Jet ski in a Doblo

Total newbie here.

I want to transport a stand up jet ski in a vehicle that still has some practicality (not a van). I have been looking at ex disability Doblos but wanted to find out if my ski will fit, see attached photo of 1.4 2008 Doblo. The ski is 2.2m long by 0.7m at its widest point. Will this fit in the space?
Any help or recommendations appreciated.

Hi,

1850mm from inside of back doors (I've got the barn doors) to the back of the driver/passenger seats.

Cheers

Thanks Poperon

If the passenger seat was put forward as far as it goes would that give the extra 35cm need you think?

Re: Jet ski in a Doblo

Hi,

mine is a 2008 223l Cargo Maxi. I got my Daelim Daystar the length of which is 2,240 mm or 88.2 inches in. I put it in diagonally, though. Its wide is 800 mm, and at front and back are wheels.

hope that helps

Re: Jet ski in a Doblo

Hi,

With passenger seat pushed forward you gain about 150mm to 200mm.

Cheers

Re: Jet ski in a Doblo

I have a 263 Doblo Wheelchair vehicle similar to the picture.
I use it for (amongst other things) transporting my motorbike around.
I can get the bike in by pushing the passenger seat forward, but it's such a squeeze, it's actually quicker to take the seat out - it's only a 5 minute job. 5 bolts and 3 plugs.
But to answer your question, your ski won't fit!
The distance between the 2 rear seats is less than 70cm. Some WAV's have only 1 rear seat - mine had, but I got one fitted when I bought it. The channel beneath the seats is 75cm, so enough with the seats out.
The deal breaker is length (heard that before somewhere...) it's not long enough.
From the ramp to the centre console rear air vent between the seats is 180cm. You may be able to get the seats forward more, but it's uncomfortable driving.
I think you'll need to go up a size - Peugeot Expert or similar, or if you're flush, a VW Caddy (I also run one of these as a WAV. A full 5 seater but the rear seats unclip and are easy to get out if you're strong - the double is heavy!)

Most WAV's rear ramps are stowed vertically, but this takes up precious length. Some, like my Caddy will stow the ramp horizontally as well. Good for loads, but defeats the object if you need to use the ramp!
