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.
