It ain't rocket science

While you might feel like you've hit warp factor 10 in these powerful vessels, jet propulsion is as close as your local outdoor shop. Both high-powered jet boats and motorcycle-style PWCs operate on the same principle - the vessel is propelled by water shot out the back of the craft - no propellers involved. Originally designed to navigate New Zealand's shallow, fast-flowing rivers, today's jet-powered watercraft are found world-wide and can take you almost anywhere. And unlike powerboats , jet boats can stop fairly quickly by reversing the engines in a trick called the “Hamilton Turn.”
