The Dolphin Hydrofoil personal watercraft is a prototype for a lighter and sleeker type of jet ski. Based in the United States, designer Nikko van Solk's renderings present a streamlined vehicle that appears to skim the water's surface.

The sporty craft is modeled with great emphasis on front and rear hydrofoils that will serve to lift the body of the Dolphin above the water, fostering its ability to reach greater speeds with less resistance. For this reason, the PWC's impeller can be found low on the dagger board which will keep the Dolphin Hydrofoil steady through sharp turns. Based on the popularity of its contemporary counterparts, this toy is bound to take off. Stats for Streamlined Water-Skimmers Trending: Older & Warm
