perfect for any type of weather, the ‘jet capsules’ are available with single or dual engine configuration, as well as an electric auxiliar engine for protected areas such as lakes or natural reserves. with an average cruising speed of 25 knots to 38 knots, the boost is guaranteed. stern drives are also available and the choice is up to the clients depending on their control/sailing preferences. as for fuel, the average consumption at full load is approximately 25/30lt per hour. each component of ‘jet capsule’ comes with an international warranty coverage and a 24hour/365day assistance is offered in each region. no matter if the use is public or private, this water vehicle can adapt to any purpose.

  • hmmm…it’s a boat, but it don’t look like a boat…
    Reminds me of sunfish, devoid of all fish-logic and shape. Still exists, though.
    Something like a Multipla for the sea, functional and practical, but ugly as hell 🙂
