EU Sea-Doo branded GTX, RXT, Wake Pro Personal Watercraft Recall [EU]

Click to enlarge image

Sea-Doo branded GTX, RXT, Wake Pro Personal Watercraft sold with a model number of 230 or 300 but no listed EAN/barcodes or VINs.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Personal Watercraft products include the possibility that an inappropriate amount of torque was applied to the front fastener of the intake grate of the recalled vehicles with the possible consequential risk that the grate might detach while the Watercraft is in movement on water.

Specifically, if this defect occurs, it could cause unpredictable behavior at speeds over 55 mph (~88 km/h), leading to the operator to be ejected from the Watercraft and suffer lacerations, fractures or drown if an incident far from shore and s/he can’t swim to safety.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Sea-Doo branded Personal Watercraft vehicles do not comply with the requirements of the appropriate Europe’s health and safety regulations, specifically Europe’s Recreational Craft and Personal Watercraft Directive.

Consequently, a recall of these products from end users has been ordered.
