Jet Capsule: Futuristic Pod-Like Yachts
Taking inspiration from vehicles in sci-fi films about distant galaxies, the Jet Capsule approaches a remote Italian coast like a U.F.O in its epic short promotional film.
Designed and manufactured by the ambitious team at Lazzarini Design in Naples, Italy, the Jet Capsule project began in 2009 and has since seen a number of similar crafts hitting the water. This year, the bright orange Jet Taxi was announced. Other than make it stand out from the crowd, the highly jet Capsule’s weight/power ratio is unique in a transport/pleasure boat. As a result, the vessels can reach a top speed range from 20 to 35 knots, depending on the engine configuration.
The standard cabin inside a Jet Capule is 24ft in length, with optional space for multiple sofas, a bathroom, and even a kitchenette. Starting at around €230,000, you are really paying a premium price for the Jet Capsule’s unique design and driving experience.
