Bidding war kicks off on $1 reserve jetboat

If you’ve ever fancied tearing up your local river at 90kph, the wind in your hair and spray in your wake, then you will want to check out this dollar reserve auction

The brand new Machina Jetboat hit the market over the weekend and took no time to whip up a bidding frenzy, careering past the $18k mark to ensure only the serious players are left in the game when the auction comes up this Saturday (14th Dec). The bespoke boat comes equipped with a 1.8 litre four-stroke Yamaha engine - worth $15k alone - backed up by an 85 litre fuel tank to keep you humming along the water for a decent stretch. 

And don’t worry, the winning bidder will not be left without a means of getting their new purchase around the country. The auction includes a brand new aluminium trailer, so no matter where you live you’ll be able to get this jet-black beauty home from its current Hawke’s Bay base.
