The summer has passed, but not for nothing as it inspired Matt De Bellefeuille to create the FoilJet MR 1 concept. At its base, the idea is simple, put a hydrofoil on a jet ski and see what it can do. But what attracts the most is the motorcycle-like riding position and the bold design.

Ingeniously built, the foil can be raised and lowered depending on the water’s depth and as you gain speed, the FoilJet MR 1 becomes foil borne, reduces drag and, implicit, increases speed and maneuverability.

Powering it is a 48 Volt electric engine developing 20 hp. The designer claims that the battery requires only ten minutes of charging before a three hours ride on water so you should be in for it…until you hear about the $15,000 price, that is.
