No, this is not a prank. Sea-Doo wants to pay you (actually, five lucky participants) $1,000 towards the “purchase of a new or unused Sea-Doo model or Sea-Doo parts, accessories and clothing.” Yup, all that just for making a solid guess at what Sea-Doo is cooking up for 2016. Of course, y’know The Watercraft Journal has dropped some serious hints and there’s been rumors swirling around for years now, so your chance of hitting the nail on the head is pretty dang close.
All you have to do is go to Sea-Doo’s “What’s Next” contest page and submit your guess. In fact, according the rules (listed below), it doesn’t even appear that Sea-Doo will even care if you’re right or not, as five contestants will be chosen at random to receive a winning prize package. But since you heard about the contest here, do us a favor and let Sea-Doo know that you first learned about the contest at The Watercraft Journal! It makes us look good.
Oh, but here’s what we can gather from the video below: The 2016 craft shown feature two color options: orange/black either GTR or RXT, a white/black RXT-X, and a black/red or orange RXP-X, and from all the shots of turbulent water, we almost *gasp* wonder if a new “rough water” hull might be coming out. The marketing types at Sea-Doo are pretty sneaky like that.
OK, here’s the official announcement:
