By: | April 5th, 2015

Italian design studio Lazzarini recently presented Jet Capsule Reptile – a compact luxury yacht that provides comfort without sacrificing speed and maneuverability on the water.

Jet Capsule Reptile is a smaller, lighter, faster and more compact version of the Jet Capsule mini yacht that was launched earlier. The vessel is designed to handle waves of up to 1.5 meters (4.9 ft).

Lighter than its previous version by 1,102 lb (500 kg), this futuristic-looking water vehicle is capable of hitting top speeds of 50 knots, or well over 57 miles/hour. The Jet Capsule Reptile has a powerful engine, the Gillmor MV8, which generates a peak power of 570 HP at 6000 RPM.

This compact vessel is 7.5 meters long and 3.5 meters wide. Sheathed in a carbon fiber shell, this craft can seat eight to 12 passengers, along with a captain. All the seats are equipped with anti-shock suspense system. It also features a protected deck with a seating area, rear diving platform, and a toilet.

Each reptile is hand made in Italy and takes nine months to deliver. The price of the reptile is over $280,000 with an international warranty.
