I'd expect to see ~ 1500CC engines with twice the fuel efficiency. Probably more turbos than Superchargers as well.
A 3000CC engine would be much to heavy.

With fuel costs rising like they are, you can expect to see less and less of the gas-gulping muscle craft selling, and this will also impact the auto industry.
Liberal politicians and judges will probably seek out and penalize PWC as "abusers of fossil fuels," and "excessive carbon footprint devices" or some crap like that, hitting us with a special gas guzzler tax. Think I'm joking? Take a look at how Bluewater Network portrays PWC on their website, don't forget, these are the radical liberals who have already sued the National Park Service and forced the NPS to ban all PWC (4 strokes included) from America's National Parks, back in March, 2000.
It has taken years, but Americans are slowly taking back the freedoms these radical liberals have taken from us. From 2003-2005, 15 National Parks have re-opened their waters to PWC, as the chart on the link below shows. But we should never forget the liberal socialists would like nothing better than to see this small boating industry destroyed and our PWC outlawed everywhere, and they are still trying to kill the PWC industry!

Yeah that lame blue water network is trying to close pwc off at the Gulf Islands National Seashore again... for emissions... lol. I grew up there... spent every weekend there... as a matter of fact my avatar pic was taken there. So sad what they are trying to do. Glad I am an AWA member.

Well, if you think we are getting are freedoms back...im not too sure...Obama has a problem with people keeping their houses at 72 degrees
“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK…. That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen.”
Anyway, politics aside - if anything, the displacement will be greater and the engine will be smaller, but I dont think you can go much faster than the 90's on such a lightweight craft. You'll run the risk of getting flipped and then if you make it any heavier, you'll sacrafice efficiency drastically, but I'm sure some one will come up with some ingenious idea, rather than all these little addons like cruise assist and no wake mode. WTH is that? I want to be in control of my craft. (just like my life...I will put my house on whatever the f temperature I want to!) When I'm blasting through waves, I want to be able to vary your speeds.

They need to take a step BACK!!!! Forget bigger engines. Go smaller and lighter and make the hulls and pumps more efficient...better fuel mileage, lower emissions, better ride for the RIDERS, etc.
BRP, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Honda.........hello?!

Future?? With the freaks at Bluewater........ And gas prices........ Were all screwed!!

I actually like the cruise control and wake assist on the SHO. Wake assist makes life alot easier when your stuck going through a 1/2 mile long no wake zone. Cruise control makes things more comfortable when your taking a leisurly cruise down the colorado river. Yeah I could just get a boat but they are not as versitale as a pwc.

Yup, efficiency, efficiency, efficiency, via lighter hulls, some new engine that uses ethanol or hydrogen, or maybe even electricity...
If it is oil based, you can bet your ass they'll some sort of cat converter on it...
read a study on this... a generator or more importantly a small 4 stroke engine produce roughly a hundred times more emissions compared to an automobile over the same period of time... nevermind the two strokes,lol So you can see how that would be used against the pwc community... I thought i had heard of a guy who was actually making a cat converter for boats... if he did make one successfully somehow i dont think it would last too long in my boat...
