A while back we wrote about a modular watercraft prototype called the BomBoard. That prototype has progressed almost to the point of production. To get it over the edge, a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com has been launched with the goal of raising $100,000.
Just days into the campaign, more than half the target has already been reached, which is a good sign if you are interested in this ultra-portable PWC alternative.
When we first wrote about the BomBoard, it was slated to receive a 250cc engine, but designers have decided to double that to a 450cc engine that produces a claimed 45 horsepower. Compared to modern personal watercraft, that’s not a lot of power, but the BomBoard has a dry weight of just 165 pounds. It can also fit in the trunk of most cars.

If you live on the water, you probably don’t need a machine that goes in your trunk. But for city dwellers who don’t have a tow vehicle or a place to store a trailer, this modular craft is very intriguing.
The BomBoard will retail for $3,995, which is $1,200 less than a base model Sea-Doo Spark. However, early adopters to the Indiegogo campaign can get one for as little as $2,495.
We are eager to test out a BomBoard for ourselves. Once we do, we will let you know what it’s like on the pages of PersonalWatercraft.com.
