WTB Seadoo w/ trailer, but don't know which model I want?...advice please
Posted 27 August 2009 - 11:09 PM
My first concern is what type of boat? Is there a particular year, make, and model should I be looking for? I have found a few 97 Sportster Sea Doos for a fair price. Under 3k sounds good for me.
I also have a few restrictions on storage. Ultimately the boat w/ trailer can't exceed 19' x 8'.9". I don't mind a small boat at all actually if it's a jet boat.
I don't really have any idea of how much power I will want. I think if the boat goes 40 mph I think that's good? As long as it's decent, I'm happy. I don't need 60 mph speeds....
I want to hop around on other peoples wakes while enjoying the sun and water.
I think my budget is around 2500 or less. I would love to get a 90's Jet Boat for 2100 though with trailer. If I have to, I will spend a little more.
Do all SeaDoo's come with speakers built into the boat? I like that accessory. I would like to come with 4 seat as well if possible...
Please bare with me. I'm a little new .

Is one 800cc engine enough?
I might be able to spend $3400 if the boat doesn't need too much TLC. Maybe it's wise to spend around 3k to get one that doesn't need "fixing up"?
Mostly it'll be myself and one other person. Maybe even 3. But I would like to be able to seat 4 just in case.
If I can, I'd like it to have night running lights as well. And the stereo built-in is also a plus.
Can you attach a sun canopy to these older models?
If something should break or the engine needs a tuneup where do I go?.... I have marinas around me in Lake Hopatcong NJ.

Yes you can have an after-maket canopy installed and these small boats do have lights for night riding but do not come with an OEM stero installed but as i said before it is not too hard to install one yourself
