Actually new to boating period. I've been wanting to get into it for a while. I have 2 boys 13&15 who like sports and a GF who likes to fish, but the priority is a toy.

I'm thinking of a later model Speedster. Probably a 200, but possibly a 150 or even an 18' Challenger. I've got a few friends I can turn to, but I like the online forum as well. I'll take advice or pointers from those with more experience. Thanks!

1999 Sea Doo Speedster
Well, I'm not sure a jet boat is the best boat for a beginner.... I mean, they have pros and cons.... but they are definitely harder to control at low speed than conventional outboard or i/o boats..... docking takes practice with a jet boat.... Im just sayin....
Also, my 99 Speedster has no windshield to speak of... I wish it did because at 50mph the wind is intense and you gotta wear close fitting wrap around glasses or goggles..... I love my boat, but it isn't perfect, and I'm glad it wasnt my very first boat. I've had boats for 30 years and this is my first jet.... takes some getting used to for sure.....but I dig it!
