Sales Tax: Every state has a different sales tax that you pay when purchasing anything. There may even be extra taxes depending on where you live.

Freight: This is the shipping fee that is paid to get a unit delivered to the dealership.

PDI: This is the Pre-Delivery Inspection. PWCs come in crates and must be removed, setup, and gone over to make sure it’s ready for the water.

Doc: This is the documentation fee. Every state has laws about the documentation fee, and it gets confusing fast, you can learn more here.

Registration Fee: This is the fee you pay to get your PWC and/or trailer registered with your state. This is basically the process to get numbers assigned and a trailer tag. This fee can vary depending on how many years you pay for and county fees too.

MSRP: If you see MSRP, that is the manufacturer suggested retail price. All models have an MSRP that is set by the factory. An interesting tidbit about MSRP is that dealerships can’t advertise a current year model below this number, but can go below this number on non-current models.

Commodity Surcharge: A commodity surcharge is a real fee added to the price when the raw material to build it fluctuates. Scroll down to learn more about the commodity surcharge.



I started working at a power sports dealership in 2007, I worked in parts, service counter, and as a technician before moving to sales in 2013. I created in 2014 to answer common watercraft questions I would get from people. Now managing the site full-time, I continue to provide advice and web tools for my readers about watercraft. I've owned several watercraft, with a Sea-Doo Spark as my current main PWC.
