Ultra-popular personal watercraft forum PWCToday.com recently named the Sea-Doo GTI as the website’s first-ever PWC of the Year. The award, presented by Watercraft Superstore, will be presented to manufacturer Bombardier Recreational Products on Thursday, February 17th at 2 PM at the Miami International Boat Show in Booth D72. The 2011 GTI will also be featured in the Watercraft Superstore annual publication, which mails this Spring.

According to John Salvatore, Chairman of the Selection Committee, two craft stood out from the pack for the award. Their names came as no surprise to me — the GTI and Yamaha’s new VXR. Ultimately, however, the GTI took the title, thanks in large part to its mainstream appeal.

“The 2011 Sea Doo GTI 130 has a number of innovative features that were only available on much more expensive watercraft in the past,” explains Salvatore. “In particular, the brake and reverse controls on the handlebar are completely intuitive and make riders feel much more at ease.”

PWCToday.com claims to be the largest personal watercraft forum in the world, having over 60,000 members. The Watercraft Superstore is an online retailer dedicated to the watercraft lifestyle and can be found at watercraftsuperstore.net.
