Next PWC suggestions?
Have a '02 Yamaha XLT 1200 and I am thinking about getting a 4 stroke. Seems like the Ultra 250x might be what I'm looking for. Looking for another 3 seater as we pull a tube and mostly ride on smaller lakes and rivers. They get a lot of chop and I know the Ultra has a good rough water reputation. I know the gas mileage is very bad but for the shorter distances we would use it, would I really notice it? Are there any other skis I should be looking at? I know the STX-15f is a great ski but its more entry level so I think I'm ready for a step up. The SHO would be my dream ski but way out of my budget. The HO prices aren't much better.

In my opinion;
4 stroke is a great idea; a used Ultra 250 is not so great of an idea. I think almost 70 percent of the poll respondents on this forum with that model have reported gas in the oil, (GIO), and yes -- you will notice the fuel economy on that model. If you needed an offshore animal for racing, then maybe, but for the kind of chop you are describing an Ultra is not required. What is your budget?
