  • Hungarian company Narke claims it's building the world's first electric personal watercraft (PWC) designed for proper series production. The Electrojet is a 60-hp (45-kW), carbon-bodied electric sit-down jet ski capable of doing 35 mph (55 km/h) in near silence.

  • ​Snorkelling may be a great way of seeing marine life close to shore, but things get a little trickier if you want to explore the waters that lie farther out. That's why a group of entrepreneurs created the Aeon Explorer. It's an electric watercraft that lets its riders see beneath the surface.
  • They’re expensive, but quirky weekend toys open the door to a world of fun beyond what cars can offer. BRC, parent to Can-Am and Seadoo, has been busy keeping its lineup of weekend warriors fresh and ready for fun, unleashing a new Can-Am Spyder and Maverick alongside an updated Sea-Doo Spark.
  • Lampuga, the maker of one of the world's fastest electric surfboards, now makes it easier to get out onto the water and motor your way to fast-paced thrills. Its Air board is an inflatable jet-drive surfboard designed to pack small and ride fast.
