- The hull design of the vehicle offers better stability and handling on off-roads and even while the vehicle is under water.

- The engine produces 175 horsepower and 103 lb feet of torque and the vehicle can reach the top speed of 50 mph on land and 40 mph in the water. The vehicle also has six speed automated manual transmission that allows the rider to handle the vehicle in a better way.

- The performance under water is equally good and Gibbs introduces better water jet propulsion technology which is lighter and compact than traditional marine water jets.

It can accommodate only one person which is the rider itself, and there is no enough space underneath to store helmet and life jacket.
