Gadget King likes this gadget and isn’t above begging for a sample. (Dear Mokai, please send us a product sample for a detailed review, pleeeeaaase.) Enough of the shameless begging.
The folks at Mokai have created a kayak that goes from good old fashioned human power to a jet-propelled kayak in less than one minute. This jet powered beast is powered by a 6hp Honda (= reliable) motor coupled to a jet propulsion system. The Mokai also has a large storage area for your gadgets, a top speed of 15mph, and a weight capacity of 360 lbs (one fat peep welcome, or two skinny peeps). Yours for about $3,450.

MOKAI is built to perform and built to last. Several outside testing facilities assisted in the design and engineering of Mokai. Half scale Hydrodynamic (water tunnel) testing was performed to verify the hull design and drag efficiencies. A Finite Element Analysis was also conducted to determine the maximum yield strength.
The MOKAI watercraft comes with a complete bow to stern warranty protection for 2 years. Being a factory direct company, you might have reservations about our ability to address service issues. We designed the MOKAI with unique modular design so all major systems can be removed from the boat in less than a minute, allowing for trouble free service in the field. A call to our factory is the first step. A trained representative will work with you to trouble shoot any issue you may be having. A course of action will be determined, which will either be for MOKAI to send out replacement parts for customer installation or for the customer to return to us the defective component for repair or replacement. Our service team has a 24 hr turn around. This means that warranty or service issues are on the bench and out the same day as received. If we can not correct the issue a new component will be sent.
We stand behind our product 100% and are committed to maintaining happy customers.
