Behold : the Jet Capsule Royal Version 001 motorboat – 8m long, fully enclosed with a bathroom, wet bar and leather seats for nine passengers.

Nice.

Bigger and more luxurious than its already fairly luxurious predecessor, the Jet Capsule comes in various configurations with single or dual Yanmar diesel engines paired with a Rolls Royce jet drive. Top speed is a very nippy 62 knots but for leisurely cruising, two Torqeedo electric engines spin the boat along at a more environmentally sensitive 12 knots.

Yours for about €250,000.

AHOY much?, etc.

    The old saying applies if you win the lottery or make a lot of money, don’t spend your cash on the three “Fs”

    If it flies!

    If it floats!

    If it f**ks!

    Fair play, Broadsheet. You start the day with Marxist diatribes and finish it with speedboats and sportscars.

    This. This is what we should have bought for the reintroduced Liffey taxi service. €10 a head for the lazy fupps who couldn’t be bothered to walk for five minutes across the bridge and this could pay for itself, instead of the open-air chugger they decided to use where everyone except the pilot will get wet when it rains and everyone will be freezing in winter. Also, Dublin to Holyhead in 45 minutes?

      It’s 110km Dublin to Holyhead (straight-line according to Google Maps) @62 knots (115km/hr) this is just over a hour…. and then you need to slow down to dock + in the harbour. Perhaps 90 minutes quay-to-quay?

          They’ll take it out of the marina out in Howth or Malahide once or twice a year and have absolutely zero idea how to maintain it, while being obnoxious enough to hold parties every couple of weekends.

          I know the type.

    “…leather seats for nice passengers”

    should that be nine passengers? or do the naughty passengers have to stand?

      can’t you clean leather
      I’d have thought it’s especially for the naught passenger

    Obviously modeled on a palm sander I saw in Woodies.
    These designers take their inspiration wherever they find it I suppose.
