The jet skis of the future


Although at the moment it is only a prototype, the Dolphin Hydrofoil watercraft , designed by engineer Nikko Van Stolk, meets all the requirements to become the watercraft of the future. Its creator has conceived two hydrofoils , an elliptical front one and a rear one, which allow it to rise when moving, almost as if it were flying. This reduces resistance to waves and helps the vehicle glide on the surface of the water with great fluidity, also reaching more speed than current jet skis.

When braking, both hydrofoils sink and the Dolphin Hydrofoil remains floating on its central structure.
