Our flagship jet boat offers performance, style and comfort. No other jet boat compares. An enclosed fiberglass head, complete with a porta-pottie and opening portlight, allows day trips away from the dock. In the engine compartment, high output twin engine options ranging from twin 200 or 250 Rotax 4-TEC ECT will meet any need for speed. The standard Bluetooth sound system features premium sound quality and can be upgraded with an optional subwoofer, six-channel amp, and a transom remote. An optional ballast system, along with the optional award winning Aerial Surf Platform create an endless wave for wakesurfing. The bow is spacious and accomodating. A standard filler cushion converts the bow area to a huge play area for the kids and a standard table is a plus while entertaining. Stainless steel drink holders, LED cockpit lighting, molded footrests set the 243 Vortex apart. The anchor stows in its own cradle inside a dedicated compartment that has room for a line and chain and a forward ladder. The biggest bow area in our Vortex Series featuring recessed stereo speakers and stainless steel drink holders. The bow area offers adult-sized legroom, storage under the seats and reassuring freeboard. A standard weather door gurads against wind in the cockpit on chilly mornings or late in the boating season. The 243's swim platform is the perfect area for all kinds of watersports. A three step telescopic ladder stows in its own hideaway compartment. A standard protective mat provides sure-footing. Twin aft facing seats feature grab handles within arm's reach and stainless drink holders. Recessed stereo speakers beside each seat face aft for music while swimming.
