Makai Jet Powered Kayak

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.

See more pictures, video, and details after the break.

The Mokai

MOKAI� – simplicity and performance.

Our unique combination hull is powered by a HONDA 4 stroke engine coupled to our jet propulsion system. This patented design results in a removable power train that requires less than one minute to assemble or disassemble, without tools. The MOKAI can be transported on top of your vehicle, eliminating the need for a trailer.

What other watercraft offers all these benefits:
  • Easy to operate
  • Low running costs
  • Stable, low center of gravity
  • Versatile, equally suited for hunting, fishing or exploring

Technical Data

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.

    please send me more info! I like the design but want more performance what do you have to offer 2 stroke engine perhaps? I would consider this product but am looking something more along the lines of the kind of thrill I get out of my twin turbo BMW or my Ducati motorcycle I think your design is perfect but lets see some power under the hood then you have me SOLD!

    Another anti-kayak kayak. Sure glad it weighs in at over a hundred pounds – the average person won’t be throwing this around like a normal kayak. Hopefully the Mokai will get stuck in the shallows where a regular kayak can go. The best drawback of all, it’s loud and noisy which will totally ruin the outdoor experience for whoever uses it. Hope it runs hot too making it miserable for the buyer of this product. You notice the video only shows it on smooth surface water? This tank looks like it would sink trying to slice through a little 2-foot chop. Hahaha.

    wow bob !you suck!i have used kayaks before and you cant go upstream! and if you had a clue you would understand they come with a paddle so you dont have to use the motor and “ruin” the outdoor expierience! but once you get downstream in this thing(or just get tired of rowing all day) you dont need to call for a ride to pick you up since you can go upstream at 15mph. and god forbid you have an emergency in gods playground you can deffanitly get to help much quicker in one of these. and by the way 4 inches of draw is not likely to get you stuck to many places and if it does you prob shouldent be there in a boat anyway since waterproof hiking boots usually are good for that!

    I saw one come up our smallie river the other day.way unerpowered,very ,very ,very loud.the owner had on ear plugs and no if enginered right but buy a $1000 waverunner,spend a grand on an aluminum hull,weld on some rod holders and leave everyone else at home.waste of money unless youwant only looks.

    HAve on eof these and just finished up 10 days in the everglades…where we regularly did 20 miles days to the bac bays, where we sight fished for reds, and did well or, if the fishing sucked, we powered out front and hit the back of pavillion key or comber keys. No head to tides, no head to winds, sure, not a pure yak, got 6 of those, but for down there….what a fantastic ride!!! Next year looking at a flaming to chokoloskee trip

    Good work , I’d like 2 c a two man craft soon with a quieter engine .maybe a split hull will do better on the swells…shud b a fishing craft ….fish storage space anchor deck n rod stands….

    I own a couple of Kayaks however, after a 15 km paddle you get tired on the way back.
    Hence, I ordered the all new Mokai Es-Kape with the center-hatch and of course the MoKart. I like the modular design, well suited for transportation in my SUV.

    I really would like info on the Mokai I want to buy one of them for fishing thank you

    Very cool people! Only I see to keep cost down you used a plastic hull. Great for impact resistance butt he so is kevlar/carbon and epoxy. Yes the cost is much greater,but if you offer a high end version you will see profits soar. America loves just the word carbon fiber.
    In addition the weight saving alone should propel the craft much faster. Seems to me that if a waverunner can do 60m.p.h. in a fiberglass hull. I see no reason yours can’t do that to.
    Paying close attention to resistance vs. Mass and thrust. Personally given one of these INclude would immediately tool it and make a super strong super light hull tripling the speed.

    Where can I purchase a fuel tank for 2010 Mokai?
