There’s nothing like a war, sunny day out on the lake or in the bay on your stand-up paddleboard; yeah, that sounds boring indeed. But what about some exciting and unadulterated fun on a jet ski? Hopping on water while enjoying that unique sound is a good way to get your blood pumping, but there’s more ways than one of doing it. Choose your jet ski wisely, and pay attention to the options below!
7. Sea-Doo Spark
Sea-Doo constructed the Spark, a light, affordable, and fun little personal watercraft that revitalized the industry and allowed buyers to get their jollies without cashing out their 401(k). With 60 ponies under the hood, it will not break any speed records, but allow riders to reach 50 mph or more depending on build. This is maneuverable performance at a low price.
6. Yamaha Waverunner SuperJet
The stand-up jet ski is a dying breed, at least for those looking for a smooth, comfortable ride. With that being said, anyone looking to really get some traction on the waves, fly solo, perform tricks, and generally just prove why stand-ups should always have a place in our hearts will love the SuperJet. A 2-stroke, dual cylinder engine with a 701 cc displacement and a couple of 38 mm Mikuni carburetors give it a screaming throttle.
5. Kawasaki STX-15F
Kawasaki keeps churning out quality products. Their craftsmanship has culminated in the STX-15F: 160 hp and speeds of up to 62 mph. Kawasaki continues their long tradition of highly reliable merchandise, making this machine nearly impossible to break this or even hurt, no matter how inexperienced you are on the stick.
4. Sea-Doo RXP-X 260
This waverunner from Sea-Doo features folding re-board steps that allow you on and off daintily. The inexperienced rider and low RPM modes allow for a little more control over the power output, and the on-board security system keeps your investment safe. A mere 812 lbs., this ski jet features a 4 cylinder, 4-stroke engine that produces 260 hp which translates into 60-70+ mph speeds.
3. Yamaha Waverunner FX Cruiser SVHO
The cushy accommodations on the Cruiser SVHO actually allow for a measure of comfort if you’re taking out your spouse and child. While the seats are luxurious, the elegance doesn’t stop there. A dual throttle handlebar permits both forward and backward movement with just a twist. The simple cruise control takes over for those times when flicking your wrist is too much work. Sounds great!
2. Kawasaki Ultra 310X
This ski jet uses the same basic engine as the ZX-14 sportbike from Kawasaki to great effect. It’s a liquid-cooled inline 4-cylinder with nearly 1,500 cc of displacement speeding on water. With some modification, you can get it up to 100 mph if you so choose, and even at top speed it will feel like riding a bullet, but you’re going to need to trust the machine a lot if you plan to redline the throttle.
1. Gibbs Sports Amphibians Quadski
There’s no reason for you to be forced to choose between ATV riding and jumping on a jet ski when you get a Quadski. In seconds it transforms from all-terrain vehicle to personal watercraft. Able to hit up to 45 mph whether traversing the ground or the waves, the 4 cylinder 1300 cc engine is an amphibious work of art.
