    Value of a 98 xp limited

    Hello all I wanted to see what a good asking price would be for my sea doo 1998 xp limited. I put the ski away in my climate controlled garage back at the end of the 2010 season and winterized the ski. I had changed jobs and was traveling up until this year and the ski just sat. I put a battery in it yesterday to see if it would crank over and the ski cranks over and won't start. I am sure the carbs will need to be rebuilt, gas drained and the ski gone over. If I had time I would take it all apart and rebuild them and get it running but time is not something I have much of now a days. The ski itself looks like new and I have a new (2010) cover for it and also have a trailer for the ski.

    I have checked CL and the prices are all over the place and a lot of the skis are really beat up some need a motor and some run. I figured I would post here to see what people think its worth. Any help would be great.

    TIA

    location, location, location and a ski that can not be lake tested or atleast started and listened to is a "mechanics special" and will be sold for MUCH less than a ski that runs in equal cosmetic condition. Prices for non running 98 XPLs around here are $400 to maybe $750. Runners from $1850-$3500.

    A clean 98 in good running shape is 2500 up here. Non running 500-1000 depending on condition. These prices are during the season, as not much will be selling here for a while.

    About the same here in the mid-south.

    Thank you for all the replies. It gives me an idea of what to list it for. I know I would have a better chance selling it in the spring when people are thinking about the summer but unfortunately my work/travel schedule did not allow for that. Now that winter is coming I need to make some room in the garage or hope some of these cars sell so I have room to store the ski over the winter.

    Anything with 2 in it (2-stroke, 2-seater) does not sell well in today's market.
