About ASAP Watercraft
Ross Kemp, CEO of Asap water crafts saw an opportunity for a quick launch rescue water craft – that could be launched anywhere, by one person, to power through water to reach casualties quicker.
Short on space Ross set about making the first prototype in a tent in his garden – much to the annoyance of his neighbor Margaret (she thought he was building a spaceship).
During development he realized being blasted through the water was a lot of fun – the feeling of water rushing over your body also quite addictive! So they also designed Wave Jam leisure models – excellent for exploring caves, islands, catching waves and more.
After a year of development and water testing, they set up production in the UK where their Wave Jam and Rescue water crafts are hand built, and shipped around the world!
