2009 Sea-Doo GTX Limited iS 255
The GTX Limited iS 255, equipped with iControl, the world most advanced watercraft system, interactive gauges, a high performance Variable Trim System, 3-up riding and touring seat, will turn countless heads. Of course, with an authoritative 255 hp Rotax 4-TEC engine under the dashing exterior, this PWC will be nothing but a blur anyway.
Our 255 hp Rotax 4-TEC engine is something you truly have to experience to believe. Boasting a mammoth supercharger and external intercooler that ride atop the most horses available on a PWC. Powerful yet efficient, it cranks up the performance to unprecedented levels. CARB 3-Star certified
Intelligent Suspension (iS) allows the hull to move independently of the upper deck, isolating the rider and passenger from the impact of rough water with 6'' of suspension travel. So you can ride longer, with greater comfort and control, through all types of conditions. The suspension comes factory-set for luxury cruising on the GTX Limited iS and readily adapts to fit changing conditions, number of passengers or personal preference. Choose one of nine settings or set it to auto calibration. And do it all on the move, using the rocker switch on the handlebar.
The stepped design of the S3 hull creates a low-pressure zone, reducing drag and keeping the hull glued to the water. This improves handling and top-end speed. And its narrow chine and deep-V design stabilize the watercraft. Lateral wave impact is minimized, resulting in very little roll or change in direction. Also, the innovative material that makes up S cubed actually reduces the overall weight of the hull by 50 pounds. The S3 is 19% lighter than competing manufacturers’ hulls.
Automatic retractable mooring lines are right there when you need them and neatly hidden when you don’t. And having one at the bow and one at the stern allows for quick and easy tie-up at the dock. The hassles of using traditional docking lines are a thing of the past.
The digital information center's easy-to-read LCD panel gives you all the info you need at a glance. Available with up to 28 functions, including analog and GPS speedometers, compass, suspension gauge, cruise control and slow-speed mode indicators, Variable Trim System gauge and presets, and Learning Key setting. And you can customize your display and save your preferences, so you only see what you want to.
Intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR) offers a whole new level of safety and control. Now, with the simple squeeze of a lever, you can stop your watercraft on demand. If the watercraft is moving forward, squeeze the brake to slow down. If the watercraft is stopped, squeeze the brake to go in reverse. And because the throttle and brake controls are both on the handlebar, you never have to come out of the natural riding position.
Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) brings a new level of precision to every riding situation. Your watercraft now starts up in neutral mode, allowing the engine to run without propelling the craft forward. It makes for easier dockside starts and stress-free maneuverability, even in tight areas. An activity-specific cruise control system lets you customize your speed settings. Set the speed and let the system adjust automatically, while you enjoy an easier ride and better fuel efficiency. And along with iBR, iTC make docking stress-free, with the intuitive combination of throttle, neutral and reverse. Well-placed controls let you keep both hands on the handlebars and both eyes on what you’re doing.
A more plush, contoured touring seat offers greater comfort and lower back support for you and your passenger. Ride longer and feel even better after a day on the water. A hinge allows the seat to open vertically and provide easier access to the engine compartment. Offers seating for up to 3 persons.
Ideal to keep gear or cell phone dry; now removable and watertight.
The high performance VTS allows you to adjust the attitude of the watercraft based on rider weight, riding style and water conditions – giving you better control and customized riding characteristics including 2 preset options.
O.T.A.S. monitors the rider's steering input as well as the operational speed and automatically increases engine speed to provide additional power when necessary. This advanced technology continuously monitors engine rpm to determine if the craft is being operated at a low or high speed. If running at idle speed, the system does not engage. If the speed is higher, the system will be functional.
The new tilt steering system allows for a customized, less stressful ride. And when you use the tilt steering to move the handlebar up or down, the multifunction digital information center moves with it. So the gauges are never blocked from your sight.
Ski tow eye for easy and secure attachment of ski rope.
The handlebar isn’t just for the throttle anymore. Now, control of Intelligent Brake and Reverse, Intelligent Suspension, neutral mode and cruise control are all at your fingertips. It’s all completely intuitive. And it’s all designed to let you make changes while on the move, without ever taking your eyes off the water.
Fold-down re-boarding step provides easier and more comfortable re-boarding in deep water.
Sea-Doo watercraft are some of the most environmentally-friendly boats on the water today. In fact, the entire Sea-Doo lineup is CARB 3-STAR certified from the California Air Resource Board for ultra low emission and BRP is the only manufacturer whose entire line-up is CARB 3-STAR certified.
Standard on all models, the exclusive New Sea-Doo Learning Key allows you to limit your speed at your convenience. A great way to save gas and perfect for less experienced riders who want to get used to slower speeds before letting it rip.
Standard on all Sea-Doo watercraft, this is our version of “speak softly and carry a big stick.” Our patented sound reduction system combines a series of resonators, acoustical foam and vibration-absorbing components to make Sea-Doo watercraft some of the quietest on the water.
Unlike open-loop systems, which draw water from the riding environment directly into the engine, the CLCS uses coolant to keep the engine running at the ideal temperature, much like a car’s radiator. Closed-loop cooling also keeps out corrosive saltwater and debris, meaning you’ll be on the water more and in the shop less.
Prevent unauthorized use with yet another innovation standard on all models. Your watercraft is embedded with a unique microchip that is engaged with your lanyard. Simple yet innovative, it’s much easier to use than code systems found on other brands.
