Hello all - you seem like a decent bunch of chaps/chapesses!

Living in Texas and looking to enjoy our local lake a bit more. Would like to buy a used jetski. Quite a few on offer - mostly older Seadoo and Yamaha. I'd like to spend <5k but would go higher if it meant less stress. What constitutes a good buy - and which make is easier to fix if things go wrong? I'm not at all mechanically minded so would be paying someone else.


Some of the offers I'm looking at now:-

Yamaha FX 140 2005
Yamaha GP1200R 2001
Seadoo RX D1 2003
Kawasaki Ultra 250x 2007 (this one gives me the fear)
Seadoo GTX3 2001

Thanks guys!

Had a quick look around the forum - looks like the FX140 is a pretty decent option at around $5K?

Thanks for all the help

May look at a 2005 vx110 tomorrow.

One question - what on earth do you do if one of these things breaks down when you're in the middle of a lake??

So, we now own a 2007 Seadoo GTI SE 130

It's in immaculate condition - looks brand new actually. We go to the lake on Saturday for our first outing!
