The Gran turismo – Foil BY jet Capsule


Italian-based water mobility company Jet Capsule releases its latest water jet model, titled ‘Gran turismo – Foil’ (GT-F). Designed by Pierpaolo Lazzarini of Lazzarini Design Studio, the watercraft features a cutting-edge hydro propulsion system and capsule shaped shell with photochromic windows that are made of 70% carbon using vacuum-infusion molding.


The flying spaceship measures at 10 meters (32.8 ft) and can be equipped with twin hydrostatic transmissions, capable of a power from 880hp to 1200hp, diesel, petrol or in a full electric configuration. Moreover, with a cruising speed of 35 Knots, the new GT-F can reach an estimated top speed of 60 Knots.

Pierpaolo Lazzarini’s latest ‘flying spaceship’


Pierpaolo Lazzarini founded Lazzarini Design Studio in 2012, when it presented its first concept of innovative water transportation approaches. Since then, the Italian company has studied hydrodynamic solutions that are constantly improved with each model. The recently-unveiled Jet Capsule GT-F can now be built on request, with a timeline of one year for the construction.


The body of the watercraft is made from a combination of carbon fiber and fiberglass. Meanwhile, it comes with a customizable interior, where clients can configure the boat from 10 passengers for leisure use to 20 passengers for commercial use. Specifications of the ‘Gran turismo – Foil’ include an overall length of 9.99 m (32.78 ft); maximum width of 3.44 m (11.28 ft); total surface of 22 sqm; and standard fuel capacity of 550 liters.
