Bodrum Marine Group launches Waterbuggy: Go Karting in water
When on a vacation at the beach or on a luxury cruise, adventure water sports definitely are a part of the itinerary of most tourists. One of the common sports is waterskiing in sea-scooters for a short trip nearby, or short races near the local beach. We have earlier shown some examples of sea-scooter such as the Seadoo RXP-X260 and Doo Wake jet-ski, which were of a sporting variety. Budrum Watterbuggy is now here to be your perfect companion for trips like these, even when you are not an expert at handling these things.
Created by Turkey-based Bodrum Marine Group, the Waterbuggy is perfectly compact in size and easy to handle so that anybody can ride with perfect comfort. It has plenty of scope for making sharp turns, even 360-degree ones with the help of its joystick steering. Even if the waters are shallow, the buggy can cruise along fine as it is capable of moving around in depths of only 1 meter. The top speed is pegged at a maximum of 8-10 km/ph which means you can never really go out of control, while enjoying the leisurely time at sea.
The body of the waterbuggy has been created with practical ideation in mind. The anti-corrosion handle, portable fuel and air intake system make it perfect under aquatic conditions, if you are looking for anything in the high-end segment. We guess snorkeling or even underwater adventures are what it could be used for, as you could also seat 2 people other than the pilot itself on each of these sea-scooters. Depending on your preference, there are a few engine options to choose from, which include the Honda 10HP, Mercury 9.9 HP, Mariner 9.8 HP, and the Tohatsu 9.8 HP. However, the pricing for each of these is to be asked from the company itself, as customizing options make for differences in what you might pay for.
