    SeaDoo GTI 130 versus Yamaha VX Cruiser

    I am going to be buying a second PWC and am trying to decide between the SeaDoo GTI 130 and the Yamaha VX Cruiser.

    I currently own a Kawasaki STX 12F and it has been a reliable ski but I have never been happy with how it handled choppy water or how well it turned at slow speed.

    I owned a SeaDoo 1999 GTX and I loved how it handled and turned but it was unreliable due to the 951 engine.

    My gut tells me not to go with the SeaDoo but they are offering a 4 year warranty.

    How does the Yamaha handle compared to SeaDoo?

    I don't need a ski to go 70 mph..... but I am a little concerned that the Yamaha engine is slightly smaller than what is in my STX 12F. The 12F is 1200 cc and the Yamaha is 1052 cc. Will I notice the difference?

    Re: SeaDoo GTI 130 versus Yamaha VX Cruiser

    My wife currently has a vx cruiser and after four years only oil change and one set of plugs and only replaced them just to do it not that it needed them. If you check there are many of them out there with over 1000 hours on them. I know that everone has a opinion but just mine. Thank You Tooth Ferry

    You'll notice start up cavitation. But, not much else.

    However, while the VX will be a "chop" improvement, it's not much.

    If you want a big chop improvement, need to go to HO.

    I ride a VX, I think it moves pretty quick. It tops out at about 53-54 mph. That is on the spedo not GPS.
