Mako Slingshot – New Powered Wakeboard

Mako Slingshot

The Mako Slingshot reinvents the way you play on the water and opens the door to an entirely new level of surfing, redefining the genre. This is a jetboard built on an insatiable thirst for the ultimate of experiences. Whether carving around the coastline or tearing across a lake, the Mako Slingshot is the ultimate watercraft to give you that adrenaline buzz and ear-to-ear grin. It sounds like the sort of thing Q would give James Bond, but the Slingshot is powered by a 100cc two-stroke engine hooked up to a direct-drive axial-flow jet drive. Top speed is north of 30 mph (48 km/h), but Mako also says the power plant has been tuned for punchy low-down torque.

With a 2.8-liter (0.74-gal) fuel tank, riders will be able to cruise for about 40 minutes before they need to top up with 95 RON fuel. The engine is held on easy-to-access mounting points, and Mako says there are multiple bulkheads and drainage channels to keep it clean. Measuring up at 1.88 m (74 in) long and 59.6 cm (23.5 in) wide, the board’s carbon fiber construction makes it light, easily transportable and fits comfortably into the back of your car; so there’s no need for a trailer to help you get where you want to go, or a friend to lend a hand when carrying the Mako Slingshot down to the water. Unfortunately, the featherweight construction also prevents anyone over 100 kg (220 lb) from using the board.
With a starting price of £7,500 or around $9,800, this stunning wakeboard is only for the well-heeled owners.
