Risks and challenges

We’ve spent the last 8 years, deep within the top secret testing bunker at our Bixby, Oklahoma manufacturing facility, developing the patent approved GoBoat. We are 99% finished with the engineering and only need to complete the molds to go into production with this innovative, Made in the USA product. Our seasoned manufacturing staff and industry leading product development team are waiting on you, to make a splash and release the GoBoat out into the wild, wherever the water is.
