Have Seen the X Series (RXP-X, RXT-T) and Yamaha SHO
I saw the new 2008 models today in NYC at the Javits Center Boat Show. The new Seadoos are very nice as pictured; as well as the Yamahas. The X Series Seadoos have a similar setup when lifting up the seat except the intercooler, which is supposed to be more power, is in the back. The rest of the show was like other years. I also asked the saleperson for Yamaha pertaining to the information about the horsepower rating; he explained about 220 hp. Any one have other news about the 2008s?

HUH? i thought the X's were not going to be there? And you say they were? Well maybe i will make a trip down mid week?

I did see that NY had the first boat show as advertised on the Seadoo.com website as beginning on the 29th (today). Go to the manufacturer's website and see the show listing and then get your cameras and post pics. I'm on the West Coast so I'm the last to get but wondering if they are delivering the X models around the time of the boat shows...

Could you buy one at the show? What about the Honda F-15x?
I hope they are available at the Miami Boat Show in Feb.

you can buy them at the show, but they aren't ready for delivery yet. I know of only one dealer in the area that got an X in inventory and i'm wondering if that's who brought it to the show or not.
Seadoo does not have an actial booth there... Like Yamaha for example has a 3500+ square foot booth or over $50 grand with every yamaha watercraft all pretty.. Seadoo has not been at the boat show in years... i know they have not been there since at least 2003.
usually it's up to private seadoo dealers to rent their own booth and supply their own product, so people generally are very disappointed with the seadoo showing.
same goes for kawasaki, they dont have a booth anymore for the past few years.
winter of 2003-2004 was a BIG year at the boat show in NYC... Polaris, Kawasaki, Honda, and Yamaha all had big corporate booths and there was a small private dealer there with the first ever RXP...
now the show consists of only Yamaha and that's it... a few kawis and seadoos u find scattered around maybe
