The release of the Quadrofoil Q2S Electric Personal Watercraft is a long time coming and the wait is almost over. Four years. That is how long it has taken to make this two-seater, four-legged hydrofoil watercraft that has a top speed of 25 mph. Four years feels like a lifetime ago, but this thing looks like it’s worth the wait. I’m not even a “boat guy” and I want one. It looks like a go-cart for the water. And wanting to own this is a no-brainer.
The motor on the Quadrofoil QS2 is powered by several lithium-ion battery packs. The battery packs are reported to last up to 50 miles per charge and take three to four hours to charge. If you’re worried about the battery running out and leaving you stranded, don’t; there is a built-in battery management system that continuously monitors usage to optimize power delivery.
So what is it going to take to get you into one of these when they become available in 2017? Approximately $21,000 for the entry-level model. You have that kind of cash just lying around in your nightstand, don’t you?
