The Maverick GT Electric PWC is in a League of its Own

The Maverick GT Jet RIB and Energy Platform Electric Jet Ski is a silent multi-functional monster. It was designed by Nico Sell who is a serial tech entrepreneur. She is also into tow-in surfing, so it was only natural for she and her team to build a PWC that could be used for towing into big wave spots like Mavericks. They wanted it to be stylish as well for use as a tender for yachts, so they created it in such a way that it would fit into its matching RIB hull.

The two-seat Maverick is powered by a 100-kWh battery with a 350-horsepower electric engine. The machine can reach top speeds over 70mph and has a range of 50-100 miles. The Maverick has a carbon fiber body and was designed with a deeper-V than the average ski, giving it an edge in huge waves like Jaws, which is notorious for eating jet skis. The RIB section will come in a bare-bones tow version for hauling surfers and a party version that seats 8. A fishing version is also in the works.

The Maverick battery system is designed to work on land as well. It can be used to power your home during a power outage. The Maverick will premier Friday during Miami’s Art Basel at the Arsenale. It has a list price of $150,000 for the PWC and if you want the whole package, be prepared to drop $500,000. No, we’re not joking.
