production has begun on italian boat company jet capsule‘s latest invention, a private 5 person and nine person taxi version. after the initial concept presentation five years ago by luca solla and  pierapaolo lazzarini, the unusual form was finally unveiled at the 2013 monaco show, where the design team sought to create a floating transportation device that was different from all others on the market. the innovation, which is 7,5 meters long and 3,5 meters wide is a fully customizable product that allows several configurations, including one with transformable sofas, a boat taxi with large seats and a luxury version with integrated comfort features. see designboom’s previous coverage of the aquatic vehicle here.

several other versions are currently under development for ambulance and emergency purposes. the current capsule model has a built-in hydro-jet system that can be equipped with one or two engines, but the team are also working on the first electrically powered design to be presented in june 2014. all the jets come with an international sail certification and can navigate and operate in any country/region, and waves of up to 4 meters.
