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 Barting

To date, we have designed and developed an innovative electric jet ski model, with limited competition on the market, with remarkable performance and with speed and range under study and improvement. We produced in France, near the city of Laval, around 300 examples of electric watercraft, under the name Gliss-Speed and Nautikart, most of which we sold to professional nautical parks in various countries. 

Our next goal is to finalize a Barting model that will present exceptional qualities and performance for its speed, autonomy, safety, energy, intelligence, ecology and ergonomics.


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: 

  • Electric motorized propeller propulsion 
  • Penetration into the water by a foil system with permanent stabilization calculation. 
  • A speed that can reach 60/80 km / h (depending on the weight moved) 
  • A range of 3 to 5 hours equipped with an even minimum motorization (4.5 / 6 HP). 
  • A machine weight of less than 100Kg and a maximum height of 80 cm. 


Concept Barting is a leisure centre, focused on nautical leisure activities for the whole family, as close as possible to built-up areas and whose central activity is the practice of “nautical karting”. An operating concept designed mainly to be indoors, it can also be used in an outdoor version, this type of installations depends on the specific geographical, climatic and local conditions necessary for Concept, made up of various commercial, sporting and recreational activities, all articulated around a main activity: BARTING “ELECTRIC WATER INTERACTIVE SPEED KART”.
