    1996 Sea Doo XP

    Going to look at a 1996 Sea Doo XP. Hull looks in good shape. Handle bar shroud is mildewed and seat is cover/vinvly is jacked. Says runs great and has new carbs. Trim/VTS is inoperable. Comes with trailer. Will have to drive three hours to see in person and test on the water. What would you say it is worth is all checks out other than the VTS?

    Thanks,

    Stunnaman

    From what you describe, depending on what the trailer looks like I'd say $800 max. id want a recipt for the carbs and I would go through the carbs again. do a compression check before anything else yourself. If its a salt machine I would offer much less. If its a salt machine I would consider a new exhaust, head and cylinders. you arent going to know till you open it up. plus you never know how this machine is going to be cobbled up when you pop the seat. If its got a nice yaht club or something I would give a bit more but it all depends on the macine and what condition everything is in. I gave $1100 for mine 4 years ago and it needed a hood, it also came with a beat up aluminum trailer.
