Quickboat Foldable Boat

Foldable boats are not a new concept at all. While we’ve been covering them for the past couple of years, the concept has been put into action since the 1970s. The Quickboat however offers a ton of innovation, and looks to become the end all be all for folding water vessels.

There has always been one huge issue with these contraptions. In order to make a foldable watercraft, product designers have had to use materials that were flexible and lightweight. While that works great for transportation, it creates a flimsy vehicle on the water. The Australian brand behind Quickboats have teamed up with both aerospace engineers and industrial designers to solve this problem once and for all, using composite materials like Kevlar, foam cores and high-end glass. The end result is a stable and highly buoyant watercraft that can be assembled in literally one minute. The boat comes packaged in two lightweight bags, and with 2 people can be ready to hit the ocean, lake or river in just 60 seconds. The only thing it’s missing is a motor, but the boat can easily be equipped with any outboard motor up to 10 horsepower. Watch the video below.
