Watch for High-end Switch

Sea-Doo Switch Cruise Limited hero

Sept 28, 2023

The Sea-Doo Switch pontoon boat line has been a smash hit since it exploded onto the market in August of 2021. For 2024, an all-new flagship builds on that success and raises the Switch to an all-new level.

Measuring 21 feet in length and powered by BRP’s proven 230 horsepower Rotax engine, the all-new 2024 Sea-Doo Switch Cruise Limited brings new amenities and upgraded technology to the Switch family for even greater comfort and value.

It all starts with an upgraded helm built around a sleek, 10.25-inch touchscreen display to give the boat a fresh, all-glass dash look. There’s a companion seven-inch Garmin touch-screen GPS mounted to the right side of the main display on a bracket, keeping it within view yet without obstructing the driver’s view ahead. The trademark Switch handlebar steering on the Cruise Limited includes an attitude adjustment, so it’s equally comfortable to operate from either a seated or standing driving position.

The driver gets spoiled with an all-new helm seat with fold-down arm rests, a flip-up bolster, and an automotive-style sliding base to fit drivers of all sizes.

What’s more, the Switch Cruise Limited comes with a stellar JL Audio stereo system, including three corner table speaker units as standard. Sea-Doo leaves the aft starboard-side corner open to allow use of the stern boarding gate, but it comes factory pre-wired in case a buyer wants to add a fourth speaker table for a true surround sound experience.

Also standard on the new Cruise Limited model is a full RBG courtesy lighting system and exterior docking lights for added safety and convenience. A unique interior décor package and unique exterior colour treatment – complete with tasteful Limited badging – further set the new model apart.

Integrated rope storage is also new as a standard feature, making is a snap to deploy or stow mooring lines. You’ll find the little terminals on the starboard side of the boat, for optimal alignment of the stern entry gate.

Out back, the Switch Cruise Limited comes with a new full-beam swim platform, replacing the stylish but abbreviated platform that came with first-generation Switch pontoons. This is a big upgrade in my personal view, since it allows more options for attaching LinQ accessories such as Sea-Doo’s all-new redesigned cooler.

Yet for all the thing that have changed on the Switch Cruise Limited, the acceleration, handling, affordability and pure fun factor that made the original Switch a global best seller remains.

By Craig Ritchie

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

By Elizabeth Wilson, “Georgian Bay Beauties” (www.GeorgianBayBeauties.org)

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
