What's new in marine Web sites

BRP, SF Marina USA and Caterpillar Marine have made changes to their online offerings.

Bombardier upgraded the company's Sea-Doo Web site with a collection of short videos to educate and entertain visitors.

The Sea-Doo video library includes technological overviews of the new iCONTROL system, watercraft model performance comparisons, the Direct-Drive jet propulsion advantage of Sea-Doo sportboats, and wake how-to videos.

The Sea-Doo Web site also has several new features and upgrades. The "Dealer Locator" tool allows consumers to input their address and instantly find the closest authorized Sea-Doo dealers. Through this section consumers can also utilize the "Get-a-Quote" tool to find the best value for their needs.

In the News & Events section, enthusiasts can see all that is new with Sea-Doo by signing up for the new and improved Sea-Doo newsletter. Visitors can also add their own event in the "Add an Event" section.
