shallow water capability, safer operation and low bow rise, direct drive saves you time and money on service with no transmission to manage. The model tested had twin 215-hp Rotax 4-TEC engines that were supercharged and intercooled for instantaneous response and performance. Coupled with the optional power windows and standard Fold ‘n Stow center walk-through, the family and a lot of the neighborhood will enjoy your boat!
