Quadski: 45mph on water… and land

The Quadski, the world’s first high-speed amphibian (HSA) personal watercraft, is a combination of between a quad bike and a jet ski, and is touted as the next big superyacht toy. The Quadski is able to reach speeds of 45mph on both water and land, and powered by GIBBS breakthrough technology, transitions between them in seconds. At the push of a button, the Quadski’s wheels deploy when approaching land and retract after entering water. Previously, no commercial amphibian has been able to exceed 10mph on water.
