Discussing The Durability Of Sea-Doo’s Polytec Hulls


A typical question among new buyers looking at the Sea-Doo Spark with its Polytec hull is just how durable is it and will it hold up to the rigors of use? Simply put yes, this material is durable and will last. The Polytec hull and deck has been used in the Spark for four seasons now and going into its fifth year of production.

We’ve already seen the transition of the Polytec hull into the GTS, GTI, and GTI SE for the 2017 year and for 2018, the expanse continues to even more models including higher horsepower models including the 155 HP Wake 155 as we have already detailed here. Sea-Doo is utilizing Polytec and expanding its use, no ifs, ands, or buts.

This strong, lightweight, durable, and environmentally friendly material is a testament to itself in the fact that one of the largest watercraft manufacturers is trusting its design to a wide range of its portfolio. No sane business would do so if the design was unreliable or could not be trusted.

Sure, it can be damaged but this is almost always a case of repeated or high-speed collisions with hard objects such as rocks but the same holds true for fiberglass hulls. The fact of the matter is that the Polytec hull can withstand just as much harsh riding conditions as conventional hulls. Take for example our numerous articles related to Spark wave jumping such as this one.

Needless to say, we don’t have any worries about this material and look forward to its continued and expanded use. Dare we even say that we will be looking for its expansion into some performance models and that other manufacturers have noticed its benefits and are taking notes. To see all model offerings utilizing Polytec, be sure to visit Sea-Doo.
