Video: Reviews Sea-Doo’s Polytec 2.0 Hulls

Even the best doctors will recommend getting a second opinion on a prognosis, and we at The Watercraft Journal are no different. While we’ve shared our views on the 2020 GTI lineup from Sea-Doo – particularly in regards to the wider use of Polytec (in this case, a newly coined second generation of Polytec deemed “2.0”) for the model segment’s hulls – in previous articles and reviews, we submit this video review from Joe Zammataro of

He writes, “Can a plastic hull really work in a full sized ski? With the new 2020 GTI lineup, PolyTec 2.0 has been launched and is used exclusively through all GTI models, even the GTR230. These are full-sized skis using the plastic hull, significantly heavier than the Spark. So do they hold up? Do they feel cheap? Would this hull work for a ski I’d own? These are the questions I set off to answer as we tested out the new models in the GTI lineup.”

And true to his word, Joe details a list of pros and cons to the new GTI and GTR models, how he saw how the lightweight Polytec material holds up in a variety of conditions, and whether he’d recommend its purchase to friends and family. As a bit of a spoiler, we feel we’re on the same page with Joe for the most part, and glad to see so many in the industry take a shine to this latest innovation from Sea-Doo.
