Business: Asap Water Crafts
Asap Water Crafts has developed a small, electric, one-person watercraft for rescue use and the leisure market.
Ross Kemp of Asap Water Crafts
Rescuing and towing people in the water is extremely difficult, and
there has been little innovation in water rescue equipment. Most
equipment is for leisure and adapted for rescue purpose – for example a
jet ski needs its water outlet modified and a paddleboard is simply
fitted with extra handles. Fuel-hungry, high-revving jet skis are also
expensive to buy and run and take two lifeguards to launch. The business
has designed a solar charged, quick launch craft, specifically for
rescue – providing a cheaper and more purpose-built alternative.
