The foldable boat you can make with one hand!

Building a boat that travels at over 20 knots is a 60-second process, and its originator said you can make it with one hand tied behind your back - or with a beer in it!

The flat-pack foldable ‘Quickboat' takes one minute to build by a two person team and was launched to much interest at the recent Sydney International Boat Show.

Deryck Graham, the managing director of Quickboats said the boat can accommodate four adults and travel in enclosed waters with a 9.8hp engine.

When not in use, the Quickboat can simply be hung up on a wall, placed on a shelf or stored under the bed. The parts for Quickboat are assembled by clicking into place. Once constructed, the fibreglass and Kevlar boat is 3.7 metres long and 1.7 metres wide.

The entire boat packs down into two bags, with one bag measuring less than 4 metres and weighing a 36kg. The second bag weighs 18kg and measures 1.5 metres making it simple to carry the boat from the car.

Once assembled, the fibreglass and Kevlar boat is 3.7 metres long and 1.7 metres wide. It can fit four adults and can travel in enclosed waters at over 20 knots.

When not in use, the Quickboat, which is currently being sold at around $4,375, can be hung up on a wall, placed on a shelf or stored under the bed.

Quickboats insists its design is safe as is made from advanced composites such as high-end fibreglass and Kevlar and designed to function like other traditional small boats.

Several International Aid agencies have already expressed interest in using the Quickboat for flood relief and rescue operations.
