    I was recently in Wisconsin Dells and had the pleasure of being able to enjoy a fast ride on one of the Jet Boat Adventure boats. There are video of them here at Jet Boat Adventures http://www.jetboatadv.com/ . They are able to stop extremely fast and spin 360 degrees. When travelling and researching the internet I have came across many places that offer these rides. I found a company in Spain that manufactures them but they told me that nobody has ever purchased one from the United States. I tried to contact the company on who manufactures the boats but they would not disclose the information. I am curious about how these boats are made and if there is actually someone who manufactures these boats or are they just custom built? If you guys have any input that would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Quite a few jet boats are made made in NZ. The formula seem to be reasonably simple. Made of alloy, great big engine, wide but pointy hull, flat bottom. Another little innovation is to loop the cooling water through the handrails - keeps the rails nice and warm.
