ATEED helped Explorer Inflatable Craft transform car engines into jet engines.

Can you take the engine from a Toyota K series Vitz and convert it into a powerful jetboat engine?

You can if you’re Explorer Inflatable Craft, according to Director Mark Goodhew. His innovative Kumeu-based company makes stylish, jetboat ‘tenders’ – utility boats for the niche global superyacht  market. ATEED facilitated research and development funding through Callaghan Innovation and introduced Explorer Inflatable Craft to specialist engineering firms in Auckland so it could convert Toyota car engines into highly reliable water jet marine engines. While Mark was in Sydney, commissioning craft sold by Explorer’s  Australian distributer following the 2014 Sydney International Boat Show, we spoke to his business partner Matt Taylor about how ATEED helped power up their business.
