Is right now the best time to sell a jetski? Or is spring? I have an older yamaha 4 seater im trying to sell, but dont know if winter time is the best time or not. I figured people might be looking to buy them with summer comming up, since they arent really used during the wintertime.

id venture to guess you should put it up the first nice day of the year, just like a motorcycle.

Wait for about March/April....

When the weather starts to get back into the upper 50's and 60's with sunshine. That is when people start planning for summer.

List it a couple weeks before the Memorial Day weekend. I bought mine that time of year and sold it a couple years later at about the same time. Lots of people hit the lake that weekend.

I work for a jetski shop generally we sell the most used skis between June and July 4 th the week before the forth being the best. This is nj so July 4 is the real start of the season here. I'm guessing its a suv? They are quite popular with divers and fishermen so I would put some ads on one of those boards.

Yeah, its a SUV. Since you work for a jetski shop, do they generally pay good money for one with low hours, If theres 50-75 hours on it, I'd be surprised.

Yea that would be what we would consider a low hour machine people seem to get hung up on anything over 100. That's a bullet proof engine too non pv yamaha motors are very reliable compared to the newer 1200 pv ones . Buyers might ask to know compression numbers too for that ski should be around 125 per hole.
