The Sea-Doo watercraft was originally released in 1988 and was updated on a sporadic basis. In 1995, the Sea-Doo XP was released, featuring the new 717 engine. This engine was, at the time, the biggest rotary valve motor ever featured in a Sea-Doo. This model also achieved some additional speed thanks to the new pump extension, which created a higher water volume at the pump front.
