Extremely compact and easy to use the M1 Personal Transporter is a lightweight and electric-powered vehicle that could become the ideal addition to a super yacht’s toy inventory.
It provides a quick, fun and effortless mode of transportation around the marina and beyond.
The handle section can be removed, ensuring it can be lifted on board and stored easily on a variety of vessels ranging from smaller boats to sailing yachts and luxury motor yachts.
Once underway, the two-wheeled transporter should be safe from damage due to its waterproof construction, whether it is housed in a deck locker, motor yacht tender garage or other storage space.
Its small size and with a weight of just 18.5kg, means several units can be stored aboard for use by the whole family, or for the owner, and crew.
Virtually silent and free from any emissions, it provides an efficient and eco-friendly way to travel quickly around large marinas and harbours, saving time and effort once the boat has been safely secured alongside.
Once lifted ashore, they are ready for use – whether it is to go and explore, head to the beach or visit the shops.
The 1300Watt motor can be charged in 2 to 4 hours through the boat’s shore power system or any standard electrical socket, giving a range of around 20km on a full charge and top speeds of around 15km/h.
“These really are a portable mode of transport and take up very little space when not in use. For the skipper and crew of a super yacht, they are a very economical and time efficient form of transport.
The design of the machine has taken the revolutionary gyroscopic transporter onto the next level and beyond. They are incredibly simple to use and it only takes a few minutes to learn how to control. Users move the body in the direction you want to head and the gyroscopic computer will stay upright and turn that way.”
It can carry a load of 35-100kgs and has a height adjustable control system due to the telescopic handle to account for all ages and sizes.
It is switched on and off via a remote control key fob, which prevents unauthorised use and can also be used to set-up parameters such as a top speed to give the holder control of security and safety.
The transporter uses the latest high-efficiency Lithium Ion battery technology which gives the power supply a 3 to 5 year life before any replacement of batteries is required.
Available in a selection of colours, it is one of the most economic electric vehicles available and is reasonably priced to bring this form of transport within easy reach of many more people.
