2011 Boat and Water Sports Show this weekend at Place Bonaventure



Water sports enthusiasts, this is your chance to ogle the latest boats and personal watercraft the industry has to offer! The Boat and Water Sports Show is more than 35,000 square feet of new products and activities to suit all tastes. The biggest annual event of its kind in Quebec will feature nearly 140 exhibitors, manufacturers and associations.

Here are the main models:

The AquaTrax F-15X returns this year with a GPScape navigation system and still boasts the best assembly quality in the industry.
The throttle response of its 4-cylinder, turbocharged mill was improved last year by cutting down on turbo lag, and it generates 200 hp. This is one of the most energy efficient engines in the industry.


Kawasaki is all about power, serving up the STX-15F, the most potent entry-level model on the market with a 160-hp, 4-cylinder engine, as well as the Jet Ski Ultra 300X, powered by a 300-hp, supercharged mill, the most powerful PWC ever created.


Offering 16 hot models for 2011, BRP will be presenting its all-new, affordable and stylish GTI lineup that this year includes the iBR technology or Intelligent Brake and Reverse, which cuts braking distance by two thirds compared to its rivals, as well as iTC, Intelligent Throttle Control, offering two engine operation modes.


The Japanese manufacturer will be unveiling its new VXR HO and VXS HO, two compact sport PWCs propelled by a 1,812-cc, 4-cylinder engine, the largest naturally aspirated mill on the market.

The NanoXcel hull and deck (exclusive to Yamaha) considerably reduce the machines’ weight while ensuring superior resistance compared to reinforced carbon fibre hulls. With this revolutionary technology, Yamaha has turned the page on plastic.

The Boat and Water Sports Show also gives visitors the chance to see and touch a variety of jet boats. The Yamaha 242 Limited S and SX210 and the Sea-Doo Challenger, Speedster and Wake are all waiting for you.
