referencing images of a space ship, the futuristic looking jet capsule by italian designer pierpaolo lazzarini was developed in collaboration with luca solla from S3, ship supply side. produced in naples, italy the egg-shaped boat features a powerboat hull constructed entirely from fiberglass and also stainless steel handrails. the fun water craft measures 7.5 meters and is powered by a 325-hp yanmar diesel with a hamilton waterjet – allowing propulsion speeds of up to 25 knots. the capsule accommodates enough room to seat four people on each side, with alternate arrangements available. offering a fully customizable interior, there are a wide range of soft finishes and exterior gelcoat colors.
the idea was based on, ‘having a boat small enough to be easily maneuvered, yet spacious enough to take a handful of friends out for drinks, over to a port for an evening’s entertainment’ says the designer.

the design is complete with a rooftop lounge bed for sunbathing and rear platform to spring off into the water. there’s also colorful underwater and interior lighting, making the jet capsule stand out even further from neighboring boats in the harbor at night.
