Video: See Gibbs’ amphibious jet ski in action

While amphibious vehicles are nothing new – the world’s fastest amphibious car can now reach an astonishing 39 knots – it isn’t every day you get to see a motorbike/jet ski hybrid in action.

See the Biski in action

Gibbs, the American manufacturer famous for its amphibious craft, has just released a video of the Biski – a cross between a motorbike and jet ski that is designed to be just as comfortable on land as on water.

Slightly bulkier than your average motorbike and with its back wheel obscured by a jet ski style body, the Biski can reach a top speed on 80 mph on the road and a not unimpressive 32 knots on open water using a dual-jet propulsion system.

However, the most important stat when it comes to amphibious vehicles is always how quickly they can change from road to water mode and the Biski achieves this in a remarkable five seconds. As the video above shows, it happens so quickly that the rider doesn’t even need to get off.

Plus, because the Biski takes a motorbike, rather than a car, as its starting point the savings on weight and space make it an ideal addition to any superyacht toy box. With space for two passengers, it is perfect for exploring both on and off shore and certainly one of the best water toys for those with children.
