Spring will be here before you know it which means it’s almost time to get your jetski back on the water! But….before you go on your first ride of the season, is your jetski ready? Have you spring prepped it? I the battery good? Do you need spark plugs? Many of these are usually thought of by watercraft owners but one thing that often gets overlooked is DETAILING. Let’s take a look at why detailing may be just as important as the spark plugs or new battery or new steering cable etc.


Detailing your jetski can offer several benefits, including:

Protecting the finish: Regular cleaning and waxing can help protect the finish of your jetski and prevent damage from UV rays, salt water, and other environmental elements.

Improving appearance: Detailing can help make your jetski look its best, restoring the original shine and luster of the finish.

Maintaining value: By keeping your jetski looking well-maintained and in good condition, you can help preserve its resale value.

Enhancing performance: A thorough cleaning can help improve the performance of your jetski by removing any built-up debris or deposits that may be affecting its performance.

Preventing damage: Regular cleaning and maintenance can help prevent damage from forming on your jetski, making it last longer and function better.

Overall, detailing your jetski is a great way to keep it looking great, functioning well, and preserving its value over time.


How Often Should I have my Jetski Detailed?


The frequency at which you should have your jet ski detailed depends on several factors, including the amount of use it gets, the environmental conditions it is exposed to, and your personal preferences. Here are some general guidelines:

  • If you use your jet ski frequently, it is recommended to have it detailed at least once a year to maintain its appearance and protect it from the elements.
  • If you use your jet ski infrequently or keep it covered when not in use, you may be able to get away with having it detailed every two years.
  • If you use your jet ski in salt water, it’s essential to have it detailed more frequently as salt water can cause corrosion and other damage. In this case, you may want to have it detailed twice a year or more.

Ultimately, the frequency of detailing will depend on your personal preferences and the condition of your jet ski. If you want to keep it looking its best and protect it from damage, it’s best to have it detailed regularly.
