This is the Wildest Boat Racing You’ve Ever Seen

Australia just might be home to the craziest boat race you’ve ever seen.  Teams of two hop in these small boats called Dinghys and race around the Murray River in South Australia.  The race is called the Riverland Dinghy Derby, and it started back in 2012.  Who’s trying to squad up and race in this?

Here are some highlights from last year:

Gibbs Sports Makes the Dopest Amphibious Rides

Seriously, Gibbs Sports produces the dopest vehicles out there.  They specialize in amphibious rides that can move on both land and water.  Right now they are just concepts, but the company does have a vehicle that is available for purchase called the Quadski (check it out here).

You got the Biski (which can be seen in the video above) that operates as a motorcycle and a jet ski.

There’s also the Triski, which is a 3-wheeled motorcycle that also can act as a jet ski:

And then there’s the Terraquad, a 4-wheeled utility vehicle that is also a compact boat:

The Dopest Yacht on the sea is the Admiral Yachts X Force 145

Okay, so it’s not technically on the sea yet.  These are all renderings of a yacht designed by Admiral – “the Italian sea group.”

The Admiral X Force 145 is currently just a concept, but by looking at the pictures, it’s easy to say it may be the craziest yacht out there.  You have to inquire about the pricing, but I’d imagine you probably have to be a part of the 3-comma club to afford this bad boy.
