AlumaSki Aluminum Jet Ski

You’ve probably never seen someone on Jet Ski, making waves in a shallow river or stream, and with good reason: That’d be a few thousand bucks flushed down the drain.
But the AlumaSki from Alaska-based Mackinnon Marine Technologies’ promises to go places no fiberglass-hulled watercraft would ever dare tread.

Thanks to a one-piece quarter-inch-thick aluminum hull, the AlumaSki can handle shallow waterways and encounters with rocks the way a Jet Ski never could. It can carry three passengers or up to 1,000 lbs., and it has a very stable almost-flat bottom, drawing 6 inches of water when idling and 2 to 3 when moving. A water-cooled, electronic fuel-injected Yamaha 1,052cc 4-cylinder, 4-stroke marine engine turns out 110 hp with a reported top speed of up to 60 mph. It’s up for pre-order now if you’ve got $25,000.
