Remember jet capsules, that series of mini yacht designed by the Italian design studio Lazzarini? The minimalist approach and versatility fascinated me a lot, like all the jobs of this study in general.
Today, a few years later, jet capsule unveils its DuePuntoZero line, with a renewed model and another focused on the number of passengers.
Both new models measure 9,5m in length and are available in full electric mode. specifically oriented to transport, the Jet Capsule solution retains all its versatility. It can become a nautical platform of the future, with configurations of all kinds: from a private boat to a shuttle for 20 passengers.
Jet capsules, versatile transport on the water
The structure of these vessels is made up of a combination of carbon fiber and glass fiber. For lighting, a newly developed LED headlight system offers the possibility to adjust the intensity and angle of the light. The front is also equipped with a water surface scanner to avoid obstacles.
On board jet capsule has a protected deck and a dinette, which in the version without toilet can accommodate up to 20 passengers plus a captain. Alternatively, with the addition of a toilet, they can accommodate 16 passengers and there is room for a wheelchair or luggage compartment.
There is also a more spacious leisure version, designed for just 10 people. Consider it the nautical equivalent of a private jet.
Engines and prices
instead of the double yanmar engines, there is also the possibility of installing a triple electric motor set up with 450 kW of electric power. with this configuration the boat has the ability to navigate, dock and maneuver in full electric mode with speeds up to 30 knots. a hybrid configuration is also available in the new range of jet capsules.
Depending on the power chosen, jet capsule can comfortably navigate at speeds between 35 and 45 knots. In the hyper jet version, the ship can reach over 60 knots.
Both models feature a dual 24.000 BTU air conditioning system. the two point zero (2.0) is sold starting at $ 500.000, reaching up to $ 1 million for the hyper jet version.
