Marine Toys & Tenders
Marine Toys & Tenders, the same company that introduced us to the eco-friendly JetPad and the maritime recliner that is the Chili Island, has unveiled the Wavekat P70, a new watercraft that’s been described as the “the ultimate driving experience on water.”
That description is still subject to interpretation but you can’t just ignore MT&T’s proud boasts regarding its latest luxury toy. Like most of the company’s other products, the Wavekat P70 isn’t your regular watercraft. It comes with a patented Swiss design that can be best described as a combination of a catamaran-style hull with stylings mused from a small hovercraft without the customary blowers usually included in those types of machines. What the P70 does have is a Tohatsu 70 EPTL two-stroke engine that produces 70 horsepower, enough to propel it to speeds of up 35 knots. The aforementioned layout also makes it possible for the P70 to perform 90-degree turns without losing its balance and power.
MT&T also designed the P70 to simulate the feeling of being in a race car. The single-seat cockpit has an adjustable bucket seat to enhance the craft’s spirit of sportiness. Likewise, having the steering wheel and the foot throttle close to the waterline is a direct hat tip to race cars that have the same configuration.
The only difference is that the P70 isn’t actually meant for racing, even if there’s a lot of temptation to use it as such. What it does provide is a unique experience of enjoying the open waters with a watercraft that can satiate the thrill of going full blast in any body of water.
MT&T is currently taking up orders for the Wavekat P70 at a price of $22,500. That may seem like a little too steep for some, but you’d be surprised how many people would be willing to drop that amount for a chance to experience the P70.
