Recreational boating experience set to be revolutionised

Avikus and AquaSport Boats have agreed a collaboration to create the world’s first autonomously equipped recreational sport boat company.

Avikus, creator of artificial intelligence systems, ADAS and autonomous boat technology, and boatbuilder AquaSport Boats, will use their combined knowledge with the aim of revolutionising the recreational boating experience.

The collaboration will use the power of AI, sensor fusion, and machine learning to provide what the two companies say will bring a new level of safety, convenience, and confidence to both new and experienced boaters.

Avikus’ NeuBoat technology will bring innovations previously seen in the automotive sector to the recreational marine market, such as 360-degree situational awareness, 3D cluster views, advanced route planning, ‘smart’ autopilot navigation that can identify objects and avoid potential collisions, together with autonomous self-docking capability.

The collaboration promises to deliver a line of centre and dual console recreational sport boats under the Twin Vee brand, each craft designed, developed, and manufactured to provide a boating experience that incorporates advanced navigation assist and autonomous functionality.


The first models will make their debut this summer, with additional models being introduced in late 2024 under the Twin Vee, Forza and AquaSport brands.

“This partnership is a testament to our shared commitment to innovation, technology, and the pursuit of excellence in the recreational boating industry,” said Lim Dohyeong, CEO of Avikus. “Together with AquaSport Boats, we are not just introducing a new product; we are unleashing a new era of AI assisted navigation on the open water.”

And he explained that in a market that is constantly looking for ways to differentiate through innovation to capture the hearts and minds of the customer, the efforts of Avikus and AquaSport Boats will serve as an example of what is possible for builders wishing to collaborate with Avikus to bring the exhilaration of AI-powered autonomous boating solutions to their owners.

“As pioneers in monohull design, AquaSport Boats is thrilled to partner with Avikus to bring autonomous technology to the heart of recreational boating,” said Joseph Visconti, president, AquaSport Boats. “This collaboration is not just about creating boats; it’s about creating unforgettable experiences for our customers.”
