Italians Condense a Yacht Into a Teeny-Weeny Pod of Luxury

• http://www.wired.com, By Damon Lavrinc

The Jet Capsule comes in at 25 feet long and a little over 11 feet wide and has all the comforts you’d expect of a high-end yacht. There’s seating for eight, a diving platform, teak flooring, toilet, a bedroom conversion, and the ability to add a kitchen into the main compartment.

A Hamilton water jet engine puts out over 300 diesel-powered horsepower, good enough to get the Jet Capsule up to a cruising speed of 25 knots, or you can opt for a twin-engine design that boosts output to over 500 hp.

In addition to the customizable interior, there’s a rooftop platform for lounging in the sun and a UFO light scheme inside, outside, and underneath.

According to the designer, the Jet Capsule was created as “a boat small enough to be easily maneuvered, yet spacious enough to take a handful of friends out for drinks, over to a port for an evening’s entertainment.” So think of it more as a camper van for the seas rather than luxo-barge.
