Jet Ski Facts

Consider A Few Facts About Personal Watercraft
By: Kristin Young, PWIA
Facts on personal watercraft:

  • A 1997 study in the Florida Keys found personal watercraft do not harm seagrass beds or create significant water turbulence.
  • Personal watercraft manufacturers have gone to great lengths to protect the environment, investing more than $1 billion in technological advances since 1998 that have resulted in cleaner, quieter and more efficient crafts.  Today's PWCs have 75% fewer emissions and are up to 70% quieter than 1998 models. 
  • Personal watercraft and outboard motors use the same two-stroke engine technology. The new technology being used on PWC today, called direct injection, reduces emissions by 75% over conventional outboard motors.
  • The personal watercraft industry strongly advocates minimum age requirements, mandatory boating education and shoreline sound reduction legislation.  In fact, the personal watercraft industry supported the 1996 boating education law in Florida which requires all renters born after 1980 pass an examine before riding.  Since its passage, personal watercraft use has increased 39% while accidents decreased by 22%.
  • Dedicated to the well-being of our marine life and water safety, the personal watercraft industry has loaned more than 11,000 personal watercraft to federal, state and local agencies nationwide.  In Florida, more than 280 personal watercraft were donated to state and local law enforcement officials.  These crafts have been used for saving lives, patrolling, removing debris and saving endangered wildlife.  Personal watercraft donated by the industry have been used to patrol manatee habits to ensure boaters respect speed limits.
