Avikus partners with AquaSport Boats

Avikus and AquaSport Boats recently announced a collaboration to create the world’s first autonomously equipped recreational sport boat company.
Avikus and AquaSport Boats are embarking on a journey to revolutionize the recreational boating experience. This collaboration promises to deliver a line of center- and dual-console recreational sport boats, under the Twin Vee brand, 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.”
The Avikus and AquaSport collaboration will advance the recreational sport boating market by harnessing the power of AI, sensor fusion and machine learning to provide a new level of safety, convenience, and confidence to both new and experienced boaters. Avikus’ NeuBoat technology will bring the innovations 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, and autonomous self-docking capability.

Avikus’ NeuBoat autonomous level 2 navigation solution for recreational boats was also recognized this week for innovation at CES. This is the second consecutive year Avikus was recognized by the show in the category “Vehicle Tech and Advanced Mobility”.
“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.”

  1. This is cutting edge technology and also very interesting. Just as they built Cars for autonomously driving I guess this had to happen.
    My first impression was what? But then again I did have a test in a boat here in China in a small pond that was set to a predestined route from backing out of the dock doing a track around the pond and back into the dock slip. I was amazed.
    So I can see this coming about. Even having radars watching for rocks and shallow spaces. Once you have your lake all entered into the computer, you could practically set you kids out by themselves. haha “Johnny just don’t push that button.”
    This was an inspiring read, i recommend all to view it, the future is here.
