2024 Jet Ski Prices Chart for New & Used Models

So, you’re curious about the cost of a jet ski? It’s a question that pops up quite often, and what’s really intriguing is how some folks think they can snag one for a mere $5,000.

But when I break it to them that a few models can go well above $20,000, their jaws tend to hit the floor. The inevitable next question is, “Why on earth are jet skis so expensive?”

Well, my friends, let me break it down.

About The Current Year

In the world of watercraft, things have evolved, and boats, in general, have become pricier. So, in 2024, if you’re eyeing a shiny new jet ski, be prepared to shell out anywhere from $7,000 to a whopping $22,000. The final price tag depends on factors like the engine, body, and features you’ve got your heart set on.

Now, let’s do the math. The average cost hovers around $14,400. To put things in perspective, two decades ago, that kind of money could’ve landed you a halfway decent boat. Oh, how times have changed!

The Lowest & The Highest

Curious about the price extremes?

Well, the Sea-Doo Spark 60HP sits on the affordable end at $6,999, while the Kawasaki ULTRA 310LX reigns supreme as the priciest model at $21,199.

Use My Calculator For An Estimated Out The Door Price

But wait, there’s more to consider! Those prices I just mentioned don’t even cover taxes, fees, and a trailer. I get it; it can get pretty confusing real fast.

That’s precisely why I’ve cooked up a pricing calculator that’s based on real-world scenarios, not those useless ones you stumble upon elsewhere on the internet.

Let’s keep it real, folks; the dealership tends to charge in prep, freight, and doc fees, so you might as well use a calculator that’s got all that covered.

Where To Find Used PWC Prices?

Several watercraft on stands on 3 high rack.

If you’re looking for Used PWC Values or trade-in value, I have a tool for that called “Steven Used PWC Values (SUP Values)“.

I also have a post that goes over other ways to figure out how much you should pay for a used waverunner here.

How Much Are Used Watercraft?

The average used-values ranges from $2,000 to $15,000 depending on the year, shape, and condition. They can go for more or less depending on how new the model is, its condition along with market conditions.

Just watch out for scammers in the used market, they’re on the rise. They’ll rope you into a cheap, too good to be true deal, and run away with your money. I’m getting a lot more emails from people about this, and it seems to be getting worse.

Interesting Pricing Tidbits About Watercraft Over The years

I built a used PWC values tool to calculate values for used models, and in doing so, I have a large database of historic numbers dating back to 1990 to 2024. With this data, I can calculate interesting tidbits through the years.

The Average & Median Costs Over Time

  • Average-Price (1990-2024): $10,019.93
  • Average-Price (Past 5 Years): $12,923.90.
  • Median-Price (1990-2024): $9,399
  • Median-Price (Past 5 Years): $12,449

The average PWC value has increased by approximately $3,095 over the past 10 years.​

In the past 10 years, the cheapest watercraft was the 2015 Sea-Doo Spark 2up 60HP at $4,999.

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 StevenInSales.com 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.

  1. In 2020, with the high demand for jet ski’s, is it reasonable to pay MSRP for a new SeaDoo, or should I be able to negotiate for below MSRP pricing? Also, they are charging $2,000 for “Freight and Setup” and then lowered it down to $1,500 when I questioned it. $1,500 still seems high to me, especially on a GTR 230 that they are quoting at full MSRP. $500 – $750 seems reasonable to me, but not $1,500. Would love your thoughts. Thanks in advance!

    • In 2020 all new jet skis and used were going for MSRP plus plus. It’s looking like 2021 is going to be the same. A fair deal would be MSRP plus $1k (if you ask me) but if that dealer has someone willing to pay more it’s a tough position. The dealer could also be playing hardball, have them break down the cost, and email it to you so you can see if the numbers make sense. Things like freight do cost the dealership money, it’s usually about $400-$500. They also have to pay people to put it together and the manufacturer doesn’t help with disposing of the crate so there is a cost in that too. I have a guide that goes over more tips here… https://www.steveninsales.com/new-jet-ski-buyers-guide/

  2. Hi thanks for the great info. I’m looking at buying a 2019 Sea Doo GTX 155 and new trailer for $6,000 AUD. It has 425 hours on it as it was used at a rescue jet ski in Sydney. I am part of the rescue service so know the ski well and know it was very well looked after and serviced as per manufacturers requirements. Last service a month ago. They do get a lot of use as they are on the water for 8 hours a day on the weekends all summer. Hoping that if it’s looked after this is a really good buy. Please let me know. Thanks.

    • I had to look up the conversion to USD, it’s about $4k USD. That is a lot of hours for 2019 GTX 155 but that is a really cheap price and you know the watercraft and how it runs. Normally I would say no but since you know the history well and that price is really attractive for a 2019 I would go for it. Just know if you go to sell it later you’ll have a hard time due to the hours. That 155HP engine is solid and that body very comfortable. If it was me in your situation I would buy it, that’s not a bad deal.
