Introducing the Silent Jet Ski

75a4e36f565a08887b7755fb50887b9eOnce upon a time, there was a need.

A need for speed. On the water.

So someone invented the jet ski. And life was good, albeit loud. And filled with gasoline fumes.

Innovation followed. Years at the drawing table. Many waterlogged hours spent in a wetsuit. Countless wipeouts.

And all that wave-drenched experimentation yielded this: the EXO by Exoconcept, possibly the world’s first silent jet ski and a boon to your covert operations arsenal, available for preorder now.

We’ll break it down for you. Basically, it’s the kind of watercraft Batman (or Zohan) would use when infiltrating enemy waters. There’s no traditional motor, so the thing is quiet—it runs on batteries. And instead of sitting on it, you’re lying down on top of it, giving you added furtiveness. The only caveat: its speed tops out at about 31 mph.

So the next time you’re on a stealth mission on the high seas—foiling a jewel heist on a yacht in the Caribbean, say, or dodging the paps after trivia night at Beyoncé’s (it always turns into a Twister marathon for some reason)—you’ll keep one of these close by.

You knew that neoprene tux would come in handy one day.
