Imagine a water skier behind it. A jet ski is a personal watercraft for 1-4 people. The passangers sit on top of a jet ski with their legs on either side.

There is no difference. A jet ski is a type of powerboat. the actual definition of a powerboat is a motorboat designed for racing or recreation.

How to maintain my jet ski?


If you plan to store a jet ski in a garage, you will need to make sure it is dry and cool and with limited exposure to the sun. In general, you need to do what you can to prevent rust and other grime that eventually may cause mechanical issues.

Washing your jet ski is also needed after every use. You can use your car wash products. I also suggest to read the user's manual, it may include tips about maintaining your jet ski.

You can protect the engine with a special spray and water repellant.

If you plan to store your jet ski for a while, it is preferred that you will disconnect the battery.

I have a 2001 ultra 130 di jet ski and with two people on it that do not weigh much the jet ski will roll over at idle speed if you are not really carefull. Please help, it is a great jet ski for one...


Many hulls when turned sharply below planing speed will flip when riding two up. When wearing a neoprene suit you need to jump in periodically just to cool off. Make sure you have drained all the compartments in the hull of water every time you take the boat out of the water. I purchased a ski once that would not plane off and had a dry engine compartment. When I pulled the plug at the back several gallons of water came out. It made all the difference in the world losing all the ballast.
