We all know about electric cars, electric motorcycles and even electric powered aircraft. But what about the water transport?
Jason Woods has been building boats for a very long time. He started working on a small one-man watercraft more than 15 years ago. The first Kymera model equipped with a water jet engine was released in 2011. A year later, Woods remodeled it for electrical power and presented the project at Kickstarter, a renowned online fundraising platform.
At the moment, the current Kymera model is K-X2. The vehicle represents a surfboard powered by a 10,000-watt electric engine. It weighs just 14,5 kg and can reach the speeds of up to 45 km/h beating its competitors. The watercraft’s dimensions are 213×101×66 cm. The battery lasts an hour on one charge. The boat can be divided into two parts for easy transportation. Kymera K-X2 is currently sold at $5,995, but the price will subsequently go up to $6,495.
