Who makes the most reliable 3 seater ski that runs over 64 mph
I would like to hear some opinions here......
Who makes the all around most reliable, most comfortable, best rough water ride, NON supercharged, 3 seater jetski?

Hmm, it's going to be Sea-Doo or Yamaha, but I'm not as familiar with the newest N/A models.
The new VXR/S from Yamaha has the largest N/A engine available over 1800 cc and will hit 68 mph but it's not the best rough water model.
The FX-HO will hit all your requirements and I know you can get a 2008 FX-HO up to 64 mph with this kit, which Jerry sells in his store:

I HIGHLY suggest you ride a vxr in choppy water before you buy one. I spent a good bit of time on them and in fact quite a few miles on one yesterday. On flat calm fine but you stated rough water. Well just the little lake chop and all the boat traffic it was not the ride I would want to spend too many days on. I am sure you know enough people to ride the different skis whichever they are before you buy them.
The FXHO would be a much better decision in the Yamaha line. I would also recommend you look at the Kawasaki 15F. These are the two skis I recommend to friends that are looking for a ski with the same expectations as you.
I know I started a war since I suggested a Kawasaki but do your own research of that ski.

Forget the 3 seater, get a GP1300R
non supercharged, but can easily be as fast as a supercharged X boat
Ok I never thought I'd ever say this... But the RXTX is a nice ride and quick, not sure about the non SC 4 strokes, sorry

Pretty much you're looking at Yamaha's FX HO for that. I wouldn't recommend a VXR if you ride where there's any real waves. Kawi STX-15s run just under that limit (62). A Sea Doo GTI 155 is also too slow at more like 59 mph.

From the Seadoo side of things, I have been hearing a lot of good things about the GTR215. Not sure how it is in the chop, but everyone who has one seems to love it and its very affordable.

Gtr215 is fine in the chop, direct handling, skips over the waves with ease. 55 hrs on mine trouble free.

Mike's GP , sorry ..... but you are of no help! 1st they want a 3-seater, and a ski that is good in chop. Now as you know the GP1300 is none of those things.
