Thread: New project???
06-11-2012, 11:01 PM #1
So if you look at my past posts you will see that I successively resurrected 2 Seadoos from certain death and now I am looking for a new project
This is what I'm considering. According to the description its a 2003 speedster
According to the description there is a engine damage and undercarriage damage. This could mean a lot of things so I will be inspecting it closely b4 I buy it
What engines did they use on these? Do they have rotax 2 stroke or the mercury v6
Anything I should know and to look for?
Whats a restored boat like this worth???

Edit: It's not listed up here, but a quick look at the parts fiche says its a Mercury V6.
NADA says value could be $10k-$20k

Man, BRP really took a huge leap backwards on the newer Speedsters versus the old.
Five real seats, instead of the tight three and a half I've got in mine.
A rear view mirror... what genius said those aren't needed anymore?
A real boat engine (Mercury V6), versus a tiny jetski engine.
No screwing around with the timebomb called a supercharger.
Windscreens... again, what genius? I know my passengers are miserable at high speed without any kind of windscreen.
The '03 even had a horn!
Took A LOT of money to make my Speedster a decent boat, and I still don't have five seats, windscreens, or a horn.
Go for it; could be an envious project.

I think the 1999 Speedster is the one to have. You get the body still like the one above, but with twin 782's.
