Scubajet is a multifunctional water sport motor that brings power to multiple styles of watercraft. It is a portable electric engine for canoeing, scuba diving and stand up paddling. It has a 3.1-kW water-cooled motor that sucks water in through the 360-degree intake and shoots forward through the sea, delivering quick, reactive propulsion at the push of the remote control.
It’s an all-in-one component slips onto your boat without the need for an external battery pack. The adapter secures to the top of the Scubajet and then slips into the fin box of the paddleboard or clamps to the back of the dinghy. The Scubajet is controlled via wireless remote to turn it on and adjust speed. An auto shut-off cuts power if the rider falls into the water or if the remote control strays too far from the drive. It has several motor modes, from slow speed and optimized battery life for scuba diving to fast, high-powered sprinting. Top speed is listed at 6 knots (11 km/h). It weighs about 2.4 kg.
Currently it is subject of Kickstarter campaign, and team hopes to raise €150,000 to finish off the development process and get production started.
