PERSONAL WATERCRAFT

OPERATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF PWC

The jet pump propels the PWC by drawing water in through the bottom of the vessel using an internal propeller, propellera rotating mechanism that propels a vessel through the water., called an impellera rotor inside a tube or conduit to increase the pressure and flow of a fluid.), and then accelerating the water through a nozzle at the back of the vessel.

Unlike regular boats where sitting or standing in the boat is the rule, PWCs are designed to be sat, knelt or stood on; it’s one of the reasons these vessels are so fun to operate. You’ll find PWCs that can accommodate one, two, three and even four people.
