    Matching PWC may not be the best idea.

    Having two different models allows for more flexibility, or just different riding preferences.

    I started with a pair of 2002 Virage TXi 3 seaters, and added a 2004 MSX 140 (also 3 person rated). Turns out she really likes the different models, so we are keeping one of each. The MSX 140 is a smoother ride in rough water, while the Virage is more of a dance partner, and rides 'lighter'.

    Most modern PWC have about the same 55-60+ mph top speed in stock form, give or take a few mph, so riding together is usually not an issue.

    Keep in mind that most 3 seater PWC are really comfortable with one less than 3 people on board, or at least not three full size adults.

    If they want to ride with 3 adults on one machine and have some comfort room, look at the 4 person PWC, like the Polaris Genesis. Even larger are the SeaDoo LRV and the Yamaha SUV, also 4 passenger rated.

    I like the Polaris 2000 and up 3 seater models - Genesis, Virage, and MSX
    The SLX and Pro 1200 are rated two person, fast and really fun with one rider, especially on smoother water.

    In the other brands, look for 4 stroke engines. Watch for model and year specific weaknesses, such as the Sea-Doo RXP 2004 (and 2005?) hulls had cracking issues.

    In new models, there are lots of good choices, and some have rebate incentives on 2006 and newer models. Honda dealers are still selling off brand new 2005/2006 models, Sea-Doo has strong rebates until December, and Kawasaki is selling the 15F inexpensively.
