jet capsule's 2017 update offers smooth sailing, made in italy


italian company jet capsule has shared the 2017 remodel of its popular floatation device, now capable of carrying 7 to 13 people. with a range that varies from yanmar 8lv 370hp diesel up to dual engine versions 520hp and 740hp, the new jet capsule series offers stern drive or jet drive transmission, with maximum speed of 38 to 58 knots.





the re-designed V-shaped hull improves rigidity while cutting the waves, offering more turning stability at higher speeds. each jet capsule is unique and tailor made as per the client’s request, with a large variety of options available including photochromic windows, leather interiors, night vision, sub cameras, an auto docking system and carbon fiber structuring. on request, jet capsule will also offer the possibility to switch the boat to electric mode, delivering the power from two auxiliary electric engines, automatically re-charged from the main diesel power or via an optional solar panel on the rooftop.
