Do you like thrills and you’re tired of waiting in line to rent a jet ski? Why not buy one! New or used, solo or three-seater, the choice is vast in the field.
How to acquire a jet ski?
The regulations are quite simple. Jet skis can not be bought before the age of 16 and, above all, a boat license is required to obtain a motorized watercraft (NM), provided that its engine exceeds 4.5 kW (more than 6 horses) in power. The “coastal” sea license allows you to sail at sea as well as in the water, provided you stay 6 nautical miles from the coast.
Which jet ski for what use?
In terms of sea scooters, the choice is vast. Two types of models exist depending on the use you want to make.
- Saddle spray:
It is the most convivial, the machine where you sit comfortably, alone or with others, to enjoy a ride with friends or family. It’s also the easiest to fly. The sensations are there and the security too. Finally, the convenience of the saddle jet invites to ride hours without difficulty, for a swim or a discovery of the coast. However, be aware that a two-seater will rarely be nice if you are two and it will be better to opt for a three-seater.
- Jet spray:
The spray, or stand-up, is the most physical of the two. It is installed standing and maneuvering via an articulated arm that offers an unparalleled feeling of freedom. To reach this level, however, one must know how to master the machine, at the risk of getting tired quickly and not being able to enjoy all its potential. It is the ideal vehicle for soloists, extreme amateurs, loopers and other waterfalls.
New or used?
The question will depend on your practice. If you live year-round near a stretch of water or the sea and plan to launch it frequently, a new jet ski is a great investment. However, a powerful engine or a three-seater weigh down the machine, which will be more difficult to manage, but more stable at sea; a lightweight motorcycle will provide better handling, but for solitary use. In addition, the latter will be less controllable on sea, agitated, than on water.
If on the other hand you can only enjoy a few weeks a year, it seems unprofitable to buy a new vehicle, especially since the little used skis-jets oxidize quickly. If you are starting out, contact a NM sales concession: apart from the guarantee, you will benefit from wise advice on the choice of the machine as well as its driving. For connoisseurs, why not a market between individuals, but do not hesitate to test the car on the water.
