2008 Sea-Doo Challenger 230 SE Jet in Goodland, Florida

Stock #224255

In the world of jet boats, Sea-Doo stands out as an excellent brand powered by an amazing engine.

The pair of closed-loop cooled 215HP Rotax engines that push the Sea-Doo Challenger 230 SE along are known for their reliability and durability. They're found in everything from snowmobiles to jet skis, and there are even a few members of the Rotax family that power light aircraft aloft.

Like other Rotax engines, these are closed-loop cooled, meaning that raw water is never cycled through the engine, only through a heat exchanger. This extends the life of the engines immeasurably and lends to their reputation for durability.

This 2008 Sea-Doo Challenger 230 SE is an excellent example of the type. She's been rack stored indoors her entire life and it shows in the low wear and tear and minimal fading in the upholstery and trim pieces at the helm.

It is very unusual to find a 12 year old jet boat with only 328 hours on it. These hours were recently verified by the seller's mechanic plugging into the engine ECU.

When you take this vessel home, you can rest assured that you have purchased a great product in great condition.

Information On Condition

According to the Owner: Overall this vessel is in very good condition for its age. Everything works as it should.

There is some very minor damage to the port bow cushion from a near miss with a propeller many years ago. It has been taped over and kept from progressing any further.

The gel coat could use a light compound and wax to remove some light oxidation and a couple of surface scuffs.

The trailer has barely been used. It appears in good condition overall though could probably be well served with a new winch strap.

Per the Seller: Over its one-owner lifetime, this vessel has been maintained with an open checkbook. All factory recommended service intervals have been attended to. The cooling systems of the engines have been flushed after every trip, without fail.

The superchargers on both motors were recently rebuilt on the factory recommended 300 hour interval. They were found to be in perfect condition when removed but were rebuilt anyway out of an abundance of caution.
