Ski boats are designed in such a way that they can safely tow skiers behind them as they speed along the water. Ski boats have a marinized automotive engine with a high horsepower. The engine is usually positioned in the center of the ski boat and is directly attached to the propeller through a direct drive. These boats are flat-bottomed and the pole is positioned in the center of the boat. Skiers find this arrangement convenient and comfortable while skiing. Ski boats have a full-V hull that helps the boat to cut through the waves sharply.
