Tourism in Pakistan is a thriving industry, with many foreign and local tourists visiting the scenic locations in our country every year. The industry is so well-groomed in Pakistan that there is a separate category called adventure tourism that focuses on entertaining thrill-seekers. The adventure tourists indulge in a range of activities like hiking, climbing, cycling, skiing, bloating, paragliding, canoeing, and scouring the waters of Pakistan’s famous lakes on a motorboat.
For the ones who take extra pleasure in roaming the waters of a lake on a speedboat, there is some great news for you. The world’s fastest boat has arrived in Pakistan, and it has already piqued the interest of foreign investors. Boat tours will never be the same with the advent of this speedboat.
Until now, well-developed countries with established tourism industries like Thailand, the USA, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Korea, and Japan had speedboats. Now that Pakistan has one of these modern boats, it will be a watershed moment for the tourism industry.
The company that invested in this project goes by the name of Greenland Corporation and it was developed by the overseas Pakistanis.
The speedboat follows a revolutionary design with a lightweight but strong structure. It can practically shoot past shallow waters at a fast speed. Equipped with two 320/320 horsepower jet engines, the speedboat boasts a speed of over 640 horsepower in total. Its parts were made by some of the best international companies. The jet engine was crafted by the famous American company that goes by the name Mercury. The structure of the boat was made in Turkey while the reflectors were made in Finland.
The director of Greenland Corporation, Zulficar Momin, said Hunza, the scenic location of Pakistan, has been chosen for the test drive of the boat. The boat will be operational from the month of May. Tourists from all over Pakistan will be able to enjoy the ride in this unique speedboat which will run between Shashkat and Hussaini Bridge in Upper Hunza.
