italian company jet capsule releases their new ‘mini jet’, a tiny 5000 mm x 2700 mm yacht with a capability of five people. while berthed, the boat can be transformed by removing the rigid carbon fiber roof letting passengers enjoy a more extremal cruising. 

 

small in size but heavy in power, jet capsule‘s device will be available in four variants: 315 hp petrol, 260 hp diesel, 160 hp electric or a hybrid system capable of coupling the petrol to an auxiliary 80 hp power unit. respectively, the maximum speed will be of 45 kn, 35 kn, and 25 kn.

 

jet capsule plans to start production after ten orders will be placed, with a retail price for the first edition set of $ 69,000.

  • Fatal flaw #1 – operator sits alone with no contact with others while in operation. Makes him become just a taxi driver

    Fatal flaw #2 – impossible to arrive at dock and tie up with roof attached, without dockside help.

    Fatal flaw #3 – hardtop completely unnecessary unless in inclement weather.. plus it will get pretty hot in there very fast. How can one person remove and replace the top? By standing in the water?
    And who wants to be on the water inside a dome anyway?

    Fatal flaw #4- too small to enjoy. Not enough deckspace.
