The 2024 Jet Capsule Super Sport, a brainchild of Italian designer Pierpaolo Lazzarini and his studio Lazzarini Design, marks a significant leap in the evolution of compact yet luxurious watercraft. Since its digital introduction in 2010, the Jet Capsule has been a testament to the notion that size does not dictate luxury or performance. This latest iteration, the Super Sport, elevates this concept with advanced materials and technology, offering an exclusive blend of high performance and luxury in a compact package.

Design and Construction: A Leap in Water Mobility

The 2024 Jet Capsule Super Sport, while retaining the distinctive pod-like structure reminiscent of an “angry alien,” introduces significant upgrades. The use of carbon fiber and a novel building technique, vacuum-infusion molding, has resulted in a lighter yet stronger superstructure. This advancement reduces the craft’s weight to 3,200 kg (7,055 lbs), a significant decrease from its predecessor’s 3,800 kg (8,377 lbs).

The Super Sport’s design is not just about aesthetics; it’s a functional marvel. The compact 8-meter (26.2 feet) vessel is surprisingly spacious, capable of accommodating up to 12 guests. It offers a customizable interior, featuring options such as a dinette, bathroom, beds, or an open-plan configuration with seating. The inclusion of a rooftop sundeck and an optional sliding door at the rear further enhances its versatility, making it an ideal choice for a luxury dayboat or a high-end tender for superyachts.

Performance and Power: Speed Meets Efficiency

At the heart of the Jet Capsule Super Sport’s performance is its powertrain. Equipped with a Hamilton Jet Drive and a 640 hp gas engine as standard, the vessel demonstrates remarkable efficiency and a reduced carbon footprint. The powertrain is adaptable, offering options ranging from 570 hp to 850 hp. This versatility ensures that the Jet Capsule can meet various operational needs and preferences.

Impressively, the Super Sport can reach 38 knots (43.7 mph/70.3 kph) and accelerate to 32 knots (36.8 mph/58.2 kph) in just 12 seconds. The addition of a full electric docking system highlights Lazzarini’s commitment to efficiency and environmental responsibility, allowing for quieter, emission-free maneuvering at lower speeds.

Customization and Luxury: Tailored to the T

True to Lazzarini’s ethos, the Jet Capsule Super Sport offers extensive customization options. Clients can tailor the interior layout and features to their specific needs, whether it’s for leisure, entertainment, or as a stylish tender to a larger yacht. The construction process, taking place in Italy, allows for a personalized approach, with a delivery timeline ranging from six to eighteen months.

Pricing and Market Positioning

While the exact pricing for the 2024 Jet Capsule Super Sport has not been publicly disclosed, it is anticipated to be a premium investment. For context, the original 2020 variant of the Jet Capsule was priced upwards of $250,000, with the Super Sport expected to command a higher price due to its advanced features and capabilities. This vessel is positioned as a luxury item, surpassing the typical powerboat in terms of features and performance, aiming to appeal to those seeking a unique mini-yacht experience.
