- 2001 Seadoo Challenger 2000 Merc V6 240 HP
I used to own the 1997 Seadoo Challenger with twin rotax engines and sold it a few years ago. This year we decided to get another one, this time we purchased a 2001 with the Mercury V6 240 hp. When I called up the mechanic who used to service my 1997 to schedule an engine service, he told me I should have called him before I purchased this particular boat because he said these are extremely difficult to find parts for and he won't work on them. I did happen to find a shop who claim they do work on them and will be dropping it off to them and I am praying they know where to find the parts for it. I wanted to see if other people struggle getting the parts they need for these since Seadoo is out of the boat business now. I wanted to also see if anyone else has owned both engine types and which one you preferred and why. Wish I had thought it thru prior to purchasing. This boat is in pristine condition in every way....as long as I can keep it running...
