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.”

Jet boats

Another wide-ranging powerboat, jet boats can be a modest 12 feet or reach lengths of 60 feet or more. Fast and maneuverable, they can be speed-of-light cruisers for the fastest day trip ever.

And though they're capable of wending through shallow waterways, their sensitive engines can quickly get clogged with weeds, silt, mud and litter.

Prices range as widely as the models, with small jet boats starting at $15,000 and climbing to well over a million. Used models start at about $3,000 and rise accordingly.
