The Gibbs Quadski XL is unlike anything else in the power sports world. This ATV /  PWC hybrid has the ability to not just be ridden as a four-wheeler but can transform into a jet ski as well.

Since its introduction into the power sports industry, the Gibbs Quadski has caught a lot of people’s attention. Then, just as people were starting to get used to it, the Gibbs Quadski XL was released. The XL is much like the classic Quadski, except it’s even bigger, and has an astounding price tag to show for it.

Gibbs Quadski XL Review

The XL borrows has all the same features as the classic, but it comes with an even larger seating capacity. Surprisingly, this didn’t have too much of an effect on things like top speed or the Gibbs Quadski XL price. Despite the change, everything is relatively the same.

Gibbs Quadski XL Top Speed and Engine

A powerful and fuel efficient BMW Motorrad K1300 engine is the driving force behind the Quadski. With this 140hp engine, the Quadski XL can reach a top speed of 45mph on both land and water. What makes this so impressive is that it shares the same top speed with the classic Quadski despite weighing significantly more.

Although 45mph isn’t the fastest top speed in either the atv or pwc worlds, it’s pretty acceptable to say the least. Given the size and weight of this amphibious vehicle, it’s not nearly as bad as it could be.

Gibbs Quadski XL Features

The revolutionary retractable suspension on the Quadski is what really allows it to stand out. It provides a nearly seamless transition from atv to pwc within just 5 seconds. Once the retractable wheels are folded up, the Quadski can function exactly as a pwc would.

On the bottom is an easily distinguishable pwc hull. This lightweight composite hull allows for proper handling while on the water. When it’s being ridden as an atv, the hull provides a low center of gravity giving it a more nimble feel.

Both the original and the XL feature a patented water jet drive that is lighter and more compact than those found on other pwc. This helps it reach its top speed in a matter of seconds, and give it incredible maneuverability.

Currently, there are 4 standard color options available, along with custom color options like camo.

After hearing about the XL, most people are quick to ask how much it costs. After all, something that cool can’t be cheap, right? Unfortunately, that’s a correct assumption to make.


The factors that determine how much Quadski costs aren’t easy to get around. After all, it’s an amphibious vehicle. Creating an ATV / PWC hybrid isn’t an easy process, so it’s natural for the price to reflect that. This coupled with what is likely very high production costs makes an affordable price hard to hit. If there were a way to make them cheaper, Gibbs would probably do it. For all the public knows, that may be something they’re already working on.

Difference between Gibbs Quadski and Gibbs Quadski XL

For the most part, the Quadski and Quadski XL are the same. The major difference is the larger seating capacity on the XL. The standard Quadski has a seating capacity of 1 person, while the XL can seat 2.

All of the other real differences are regarding various measurements. Because of the larger seating capacity, the XL has larger dimensions. Aside from being nearly a foot longer, the XL also weighs approximately 100 lbs more. It also has less ground clearance, decreasing from 8.9 inches (22.6 cm) to 8.6 inches (21.8 cm).

Other than the larger seating capacity and dimensions, both models have the same features. The Gibbs Quadski XL price, features, and top speed are all the same as the original model.

    I just wanted to comment on my experience. I was a bit skeptical about purchasing a Quadski online and Thousand of miles away from home, but when I first started speaking with Jeff Harris, I felt like he was standing right next to me. He was very professional, and answered every question that I had asked. I probably called him more than I should have, but he said to call if I had any question and even took my call after store hours. If I ever decide to sell and buy again, Jeff will enter my mind first. I would probably be a repeat customer that’s how much of a great experience I had. ATV Amphibious, Thanks Again.

    Much love

    When my quadski was delivered, I was very nervous about not trying it on the lake first. Because of that I feel I probably acted like an ass and not very positive. I hope you will accept my apology for that.. You were right. I got a very nice Quadski Amphibian at a very nice price. Can’t ask for more then that. Thank you all, for making this a good experience. I will do my best to send 2 wheeling friends your way!!

    Mark demonstrated great customer service during the transaction. He was extremely helpful, courteous, and answered all my questions. He was always calm and did not pressure me in any way. I enjoyed dealing with him in the purchase of the Jed Ski.
