WTK:Buying a Jetski (or two)

Postby Phone Surgeon » September 18th, 2010, 10:12 am

Hello all, I am looking into buying one or two jetskis for personal use.

I will be importing them myself. Looking for recommendations on what are good models to buy that don't give too much trouble

100k budget for each one.




on a side note,
If I bring down about 10 Jet Skis for rental use, is there some kind of license I need to get or permission?

Well I have a kawasaki 15f for sale Brand new and does around 61mph stock and also a Kawasaki ultra 250x with a stage 1 but if you are importing it yourself there is a wonderful bike yamaha just realeased called a vxr but it might break the budget.

yup its a 2011 model this is going to be its first year of production..........Its n/a and is fast enought o run with supercharged ski's but it wont handle as well in the chop cause it is much lighter. But there is absolutely no bells and whistles on this ski just the basics..........http://www.yamaha-motor.com/waverunner/products/modelhome/650/home.aspx but what you should do is a wait a year or so till the price drops when the 2012 models are released.

well for rent the best bet would be between a vx110 or the kawasaki 15f and any mechanic can fix a jetski engine its basically a car engine.

I have 2 yamaha VX deluxe with trailers, 2005 models with 54 and 94 hours they are practically brand new and they would both cost you a little over the price you plan to pay for one. These machines sit very well in our choppy waters. call me or check my add for soempics
