For over 25 years…
Water scooters – as they were originally called – were first developed in Europe in the mid-1950s. In the 1960s, the idea was developed further by Clayton Jacobson II of Australia. Jacobson’s water scooter was powered by an internal pump-jet rather than an outboard motor, made of all aluminum, and had a fixed, upright handle. It differed slightly from modern personal watercraft but had definite similarities. He completed a second prototype a year later in 1966 made of fiberglass. The first Clayton-type PWC to reach the market was designed by Bombardier in the late 1960s.
Ever since J.A. Bombardier founded the company in 1942, his name has been synonymous with quality and creativity. For over a quarter century, this passion has driven Sea-Doo to be the industry leader in recreational watercraft. There’s really no surprise that anyone who climbs aboard is going to have an incredibly fun time on the water. Sea-Doo offers accessibility, innovation and technology infused throughout the entire lineup.
