Feldman v BRP US Inc.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA CASE NO. 17-CV-61150

If You Bought a BRP 2010 to 2017 Sea-Doo® Watercraft with the 1503 Engine and Exhaust Resonator Part Number 274001366 Purchased in the State of Florida, New York, Texas, or New Jersey

You Could Get Benefits From a Class Action Settlement

A federal court authorized this Website. You are not being sued. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.


A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit involving claims that certain 2010-2017 model year Sea-Doo® watercrafts have defective exhaust resonators.  The lawsuit claims that the resonators can melt during certain normal and foreseeable operations and cause partial sinking and engine damage.


  • BRP, the manufacturer and distributor of the Sea-Doo® watercraft, denies the resonators are defective and that it did anything wrong and claims that the alleged defect only manifests during misuse of the watercrafts.  However, both sides have agreed to settle the case.
  • Those included in the Settlement will receive an extended warranty as to certain overheating problems that damage the resonator and could also receive free repairs or reimbursement for prior repairs.
    
  • Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act.  Read this website carefully.
