Fit for a Bond-esque villain the Mantra jet ski is an impressive-looking vehicle meant to race across open water at staggering speeds. The system was designed, developed and manufactured by Trydent Boats, which includes a race boat expert from the Philippines, an Australian entrepreneur and businessman and an Italian mechanical engineer.
The aesthetics of the Mantra jet ski draw inspiration from vintage cars and classic Philipino racing boats known as Bancarera. The wings of the vehicle draw a striking silhouette but also function to provide hydrodynamic lift at high speeds, while also making the watercraft extremely stable. These stabilizing wings are integral to the safety of the Mantra jet ski as it can reach a top speed of 50mph and is capable of “drift”-style cornering.
