Innovative Idea and Creativity

  • This project is designed and assembled by the team of students from grade 6. They have researched and made a working model. The project is till on research and market survey  to further the actual prototype to be created and tested.
  • A water jet boat is a type of boat that uses a jet of water for propulsion. Instead of traditional propellers, these boats draw water from beneath the hull into a pump, which then expels it at high speed through a nozzle at the stern. This creates a jet of water that propels the boat forward.
  • It presents a solution to a reduce  use of fossil fuel problem and protect environment from climate change.
  • The major problem that we are trying to solve is to save energy, use alternate energy and prevent carbon emission and reduce the pollution to fight the climatic change. This makes the planet a safer place to all living organisms.

How Water Jet Boat Works


Water is drawn into the boat through an intake grate on the underside of the hull.


Inside the boat, the water passes through an impeller (a type of pump) which increases the water’s pressure and velocity.


The high-pressure water is then directed through a nozzle at the stern of the boat. The direction and speed of the boat can be controlled by changing the angle and size of the nozzle.


As the water is expelled from the nozzle, it creates thrust, propelling the boat forward.

Our Project meets Sustainable developmental goals SDG 7,9,12and 13.

  • Ensuring universal access to affordable electricity by 2030 means investing in clean energy sources such as solar, wind and thermal. Adopting cost-effective standards for a wider range of technologies could also reduce the global electricity consumption by buildings and industry by 14 percent.
  • SDG 7 Affordable and clean energy.

Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

  • SDG 9 Industry, innovation and infrastructure.

Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation

  • SDG12 Responsible consumption and production.

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

  • SDG 13 Climate action
  • Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

Advantages of Water Jet Boats


No exposed propellers mean safer operation around people and marine life.


High efficiency at high speeds and in shallow waters.


Excellent handling, especially at low speeds, making them ideal for tight and complex waterways.

Low Draft

Can operate in very shallow waters, providing access to areas other boats can’t reach

Potential of Water Jet Boats

Innovation in Marine Transportation

Speed and Efficiency: Water jet propulsion allows boats to reach higher speeds and offers better fuel efficiency at high speeds compared to traditional propellers. This potential is particularly valuable in commercial ferry services, reducing travel time and operational costs.

Advanced Maneuverability: The precise control over water flow enables superior handling and agility, making them ideal for rescue operations, military applications, and recreational sports.

Environmental Impact

Shallow Water Operation: Their ability to operate in shallow waters with minimal environmental disruption makes them suitable for ecotourism and wildlife exploration without damaging sensitive habitats.

Reduced Marine Life Harm: Without exposed propellers, water jet boats significantly reduce the risk of harming marine life, making them a more eco-friendly option for marine transport.

Safety Enhancements

Swimmer and Diver Safety: The absence of exposed propellers enhances safety for swimmers and divers, making water jet boats a preferred choice for recreational areas and rescue operations.

Reduced Debris Damage: The enclosed propulsion system minimizes the risk of damage from underwater debris, leading to fewer accidents and lower maintenance costs.

Commercial and Recreational Expansion

Tourism and Leisure: The recreational boating industry benefits from the versatility and performance of water jet boats, attracting enthusiasts for water sports, fishing, and leisure cruises.

Commercial Use: Their reliability and efficiency make them suitable for commercial applications such as cargo transport, passenger ferries, and offshore support vessels.

Impact of Water Jet Boats

Sustainable Development: As the demand for environmentally-friendly transportation grows, water jet boats are poised to play a crucial role in sustainable marine transportation. Innovations in hybrid and electric water jet propulsion can further enhance their environmental benefits.

Expanding Applications: The versatility of water jet boats means they can be adapted for a wide range of applications, from luxury yachts to high-speed ferries, expanding their market presence and impact.

Regulatory Support: Supportive regulations and incentives for adopting 

  • Cleaner marine technologies can accelerate the adoption of water jet boats, 
  • Contributing to global efforts to reduce marine pollution and promote sustainable practices. Water jet boats represent a significant advancement in marine technology with the potential to revolutionize various aspects of maritime operations, offering economic, environmental, and safety benefits.
