    Shuttle Craft....? Anyone?....

    I've been thinking for the past few months about getting a small 18-20 footer. In my endless search I found this! I think it's awesome! Anyone here have one? You can just pull your ski into it and push around 6 people plus 2-3 in the ski? When you wanna ride alone you just take it out and go! I dont think our skies have a problem at all pushing this with all the HP we have. Kind of expensive though at $11,495 but a small boat will cost way more than that. You can put a radio and a few marine speakers and blast away.

    Any inputs are welcome....good or bad please!

    it crossed my mind as well... bc u can ride at night with it, can pack some gear and a boat load of friends.... de-tach it and leave it anchored and go ride ur ski and pick it back up at the end of the day....

    but not the cheapest things in the world.... u'll see a few used ones flaoting around on ebay sometimes

    Yeah I saw one but its the older, smaller model.

    You know if there are other brands by the way? Cuz I found another one called Jetmate, but it's smaller and not as appealing as this one. Cheaper though at $7,000

    At those prices why not just buy a boat.

    Please do so, because I have been searching for a few weeks. All I have found is a 20.5 footer, 10 year old 200hp engine mako type fishing boat.

    Wouldn`t something like this impose alot of stress on the ski? drivetrain, motor mounts? that`s got to be pretty heavy pushing around...PR...

    I was thinking the same thing.

    Seems to me that you might have to repitch the impeller to get the cavitation to go away.

    I would get serious cavitation on my RXP pulling two huge tubes and a boat load of teenagers. Had to feather the throttle to it would not cavitate until I got everything on plane.

    The Shuttle Craft factory used to be right here in my city...they've since relocated an hour away. When they first released these things there were bugs in the design but it looks like they have changed quite a few things from the first couple of versions. Those that owned them here liked the convenience but didn't care for the performance or gas mileage their pwc's got. I think with the new hull design and improved quality they might not be a bad idea. Obviously price becomes an issue and you just have to decide if the cost is worth the convenience of not buying and maintaining another boat.
