It’s high tech equipment includes electrohydraulic steering, a Simrad VHF radio and chart plotter, and a Bose audio system among other things. There are various customization options for the Jet Capsule ranging from a cabin with a kitchenette, beds, and a bathroom or a militarized model with a bulletproof body and windows. For commercial use it can easily be built into a limousine that seats 13 people comfortably.
As if it’s eye-catching appearance isn’t impressive enough, the Jet Capsule is fully equipped for speed as it features; a 325-hp Yanmar diesel engine along with a Hamilton water jet.
