The Wavekat P70

Touted by its designers as the ‘ultimate driving experience on water’, the Wavekat manages to live up to its billing. Able to perform 90° turns at high speeds, the vessel’s catamaran-style layout allows unmatched stability at speeds topping 35 knots, while its foot throttle and steering wheel make the P70 feel akin to driving a go-kart – and who wouldn’t want to drive a racing car on the water? CE-certified as a Class B watercraft, it’s permitted for inshore use, with waves less than 2m and a Beaufort wind speed less than 6.
US$22,500 plus shipping, with a lead time of roughly 55 days. (Outboard engine is sold separately.)
