A Jet Ski Stand is nice to have if you own a Sea-Doo, Yamaha, or a Kawasaki watercraft. Sometimes you need a PWC off of a trailer and on a Stand for working on or storing it for the winter.
What kind of Jet Ski Stand you should buy depends on what you’re doing with it, who will use it, and what type of jet ski you put on it.
We have compiled a list of the Best Jet Ski Stands that we like and have used to help you find the one that works best for you.
Aquacarts makes some of the best stands for PWC’s on the market. The AQ-19b is actually one of my favorite stands to use.
This stand is just the right height for working on and for loading and unloading on a trailer.
The best thing about this stand is the wheels. These wheels are thick and big which makes it super nice to roll on many surfaces like concrete and carpet.
The weight capacity is about 1,300 pounds – that’s quite a lot. To give you an idea here is the Dry Weight of some of the heaviest watercraft in the market.
- 2017 Sea-Doo GTX Limited S is about 1,100 pounds
- 2017 Yamaha FX LIMITED SVHO is about 850 pounds
- 2016 Kawasaki Ultra 310 LX is about 1,100 pounds
Smaller watercraft like the Spark, GTI, GTX, RXT, RXP, VX, V1, FX, EX, VXR, or really any watercraft that is not 4 person watercraft and weighs less than 1,200 pounds will work just fine on this cart.
Two of the rolling wheels do have brakes. This makes it nice to lock the cart in one position when you’re working on it.
If you need a stand that is shorter to make it easier to work on or easier to display a watercraft then you might want to consider this Stand.
The SBT PWC Shop Cart is 11 inches high and is nice to have if need to hover over the engine compartment on your watercraft.
This PWC Dolly holds about 1,200 pounds and has a really strong and sturdy caster. Having strong casters is really important for moving around the shop or a showroom.
The one problem some might have with this cart is that it will be harder to take a watercraft off of a trailer since it sits so low. If you have the manpower or equipment then this is not a problem.
Personal Watercraft Dolly PWC Dock Slipway Cart
If you have a stand-up jet ski, Sea-Doo Spark, Yamaha EX, or any lightweight simple watercraft then you don’t need anything fancy. This dolly will work just fine for your needs.
This Stand has the lowest weight capacity of all the other stands we have shown and that is why we only recommend it for the smaller watercraft.
Make Your Own Stand?
You might see some people making stands out of wood or even PVC Pipe on the internet. We don’t recommend doing that. You don’t want to spend all this money on a nice new watercraft and have it ruined because a cheap homemade stand broke.
Plus, watercraft are getting heavier and heavier every year so you need to make sure your stand can hold up. Many of these wooden stands and PVC stands never hold up and also break in a few years because they can’t handle the stress. So why deal with them?
Jet Ski Stands are actually quite affordable if you ask me. I’ve seen people spend hundreds on a homemade stand and I always think, “it would have been cheaper and easier to just buy a stand?”.
