The antique era of the personal water craft world began in 1950 and ended in 1979. These were the years of discovery, design, testing and wonder. Wondering if these product were going to make it from the curiosity factor to the sales pitch and out the door in the hands of a new enthusiast. Some models are rare, and many only exist in photos and old news articles, and a few are barn finds and have been reconditioned.
An older model personal water craft increases in personal satisfaction and value in the beholder’s position because of nostalgia, reminiscing about the ‘good old days’, acquiring a PWC that you couldn’t afford at the time, a collector, or investment or simply because collecting is great fun and a sense of pride!
