Jet Ski season is officially upon us. Have you been making the most of it by ripping across the waves on the wide-open waters in your personal water craft (PWC)? If not, then you’re either without a Jet Ski, or are in need of a newer, better, more luxurious one. The difference in performance from a starter model, to one that’s high-end is like what it’s like to drive a Honda Civic compared to driving a Ferrari. The speed, the power, the smoothness all create for a more fun and enjoyable, albeit expensive, ride. Whether you prefer to ride solo, with friends, a partner, or to impress a date – if flying across the water in style is of importance to you – then it’s very important you check out the following most luxurious Jet Skis money can buy.
Sea-Doo GTI 130
Here’s your Porsche Boxster Jet Ski equivalent. It’s not Ferrari, but theSea-Doo GTI 130 is your entry level luxury Jet Ski on a budget. It’s an attractive package that’s got a 600lb weight capacity, intelligent throttle control that’s attached to a Rotax 1503 engine, and seats 3 people comfortably. For just $9,000, think of Sea-Doo GTI 130 as your new summer toy that won’t break the bank.
Your next level up is the sleek and agile Kawasaki STX-15F. Starting at $9,600, the STX-15F treats you to a 1,499cc 4-cylinder engine, multiple steering options, and even a digital learning mode that makes this Jet Ski perfect for those new to the water sport, but are eager to tear up some waves.
Yamaha VX Limited
Are you looking to not only keep up with the Joneses, but zip past them on the open-water? Then the Yamaha VX Limited, starting at $10,889 is the right Jet Ski for you. Not only does it come fully equipped with a 3-cylinder 1049cc engine, but this 3-seater also comes with a single-person towable tube for that one friend you want to make jealous as you toss him a ride.
Sea-Doo GTI Limited 155
What’s grey, blue, green, and white, with a 1503 NH 4-Tec engine featuring iControl, and comes in Touring or Sports Mode? If you said the Sea-Doo GTI Limited 155, you’re right! And for $12,2999, you’d be more than right to be seen showing up to the beach with this bad boy.
Yamaha FX Cruiser SHO
Fast, powerful, sleek, stylish, and attractive – these are the most appropriate adjectives we can think of to describe the all-new Yamaha FX Cruiser SHO. You’ll definitely be making waves with this model as it’s got adjustable tilt steering, cruise assist for navigating through wake zones, a water temperature display, and two fully watertight storage slots. Price: $14,999.
If you want a ride smoother than the surface of the water on a windless day, then the Sea-Doo RXT-X260 with it’s 1503 HO 4-Tec whisper quiet engine is for you. What makes this ride so smooth is not only what’s on the inside, but what’s on the out as well, as it’s got a comfy Ergolock seat along with tilt steering for whatever position you like to ride in. The RXT-X260 also includes a spacious rear storage compartment for some convenience to go along with that comfort. Price: $16,899
Yamaha FX SVHO
Now we’re getting to the higher-end of the high-end models, as Jet Skis like this Yamaha FX SVHO combine speed, performance, comfort – everything you could want all in one package. The Yamaha FX SVHO was named the 2015 Jet Ski of the year by Watercraft Magazine because of its supercharged 4-cylinder, 4-stroke, 1812cc engine, with no wake control that makes it easier to rip across calmer waters without compromising your top-speed. The best part if the price, just $15,000 for this model, which as you’ll see on the next, is a real steal.
Belassi B3R Sport
So here we are; the Rolls Royce, the Ferrari, the Crème de la Crème of Jet Skis. The Belassi B3R Sport is the fastest Jet Ski on the market, and is loaded with the most advanced features money can buy. These features include a 3-cylinder turbocharged intercooling engine, stability control, and a backlit display that monitors water temperate and wave height. Plus, it’s got the slickest (and sickest) design of any PWC on the sea – if we do say so ourselves. But if you’re looking to own the best, you’re going to have to pay the most as the Belassi B3R Sport starts at $30,000.
