Yamaha SeaScooter RDS300 Review – WORTH THE MONEY?

My Opinion: I own one similar powered, level SeaDoo for 8 years. Simple, easy to recharge and quite reliable. Sadly, I mistakenly knocked it overboard and lost it at sea. So, I purchased this Yamaha to replace it and it works well.

It even has a longer battery life than my lost SeaDOO, but on/off switch seems a bit flimsy, and they’ve over complicated the dissemble process to get to the battery for recharge. Aside this, I can boldly say this DPV is worth every penny spent.
