15 Essential (+ 5 Non-Essential) Personal Watercraft Accessories

The experience of flying across water on a Personal Watercraft (PWC) is amazing. Add some cool accessories and it’s out of this world. For any late summer adventures, we’ve put together a list of 15 essential personal watercraft accessories and 5 extras just for fun.

Use our guide to complete your PWC gear or (hey, dealers!) compile suggestions for add-ons in back end sales. 

1. Life Jacket

The first thing to buy after acquiring your PWC. A good life jacket is key to safety and peace of mind. Check state and federal laws for flotation device requirements wherever you ride.

2. Dry Bag/Box

To bring extra stuff with you on the water, there are liquid resistant boxes that can be mounted on the back of a PWC. For a softer alternative, grab a dry bag that you can wear or strap down.

3. GPS/Navigation System

Don’t forget about NOT getting lost – pick up a marine-friendly GPS.

4. Boarding Ladder/Step

Not every model is easy to board. To skip the whole “flailing around until you get a leg over the seat” ordeal, attach a ladder or step.

5. Rear Deck Platform

6. Safety Kit

Many states require at least a fire extinguisher to be on board. Past that, there are kits available with extra safety tools so you’re always prepared.

7. Cover

When out of the water, your PWC is exposed to the elements during transit and storage. Pick up a cover to keep it in top shape.

8. Fenders

Docking collisions can cause some damage. Attachable fenders turn a crunch into a bounce and add an extra layer of protection. 

9. Mirrors

A pair of side mirrors keeps you constantly aware of your surroundings to limit accidents and monitor your tow passengers. Your model may already have these but if not, there are attachable versions available.

10. Fuel Container

Extra fuel on hand is a must for a long day on the water. You’ll find a few fuel tank options out there, including mountable models.

11. Handle Grips

Especially great for fishermen, these angled footrests are a comfortable and secure spot for your feet when fishing off the side of the craft.

13. Super Absorbent Towel

Don’t forget to bring a towel! It can get pretty damp out there, so a fast-drying absorbent towel is handy to keep around for when you want to dry off.

14. Inflatable Tube + Rope
