Joyboat – Joystick-controlled Boat!

When say joystick-controlled boat, the first thing you think it’s probably the toy! In this case you’re wrong, it’s all really. Polish company SkyYacht built the Joyboat – an electric-powered boat controlled by a simple joystick.

The 5-person motorboat (which is referred to as a yacht) is powered by two electric motors, and steered using a joystick. It can run for up to 8-hours on a full charge. This special yacht measures 14 ft (4.28 metres) long and 7 ft (2.17 metres) wide and weights 860 lbs (390 kgs).
