A stock boat called Water Kertaxi. Built with 137 of the finest parts, its root part is mk2LanderCabin.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 0.25.0.

Room for CO & Navigator on the bridge, plus up to 6 passengers. Rear facing seats to double for sport fishing (bring your own poles). Use the outward-mounted life preservers for life-threatening scenarios, the inner life preservers may be filled with explosive rocket fuel.

Piloting: Keep it below 30 m/s on the runway, cut engines after leaving the runway. Activate second stage to discard the trailer (wheels) once in the water. If you don’t hit the water very gently (any faster than 8 m/s), you’ll lose the rudders and underwater engines, but a backup engine (final stage) and reaction wheels will keep it maneuverable in that scenario. Can tolerate full-throttle once its fully in the water.

If you use Roll to turn in the water rather than Yaw, the rudders will respond properly (roll CW to turn left, CCW to turn right).
