2023 Sea-Doo Vs Yamaha Vs Kawasaki

A new year and a new Sea-Doo vs. Yamaha vs. Kawasaki post, but this year is different.

Due to current events, not much has changed with watercraft. Much of the 2022 models will carry over to the 2023 line up. Since there wasn’t a lot of change, most of what was written in 2022 post still holds true.

I want to mix things up a bit; instead of comparing a couple of models with their closest competitor, we’re going to compare them all to each other. This way, you can see everything and draw your on conclusions on what you think is best for your needs.

Previous Years

I’ve been doing these vs posts for a few years now, so if you need a previous year model or to look back at what things used to cost, the posts below will help.

Jet Ski Terms

There is a lot of mumbo jumbo when it comes to jet skis, so I created a post to help you better understand them.

I also have a section on how to drive jet skis here.

A section on maintenance for jet skis.

And the common questions people have about jet skis.

Transmission & Hull

iBR, RIDE and KSRD are all types of electronic forward, reverse, neutral and braking. It’s the best option you can have and makes driving a jet ski a lot easier.

Sea-Doo first released iBR in 2009, Yamaha was in 2015 and Kawasaki in 2022.

The jet skis with “Forward Only” will be the hardest to drive, with manual forward and reverse being easier, and lastly electronic systems beings easiest.

To learn about the transmissions on a jet ski and how they have brakes, see our post here.

Basic Features

The items are sorted by basic features, this includes the cooling, step (reboarding ladder) and mirrors.

I’ve sorted the chart by step as I find a reboarding ladder to be more important and more useful out of all these features. Many of the models without a reboarding step can have them added for an extra cost.

The mirrors are next in line and often a legal requirement for tow sports in many places. Learn more about jet ski mirrors and if you need them here.

Driving Features

Driving Modes

  • Touring = Slow take off but full speed.
  • ECO = Gives you the best gas mileage.
  • Sport = Full power.
  • Slow Mode = For no-wake zones, usually limited to 5mph.
  • Slo = Kawasaki “touring mode”.
  • Speed Limiter / Regulator = Cruise control, called something different because it’s not the kind of cruise control you have in your car.
  • Ski Mode = You set the take-off power and top speed, and the Sea-Doo will maintain that every pull for the tuber or skier you’re pulling.
  • Trolling Mode = Super slow mode to creep around like you would in a fishing boat with a trolling motor.
  • Launch Control = Gives you a quicker take-off by adjusting the trim for you.

Trim

Trim on a jet ski is similar to trim on a boat. The trim raises and lowers the nose of the watercraft. It’s controlled by the nozzle of the jet ski, rarely jet skis have trim-tabs.

Trim is helpful for choppy riding conditions and tow sports. Some models even have trim that auto adjust for racing to give you better bite around corners.

Tech Features

Some models come with GPS, some even have a fish finder added too. Some models are capable of adding GPS, but an extra charge to get the map card is needed. Then we have some models with GPS but it uses your phone’s app built by the manufacturer.

The audio is the stereo system of the jet ski. Just about every model from every manufacturer can have a stereo system added, but a few come with them from the factory.

The security is the “key” to unlock your jet ski. Some manufacturers use a chip on a lanyard, some do it by a chip in a plastic key, and some just use a PIN. A few models have no security at all, so a lock is needed, as talked about here.

Some models of jet skis have a USB port for charging, audio, or controlling your phone.

Some models with a digital key may come with them but not be there when you take delivery and must be installed later due to supply chain issues.

Specialty Features

Some jet skis come with coolers, most can have them added.

We also have specialty jet skis, like ones made for fishing or exploring.

Other Features

Debris free is the Sea-Doo iDF system, it allows you to reverse the impeller to free debris stuck in the pump. Normally, when you put a jet ski in reverse you’re only redirecting the thrust with a bucket and not changing the direction of the impeller like you do with a boat.

Tow sports are things like pulling tubes, wakeboards, and skiers. Every jet ski has a tow hook, but some have upgrades to make tow sports easier. While every jet ski has a tow hook, it doesn’t mean they’re all good at pulling. 90 to 100HP will struggle, 101HP to 130HP will be better, 131HP to 230HP is just perfect, and anything over 230HP is overkill for pulling.

  1. Hi Steve, great content as usually and thanks for all your hard work. One error though; The VX CRUISER HO 1.8 does 65mph ( I have one and can verify gps, also video review of Watercraft Journal). It’s the exact same hull and engine as the GP1800R HO, which also does 65mph. Thanks and great content!

    • Thank you for the correction. I found The Watercraft Journals video on the VX Limited HO, which has the same hull and engine, and they report 62MPH @ 7,500RPM (https://youtu.be/1M4LXANvUTs?t=463). I’ve corrected it with it (was 58, now 62). Truck King on YouTube also did a top speed test on a 2021 VX Cruiser HO and only got 57MPH (https://youtu.be/3QZfU9rtHQA) which is where I got the original number from. Rider weight and gear can be a factor along with location, so I do believe you’re getting 65MPh, but I’m going with 62MPH to split the difference. I’ve found it’s better to go with the lower MPH or closer to average, as every watercraft and every riding condition is different. Plus, it’s better to see your jet ski is faster than you realize, than the opposite.
