Buying your first jet ski can be a daunting experience - there’s a huge range of options and accessories to choose from, and you don’t want to make the wrong decision on such a major investment.
Follow these 6 jet ski tips to ensure you get a PWC that suits your needs and gives you countless hours of joy.
Set a Realistic Budget
There are more costs to buying a PWC than you might think. Besides the craft itself, you will have to think about a license, life jackets, a trailer for transportation and even installation of a tow bar if your car doesn’t have one. Once you factor all of this into you budget, you might not have enough left for the PWC your heart is set on.
Consider If You Will Ever Be Taking Passengers
There’s nothing quite like being out on the open water yourself, but newer PWC models can comfortably carry up to four people at a time. It’s worth considering if you’ll ever take passengers when planning a PWC purchase.
If you’re unsure, we recommend sticking with a smaller PWC for personal use. Larger models can be a little harder to ride, and you might want to stick with a more controllable jet ski in the meantime.
Do You Need a Model Capable of Towing?
More experienced riders might want to consider a PWC capable of towing water skiiers and boarders before they make a purchase.

Think About Your Riding Plans
Not all jet skis are one and the same - most dealerships will have entry-level, luxury and high performance models to choose from. Do your research online before you go instore, as you don’t want to end up with more power or maintenance costs than you can handle.
Understand What Your Warranty Covers
A PWC is a major investment, and new buyers should read the fine print in their warranty to fully understand their coverage. Most PWCs will come with a basic warranty that covers major components such as the engine, steering, pumps, seals and gaskets. Comprehensive warranties that cover all mechanical parts are also available. Choose a warranty level that provides you with adequate peace of mind, as you don’t want to spend your time out on the water worrying about potential damage.
Hold Firm Regarding Accessories
It’s easy to be swayed into buying a heap of accessories you don’t need. At JSW Powersports we can assist and help you get a feel for your craft and find your jet ski essentials. We will find the right requisite safety equipment, gear and accessories for your jet-ski adventures.
