Chiliboats are the world’s fastest waterbike, and the most efficient human-powered watercraft ever invented. It is the only watercraft which requires basically no introduction and can be mastered instantly. You don’t even have to know how to ride a bicycle, or how to swim. It is suitable for any level of health and fitness, and removes all hurdles that are in the way to explore the water the way you always wanted to.
It is easier than any kayak, or Stand Up Paddle Board. And much faster at lower effort required from the rider. It is much more affordable than a boat or jetski, and because it stows away in a backpack, it doesn’t require a boat shed or garage either. You can even take it with you all around the world when you’re traveling.
Chiliboats don’t need any fuel, are perfectly silent and eco-friendly. The propulsion mechanism is ergonomic and efficient, preventing exhaustion and lactic acid build-up, making Chiliboats suitable for any level of health and fitness.
The Easiest Way To Get Into A Rewarding New Hobby
Chiliboats are the easiest way to get into a fun new hobby. There is no learning curve and riders immediately find their child-like sense of curiosity and exploration. The enjoyment is infectious, resulting in waves and cheers wherever you go. There is no balancing required whatsoever, and virtually no risk of falling in.
You can even stay completely dry, and don’t need to know how to swim. Without the resistance and effort required in other watersports, enjoy a fun and accessible way of exploring the water without lactic acid build-up, suitable for every level of health and fitness.
Shipped directly to your door and put together in 5 minutes, you’re up and running straight away, wherever you are, wherever there’s water.
The Fastest Waterbike On The Market
Chiliboats are the fastest waterbike on the market, reaching top speeds of up to 16.5km/h (8.5 knots). The highly efficient propulsion mechanism and the lack of resistance on the water surface makes them effortless to ride. An ergonomic, non-weight-bearing riding position makes them suitable for every level of health and fitness (even if you have lower back pain or achy joints preventing you from doing other exercise).
The dual-pontoon configuration keeps the waterbike completely stable in every imaginable condition. There is no balancing required to stay upright. And you don’t even need to know how to ride a bike, or how to swim.
Rekindle Childlike Joy And Exploration
We are all naturally curious, want to explore, and have an awesome time doing it. Life can get in the way over the years, and our responsibilities can pile up. A Chiliboat is your vehicle to rekindle childlike joy, to experience that youthful, boundless energy. Things aren’t meant to be hard and boring all the time. We aren’t meant to play a role and follow somebody else’s rules every day.
Step on, and instantly step into an adventure. Where you decide where to go, opening up the world of your creativity. Remember what life is about, and what makes it worth living. It is the closest thing to being a kid again, riding down to the milk bar and spending time with your mates. It is so easy, it takes everyone playfully beyond any limits of health, fitness and courage which may apply in other areas of life. Tap into those dreams again, of having fun, being totally relaxed, and enjoying yourself as you’re meant to.
Options To Suit Your Style
Choose your own adventure, and your own style to explore uncharted territory. The Upright model has an elevated seating position most similar to a road bike. The Recumbent features a reclined seat, making it suitable for full-day trips. It is also easiest on your lower back, and even more stable due to the overall lower centre of gravity. Both models reach the same fast top speed with the same effort, and offer enough rider height to enjoy all of the sealife and your surroundings.
The Right Choice – Standard Or Large Pontoons
All Chiliboats models are exceptionally stable due to their dual-pontoon configuration. They are the watersports equivalent of a Jeep/4WD, or large SUV giving the same sense of security due to their superior seaworthiness. The standard pontoons support riders and equipment of up to 120kg capacity, the large ones up to 170kg. Even if you are not planning on using up every last bit of those reserves, we recommend the large pontoons for new riders as they offer a perfectly smooth experience under every imaginable condition.
NOT For Everyone
A Chiliboat isn’t the right choice for people who need a new hobby to be very complicated, specific or difficult to learn in order to get into it. In fact, if you need things in your free time to be hard and exhausting to experience a feeling of accomplishment, this may not be for you.
Also, people who require their leisure time to be exactly the same every day, every time, a Chiliboat will make it very challenging for one trip to be like the last one.
If what revs your engine is tinkering with motors, technology, and spending time on maintenance instead of going out, you will not get your fix here. Chiliboats only need a freshwater rinse-off after use. Apart from that, there is virtually no ongoing maintenance required.
Lastly, if you would only consider picking up a hobby that everybody else is already doing, you’re better off waiting a couple of years for waterbikes to completely take over.
Choose Your Own Adventures
Chiliboats are for you if you appreciate being one with nature, learning something fun and new without effort. It suits literally every level of health and fitness, from the bottom all the way to the top. Some of the best adventures are experienced with the ones we love. The detachable deck has enough room and carrying capacity for kids, furry friends, camping equipment, and everything else you might need for a romantic picnic or party on a secluded beach.
Can Be Packed Up And Assembled Effortlessly
Because it stows away in a backpack, you don’t need a boat shed, a garage, or landing spot
Being put together and ready in 5 minutes, you get to have more time for yourself and spend it going on adventures
The lack of engine and no requirements for fuel keeps the cost of operation to a minimum in every economy and allows operation in areas where motorised vessels are prohibited
Because there is no learning curve, you have fun straight away instead of struggling for months in which you may not yet enjoy yourself
There are virtually no restrictions applying to waterbikes: you can go anywhere you like wherever there’s water – you can even take your Chiliboat on a plane around the world with you
Real People With Really Good Experiences
Being an ex- racing cyclist, my approach to the Chiliboat experience was performance based. Mods include straight bars, clip in peddles and bike shoes for endurance rides. Truly awesome for fun and fitness!
Pedalling a Chiliboat feels to me like riding a road bike in a low gear. Resistance is surprisingly low! So you don’t have to be a Tour de France winner to spin that prop quickly.
If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water – Loren Eiseley
Absolutely amazing experience! Awesome way to see the all the sea life and it is so relaxing. I would highly recommended going out for a pedal on these waterbikes.

How Do Chiliboats Measure Up
Have a look how Chiliboats compare to other human-powered and motorised vessels:
Jetski – fast, loud, expensive, requires lots of maintenance, requires trailer for transport and garage for storage
SUP – difficult to balance on, not suitable for every level of health and fitness, doesn’t fit on every car or in every garage
Kayak – can get a cold, wet butt, takes up storage space, roughens up or injures your hands when going fast
Pedalboat – slow, bulky, boring, a relic of the past that never took off
Motor boat – big, expensive, difficult to maintain, loud, ongoing fees and fuel cost
Sailboat – big, expensive, lots of skill required, difficult to maintain, ongoing fee
Pirate ship – most impressive, largest, has 6 cannons on each side, most costly to maintain, crew are often unruly

A Few Words From The Founder…
“Ever since I was a young boy, I was filled with a curiosity that compelled me to explore the world. The most amazing things happen when we search beyond where we are, and challenge ourselves to expand who we are as a person. It has been my lifelong quest to improve people’s lives through fun, adventure, health and wellness while being outdoors in nature. The Chiliboats are the latest evolution of that journey.”
“My dream has been to create a new, distinctive water sport in Australia and the Pacific region that gives everyone, greenhorns and old salts alike, the ability to experience the freedom and thrill of being out on the water in a way that is uniquely their own. This dream has now become a reality, and I can’t wait for you to embark on your own adventures. May your journey be filled with awe, curiosity and excitement!”
