    Tropical Punch: 2015 Sea-Doo GTI 155 SE



    When the pictures were first leaked revealing the 2015 Sea-Doo lineup, we have to admit that our initial reaction was curious at best. As Sea-Doo’s competitors doubled down on automotive-grade paints brandishing deep metallics and subdued earthy hues, the decision to swing so far afield took many by surprise. And if the Internet has taught us anything, it’s that people are resistant to change.

    It was hard not to share in the hive-mind sentiment, but only when several females (both enthusiasts and passersby) mentioned their affinity for the brilliant tones did Sea-Doo’s brilliance began to gel.

    Last year’s candy-colored Sparks paralleled a wave of trendy affordable-yet-fun-looking items, most obviously Apple’s budget-minded iPhone 5C. Clearly the widespread reception of the Spark influenced BRP’s tinting choices for 2015.

    No i think someone needs to make a ski thats all chrome.


    I showed this gti to my wife and she really liked it. I think its cool to look at but it would never be my choice of colors to be riding with. Would be a great ride for the wife though.

    But that's the exact philosphy, BryanP. For those looking to buy one, getting the "wife on board" is the biggest challenge. And offering colors that are very appealing to the fairer sex is one sure way to do it. Most women polled thought the Spark was "cute."

    I completely agree. Pretty sure that was their intended audience. When the wife see it and likes it, that makes it so much easier to buy it.

    A Seadoo salesperson/rep at the Toronto boat show told us that last year's colors are still available for 2015, the new colors are in addition.

    The new colors are not my cup of tea. That said, it is refreshing to see something other than the ongoing 'more manly, more aggressive, more whatever'

    I was at the dealership yesterday. They had some of the new colors and I found the Maldives Blue to be much less offensive than I thought it would be! It actually looked pretty good and also had some blue stickers on it that were a slightly different blue and it helped to "break it up." It was indoors and I did not notice what Kevin did about the hood being a different color, but I wasn't looking all that close.
