Jet Blade

The Jet Blade is a single rider personal watercraft that is stable yet agile. The Jet Blade will incorporate a three ski design that utilizes two skis in the front of the craft and one ski in the rear. These skis are located in spaced relation below an aluminum hull and operate to hydrodynamically lift the Jet Blade to a cruise position by relative water flow upon the undersides of the skis.
