Enjoy a smooth, comfortable, sporty ride over the water without wasting gas aboard the Quadrofoil. This dual-seat watercraft uses C-foil technology to lift the vessel above the water, reducing water resistance, increasing efficiency, and creating a feeling of flying. It's powered by an electric motor so it's nearly silent, creates zero emissions, and yet still offers a range of up to 100km per charge and a cruising speed of up to 20 knots. It boasts a patented, integrated steering system, a steering wheel with an integrated touch screen that keeps you informed about battery life, range, speed, and power consumption, and since its lightweight composite hull weighs only 220 pounds, it's easy to get in and out of the water.
When things on the super yacht start to get boring and the deep sea beckons, the Uboat Worx HP Sport Sub 2 is the perfect vessel. It boasts a new acrylic-steel pressure hull design, brushless electric thrusters that can reach speeds of 3 knots on the surface or 2 knots when submerged, and even a dual-joystick, gamepad-style controller. Launch from the yacht or directly from a trailer and explore what lies beneath the surface with a passenger for up to six hours at a time.
Billed as the most advanced, whitewater capable packraft ever produced, the Alpackalypse Raft was six years in the making — and it was worth the wait. Thanks to smaller tubes than standard packrafts, it offers more internal room for the paddler, is quicker to accelerate and easier to maneuver — more like a kayak than a raft. Features include a super tough 400-denier Vectran fabric build, a heavy-duty seat, knee cups, a foot brace, a back band, inflatable hip pads, and a cargo system that lets you store gear in your tubes, keeping the bow clear of gear.
Manufacturing in Detroit has a rich history that predates Henry Ford's assembly line, and it's this heritage that lives on at Shinola. We decided we needed a closer look at the company's watch-making process, so we drove up to the Motor City to visit the Shinola watch factory. Housed on the fifth floor of the Argonaut Building — formerly known as the GM Research Lab — Shinola is bringing hand-powered watch making back to America one timepiece at a time. The workers hand-build each timepiece, meticulously seating and fitting together as many as 100 parts per watch — including the Detroit-built movement made with Swiss parts — until they meet the final, one-person quality test, creating lasting products that rival their European counterparts in quality but exhibit a strength that's unique to the place in which they're built. America. Detroit.
