    Welcome to the forum

    Both skis are very nice machines. The VX110 deluxe is a nice machine, but lacks the horsepower/power the GP1300R has. The VX110 is a very nice family oriented PWC.

    The GP1300R is more performace oriented. It is based as a 2 seater PWC, but really only seats 1 comfortably.

    Both skis are nice. I persoanlly prefer the GPR due to its sheer power and high performance capabilities !

    If you want hi-performance single seater, get a GP1300R

    for ease of use and everyday day fun the VX110 is a better ski, as its got reverse, mirrors and things like a boarding step. Also its a proper 2-3 seater and designed for more family oreinted fun (towing, etc).

    personaliy I wouldnt want my family members to use my 71 mph GP1300R.

    Yes the VX110 lacks performance, but its like comparing a racing car (gp1300r) to a luxuary sedan (vx110).

    Otherwise you could always get a FX-HighOutput, depending on your budget.

    Like spaceman said, two different types of ski. Depending on the size of you and your wife the GPR will normally seat 2 pretty comfortably. The 2 seaters of today are about the same size as the 3 seaters made not long ago.

    If I wanted to relax with the family though I would probably get a 3 seater just for the reasons Spaceman stated. Reverse would be nice at the fuel docks.
