The cost of a used jet ski will vary greatly depending upon its size, age, condition and engine specifications. Expect to pay anywhere between $2,000 and $20,000, depending upon your personal requirements.

The more research the rider has completed regarding the components and different specifications of various jet skis, the more informed the purchasing decision will potentially be.

4) The Seller

Ensure a reliable and positive purchasing experience, by researching if the jet ski is bought from a trusted and reputable company or individual.

 

5) Jet Ski Inspection

Aim to inspect the jet ski personally before finalising a sale. 

Ensure that the engine and mechanical parts are functioning correctly and that any damage or wear has been fully disclosed by the seller.

If unsure about the jet ski's condition, it may be helpful to take someone more experienced with you, or have a trained mechanic assess the vehicle.

Check with the seller to assess if the craft is still under warranty or not.

 

6) Test Drive

If it is at all possible, take the jet ski out for a test drive to check if it is the water craft for you.

 

7) Additional Costs

Make sure to be aware of the additional costs of running a jet ski, including:
