The Sea-Doo GTI SE 130 is full featured and the easiest to maneuver around the dock thanks to its portside reverse lever. Its price, however, is the highest here. Plus, it has less stowage capacity and the highest fuel consumption. The Yamaha VX Deluxe is the best-selling boat in the industry. Its stylish looks, predictable handling, low price, and class-topping fuel economy make it impossible to ignore. However, the Kawasaki STX 15F comes to this gunfight packing heat. It's tops in speed, acceleration, stowage, and fuel capacity, and nearly equals Yamaha in fuel conservation. A boarding ladder and ski-tow-eye seal the deal. It looks a little dated, but it's the best bang for the buck.
