The CSF DEVELOPMENT group, specialized since 1987 in the creation of nautical innovation concepts, in collaboration with Demix Group, is developing the BARTING and Concept Barting projects. 

Since 2003, in collaboration with their partner the Aqualèo Company they have participated as exhibitors in several fairs, winning in 2017 the first prize of the electric nautical machinery at the Paris boat show. During this period they selected different manufacturers from various sectors in order to improve the technical performance of propulsion and electric motors, in order to develop and master the production of pneumatic casings. 

They worked with energy developers to make specific interchangeable batteries for Bartings, as well as selecting architects to work with them on nautical development: steering position, steering technique, designation of protective tubes and dashboard, shape and suspension of seats. In 2018, they signed a partnership contract for the joint development of a new generation propulsion mode exclusively adapted to Bartings. 

The ambition: Bartings, because of its innovative properties and performance, is set to integrate into the jet-ski market and replace it in the long term.


The Barting is an innovative electric nautical machine that: 

  • Can accommodate one or two passengers
  • Meets all safety requirements
  • Is equipped with an electric motor
  • Is watertight 
  • Fast, interactive, silent, ecological and economical

The Barting is equipped with an intelligent cell that includes a positioning unit and a shock alarm, a radio all on one impenetrable video screen. The Barting electric batteries are interchangeable in the form of a rack clip, rechargeable ashore or on the boat. 

Since October 2018 in collaboration with AIRBUS INDUSTRIE Group and the established research and development unit, they are now developing the first prototype equipped with this new technology. This new technology, which will be able to permanenetly equip Barting machines, uses the foil system with permanent stabilisation calculation. It suggests the following performances and a specific machine profile: 

  • Propeller propulsion
  • Water penetration using the foil system with permanent stabilisation calculation
  • A speed of up to 80 km/h
  • An autonomy of 4 to 5 hours with even a small engine (4.5/6 hp) 
  • A weight of less than 90 kg 

Which makes it the best performing machine in the world in its category. 


The Barting Concept is a commercial centre, focused on the practice of nautical leisure for the whole family, as close as possible to the building areas and whose central activity is the practice of “Nautical Karting”. A concept operating mainly indoors, it can also be used in an outdoor version. This type of installation depends on the specific geographical, climatic and local conditions required for the concept, which is made up of various commercial, sporting and leisure activities, all structured around one main activity: BARTING “ELECTRIC WATER INTERACTIVE SPEED KART”.
