Opening up new horizons through better design
70% of the Earth is covered with water but only about 1% of the world’s water is readily available for human use. Nearly 97% is salty or otherwise undrinkable. Another 2% is locked in the ice caps and glaciers. That leaves just 1% for all humanity’s needs. For navigational purposes a whole lot more available to use than roads “if we so choose


Water-Taxi Project: World Water Taxis was created  in 2007 to fill a void in the antiquated, stodgy design and thought of water transportation. The solution is based on creating a smaller, more efficient, improved ergonomics, modular design, modular manufactured, less draft, more navigable, more visible water transportation solutions. Objective:  Levering advanced & recycled composites, innovative new designs with eco-friendly hybrid propulsion, to achieve advance performance and efficiency. Result: Possibly the most extensive range of styles and types of water taxis available anywhere and ready to build now, delivered ANYWHERE in the world. we not only just sell boats we provide complete water taxi solutions
The water taxi industry has existed for thousands of years. Most cultures built their small villages near great bodies of water. The original water taxis were functions of the society to help transport their people and goods to neighbouring villages. (And in some countries today are the same )  In modern times, there are many forms of water taxi services. Most are similar to a taxi cab in the city. They ferry people over the water between points and are available to the public for tourism and private parties.  A good example of a water taxi service around the world are Sydney harbour in Australia, Boston in the United States, New York, Venice and the Maldives islands, plus where there is a need for people need to commute across water to the mainland each day for work and shopping. The boats used for water taxi services today are mainly powerboats with inboard motors. Most of these vessels are covered or enclosed and provide heat or air conditioning where necessary. Some provide W.C’s, galleys, open-air decks and some cocktail services. Smaller boats with outboard motors are mainly used for the tourist trade. Most major cities of the world that are on a large body of water provide some form of water taxi service for its residences and tourists. For commuters, the water taxi is a great alternative form of transportation that is comfortable, safe and relaxing. In Venice, Italy, gondolas have been used to transport people for hundreds of years. Since civilization has occupied the region of the Nile River in Egypt, China has several water towns that have existed since ancient times and rely on water taxi services. What is new is our realisation that new water taxis have to be, Economical Ecological, Modern and Efficient
