    Question on value of 2000/1997 Yamaha's

    Hey guys,

    Been reading here for awhile and enjoy the great information. I live in FL and am thinking of buying a pair of (or at least one) used jet skis for myself, wife and our younger daughter. My concern is I'll end up with trouble (repairs needed) as I don't have a lot of experience with jet ski's, or I'll overpay. So any tips to look for would be helpful or how you'd recommend to know if a ski is in good condition. (find someone who knows and bring them with me?)

    I'm looking at a 1997 Wave Venture 1100 Triple Carb w/ 165 hours and a 2000 XL 800 with about the same hours. They come with a trailer, cosmetically look pretty good and owner says they run well but he does not use them much. He's asking $4500. Does this sound like a fair price? With these hours will I be able to get decent use out of these without an engine rebuild?

    Any info is appreciated. Thanks!

    Welcome to GH forums.

    You live in Florida.
    They are 7-10 years old.
    Over a 100 hours each.
    It REALLY depends on the owner. It could go either way.
