It’s rare we see a new boat that’s truly unique, but right now we have two on the radar that are one of a kind. The first boat we covered is the Veer from Lund Boats, in part two we have: the Sea-Doo Switch.

If you had spent your life searching high and low for a tri-toon pontoon boat made of PolyTec (a mix of polyproplyne and glass fibers), which is jet-powered and steered with PWC-like handlebars, you would have had zero luck—until Sea-Doo introduced the Switch. This ingenious little ‘toon (13- to 21-foot models are available) is a cross between a pontoon boat and a PWC. That alone is enough to call it unique, but the surprises don’t end there. The Switch has a modular deck with the company’s LinQ quick-attachment mounts, which allows you to rearrange and secure everything on the deck from the furniture to coolers to cocktail tables. So, this boat is customizable not only out of the box, but for each and every voyage you take.

The Switch is sold with a trailer, has Rotax 1630 ACE jet-drive powerplant (with 130 to 230 horsepower), and includes Sea-Doo PWC perks like iBR brake and reverse and cruise control. Pricing ranges from around $22,000 to just over $41,000 depending on size and outfitting. Additional items optional on some models but standard on others include lounge areas with sunpads and backrests, Bimini tops, ski-tow pylons, touchscreen MFDs, and stereo systems. To say that this boat is “unique” may be the understatement of the century.
