Make quite a splash! Hammacher Schlemmer is proud to feature some of the most extreme watercraft you’ll find anywhere. Unlike common motorboats, these marvelous amphibious vehicles deliver the unique gift of speedy travel over water in amazing and unexpected ways.
This flying hovercraft glides over land and water yet also soars in the air up to 70 mph with the aid of integrated wings. Operating in fresh- or saltwater and up to 30% inclines over most terrain, its wings and horizontal elevator enable pilots to simply hop over water- or land-based obstacles unsurmountable to a typical hovercraft.
Heads will be turning at the sight of this streamlined, two-person watercraft that breaches and submerges just like Orca, the killer whale. A pilot, protected beneath a watertight acrylic canopy, pushes and pulls twin control levers to articulate the whale’s pectoral fins for rolls and dives. It can hydroplane up to 50 mph over the water’s surface and it can cruise up to 25 mph while submerged.
This amphibious ATV is the world’s first high-speed all-terrain vehicle that travels both over the land and water at up to 45 mph. Upon entering the water, its retraction system raises the wheels above the waterline to enable smooth waterborne riding in less than five seconds. The engine’s power automatically transfers to a jet drive that propels the craft to planing speed in seconds while the handle bars provide easy maneuvering over the water.
And for those who prefer the head-turning value of a unique gift over speed, this dragon pedal boat recalls a visit to the amusement park with a leisurely day of fun for up to two adults. Rising like a serpent six feet above the water’s surface, its statuesque form guarantees attention from other boaters, while its quiet, human-powered operation ensures a pleasurable time on the water.
