Quadski XL: The Half-Jetski, Half-Quadcycle Can Now Ride Two People At A Time

We're huge fans of the Quadski and its double-duty talents, ripping through bodies of water as capably as it does on rugged terrains.  Except it only had enough space to sit one, which ruled out meeting a girl at the beach and spending the day impressing her with your amphibious driving skills.  Not the case with the new Quadski XL, a two-seater version of the versatile recreational ride.

Like its single-seat brother, the vehicle can transform from ATV to watercraft at the push of a button, letting you transfer from land to water and vice versa in under five seconds.  Despite being a bit larger than the non-XL version (overall length and wheelbase grew by 11.8 inches), it can hit the same speeds, topping out at 45mph on both land and water.

The Quadski XL is powered by a BMW Motorrad K1300cc 4-stroke engine that puts out 140 hp and 87 ft-lbs of torque.  It uses Gibbs' proprietary jet drive for water propulsion, along with independent coil spring suspension and disc brakes on all four wheels for land travel.  Features include a monocoque dual skin composite hull, a stainless steel five-blade impeller, and a ground clearance of 8.6 inches.  It weighs 1,437 pounds.

Priced starting at $47,650, the Quadski XL isn't that much more expensive compared to jetskis, all while letting you explore both the water and nearby islands on the exact same vehicle.  It's available now.

    Not that much more expensive that JetSkis? For $47k, I can buy two jet skis and 2 atvs. How is that the same?
