Minx 18V – Poor Mans Speedboat

Minx 18V Speedboat

Love the idea of going 75mpg-80mph on the water but don’t want to go broke to do it?  The Minx 18V might be just the boat for you.  The Minx model 18V powerboat has one purpose (other than a great price)… going fast.  The boat is made to be aerodynamic and has gull-wing shaped sides and bow to help the boat cut through the air.

Unlike most other high-performance vehicles the four-seater Minx 18V is attempting to appeal to a broader market and with a starting price of USD$20,490 fills a gap between $12,00 jet skis and $30,000 current model speed boats.

Read on for more details.

The limited capacity allows for an efficient mix of high-speed and low-cost and since the boat rides so close to the water, Minx claims to offer a high-adrenaline experience similar to a go-kart or formula one race car, as well as solid turning, with no hopping or sliding, and a stable ride.

The basic package includes a Mercury 150 EFI two-stroke outboard motor and single axle trailer. For $1500 more you get a Mercury 150 OptiMax motor and trailer, while for $3700 more than the base price you get the added power of a Mercury 175 Pro XS OptiMax motor and trailer.
