AlumaSki Is Like a Jet Ski Tank, But Cooler

Alaska-based Mackinnon Marine Technologies have recently unveiled their latest Jet Ski toy called AlumaSki, a light yet tough personal watercraft designed for exploring shallow, rocky rivers. Its one-piece quarter-inch-thick aluminum hull and powerful Yamaha motor could be the best choice for you to have with when exploring rough places.
It's the jet ski you want to have in those places that are too narrow for an actual boat and too unfriendly for the average fiber-glass Jet Ski.

AlumaSki comes with a very stable almost-flat bottom, drawing 6 inches (15 cm) of water when idling and 2 to 3 when moving - depending on the speed and payload. According to its creator, the design delivers responsive handling and incredible turning performance while allowing it to maintain stable and comfortable in any water source.

The watercraft is powered by an ultra-lightweight, water-cooled, 4-cylinder, 1-liter engine. Electronic fuel injection helps make it become fuel efficient, delivering smooth high-power output with low fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. The non-hull parts of the body are made of thinner marine-grade 3/16-inch (0.47 cm) aluminum.

Weighing 950 lb (420 kg) it is able to carry up to 1,000 lb (454 kg) and it's sized 12 feet long by 5 feet wide (3.7m by 1.5 m). All the performance obviously won’t come cheap and is currently available for preorder. With a selling price of $24,995 (EUR 19,395) it might be considered a water toy for the rich, but that doesn’t make it less cool. In case you want to get a better idea of it, you could also check out the video below.
