Updated on March 19th, 2022

jet ski bill of sale is a document given to the buyer of a personal watercraft (PWC) to prove the sale occurred. The new owner can then use the bill of sale to register their jet ski with their state DMV. The form is not long or complicated, but it does require accurate information on the parties engaging in the transaction, the specifications of the watercraft, the sale price, and each party’s signature.

Jet Ski Registration Requirements

The majority of states require jet skis to be registered in the same manner as a standard boat. This process varies state-by-state but, in general, the owner will need to bring the bill of sale, their ID, cash for paying the required fees (should be under $75), and a state-specific application form to the registration office. See your state’s registration office for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need a boating license for a jet ski?

If the state you are registering the jet ski requires boating licenses for standard boats, then a license is most likely required. This is because states commonly classify PWCs as boats, even though they are only a fraction of the size. It is often based on age, requiring those under 18 to obtain a license to operate a PWC. Even for states that don’t require boating licenses, check local laws to ensure there are no age restrictions.

How much is jet ski insurance?

According to TrustedChoice, a person can look to spend an average of $300 to $500 for PWC insurance. As they point out, insurance is priced on a per-case basis and there are no set amounts. Factors include the insured person’s age, driving record, the type of coverage, and the speed/model of the jet ski.

How much should I sell my jet ski for?

The factors that are involved in the pricing of a jet ski include the age of the watercraft,  power (cubic centimeters or “cc’s”), make, model, and condition. The current state of the market can heavily impact the sale as well. For states that experience a cold winter, the majority of jet ski sales will take place in spring and throughout the summer. Seeing what others sell for is the easiest method – go to PWC Trader and search for make and models similar to yours.
