When it comes to innovation and design, leave it to the Italians to turn the yachting industry on its head.
Looking more like a UFO than a boat, Italian design studio Lazzarini launched its first “mini yacht” during the 2013 Monaco yacht charter show.
The Lazzarini Jet Capsule is a compact water craft measuring just 7.5 meters (24.6 feet) in length and 3.5 meters (11.5 feet) wide – about the same dimensions of a megayacht tender.
The company feels the futuristic looking vessel can be customized to suit multiple uses – including a water taxi, scuba diving vessel, or elite yacht tender.The Lazzarini Jet Capsule is made with a fiberglass hull, and powered by a hydro-jet system, offering from 315 to 740 hp. The capsule offers a deck protected from the elements, and seating for eight passengers.
Amenities include automatic closing doors, a rooftop sunbed, rear diving platform, and a convertible bedroom with head. The interior can even be customized to include a kitchen.
The Sardinia yacht charter crowd will be in for an out-of-this-world surprise when anchored at night next to this vessel. The Jet Capsule’s interior and exterior lights are designed to give the impression that the vessel is a UFO spacecraft, as it appears to hover over the water!
Prices for the Lazzarini Design Jet Capsule are yet to be released…
