Good evening,

I am interested in buying a jet ski kitted out for fishing. Went to Yamaha today but felt like I was being pushed into purchasing everything new which will be like R300k. My budget is R200k and seeing its my first time buying a jet ski, I don't want to get everything new.

Ive been browsing and searching the net, but I dont see many jet ski's for sale. And the ones that are for sale are older than 5 years which won't be financed through any bank.

Should I tell the guys at Yamaha that these are the specs I am looking for at this budget, and then get them to shop around or what would be the best way forward in getting a nice setup for R200k?

Hi guys
do not want to hijack this thread but what jetski's are worth buying second hand. There are yamaha fx and vs models available with 100 + hours and are 2007 and 2008 models.
Are these worth considering or is there a major difference to the new models and older.
I am considering selling my boat and going the jetski route
any guidance would be appreciated

thanks

what are acceptable use hours on a ski and when should they be avoided
