As the warmer seasons start to roll toward us, the only thing water lovers can think about is when they can get out on the lake again. Nothing beats a gorgeous day with light wind and barely anyone out on the water besides you and your friends or family. You may have a boat to lug around the whole gang, but what about a personal watercraft (PWC)? These babies give you a little more freedom when you really want to go crazy. If you are thinking about getting a PWC for your summer lake adventures this year, or you are just a PWC junkie, you may want to take a look at some of the best watercrafts of 2014.
Sea-Doo RXP-X 260
If you want a PWC more for its sportiness and less for its touring abilities, this Sea-Doo is for you. Known for its speed and supercharged engine, this watercraft is disputably the most electrifying one of its kind for sale right now. It corners harder than anything else out there and is complete with a saddle that will take a little strain off of your upper body and allow your legs to take over and do some of the work.
Yamaha FX Cruiser SHO
This puppy is made primarily for those who like to take their PWC for long trips on the open water. It has ultra-comfy seats, equipped with lower back support and theater style seating that allows the passengers behind the driver to get a better view of the trip. This style of seating also keeps each passenger in their own section so you aren’t constantly squishing each other. This PWC isn’t just for leisurely rides, however. Equipped with a 1.8-liter engine, the Yamaha FX Cruiser SHO can have quite the sporty feel for those who want to go out on their own crazy ride once in a while.
Kawasaki Ultra 300X
If you live on the coast and are looking for something that can tame the more vicious ocean waves, this PWC is the one you are looking for. The ride will undoubtedly be smooth and secure, especially because this hulk of an engine contains the highest horsepower power plant in the business. Not only is this monster of a machine the king of even the most daunting waves, but it also displays the same nimble qualities as its smaller counterparts. This Kawasaki can reach speeds pushing 65 mph or more and can turn corners faster than you would expect.
With these three watercrafts, there is something that every type of PWC shopper will appreciate. Even if one of these beasts of the personal watercraft world doesn’t suit your fancy, there are hundreds of other options from these companies and more that can provide you with both the quality and fun you are looking for. With a little research and some help from professionals, you are guaranteed to find a PWC that works for you. The water is waiting so don’t wait!
