Video: French Boatbuilder Promises New Luxury Electric PWC Coming in 2024

Just when we thought the electric PWC world couldn’t get any weirder, along comes the Supermarine MM01. The MM01 looks like something straight out of a science fiction movie, with its aerodynamic shape and curvy bow. The team out of France consulted with aerospace engineers to nail down the design. Bouvet Freres Marine, a company out of France, will build a limited-edition series of the electric jet ski. It is being billed as the world’s first “Hyper Jet.”

They will produce 30 Hyper Jets. The MM01 will have an electric motor that generates 300 hp to give it a top speed of 75mph. The exterior of the watercraft will be comprised of a lightweight carbon-Kevlar. Check this out, the storage trunk is lined with leather and a champagne holder is fitted under the seat so you can pop the cork for a special occasion!

The company says it is putting creativity over profitability by spending over 500-man hours to build each hyper jet. This is the reasoning behind offering only offer a limited number of the expensive machines.

The price of the MM01 is rumored to be twice as much as the Maverick GT. The MM01 is an elite class of jet ski as confirmed by this quote from Bouvet Freres Marine: “We are part of a radically different segment, without seeking to compete with the existing market, whether in terms of supply or volume.” Testing will begin later this year and the Supermarine MM01 is expected to hit the market in 2024.
