I'm from Montreal, Canada. Sorry about my limited english, Just bought a Challenger 212 SE of 2012, brand new (over stock). I took the 310 HP version. I will tow my kid on the tube, and a few years from now, we will see if he become a wakeboarder.
I maybe new to BRP jetboats, but I know them well. I started in 1997 by buying a GTX 110 PWC, that I drove for 10 years. In 2008, I bought a RXT 215 (black and silver), followed by in 2010 by a GTX is 215. My wife drives a Kawasaki STX 15-F.
I'm happy to see Scarab boats and Glastron taking over the jetboats market, with the superb 215 rotax (1503) engines. That way, if I need replacement parts, I will not need to go on the after market before many years.
Have a good spring and summer 2014,
Luc, from Montreal.
