    is a 1996 Seadoo GTI one of the good ones? what about similar year SPX?
    The 951s didn't' come out until 99 I believe, they are usually silver, they get a bad rap because when they do go they grenade and usually destroy the block. The 720 is kind of a dog (85 hp) the 787 motor is the one everyone wants.

    This era of seadoo isn't really known for they're cruisers, the models that everyone likes are the sportier SPX and XP, they claim to be a two seater but are really just for one. I have a 97 SPX and really like it, these have a cult following and a lot of aftermarket and forum support.

    As for reliabliity, you have to get one that is sorted out or do it yourself, there are a couple achilies heels that cause most of the failures, the biggest of which is the fuel lines, sounds crazy but they have to be changed or will cause the engine to seize.

        Great when working, but defo a constant reliability worry....as with most 2 strokes. The yamaha will be the most reliable of these and easy to work on come time for the enevitable 100hr top end rebuild.

Of course, all have been well maintained by ADULTS, and even though they have been run hard, they were all been put away dry (get my drift......LOL).
