    While this 24-foot long by 11-foot wide, 3.5 ton behemoth isn’t what you might call a “personal” watercraft, it is remarkably similar in its design (from the bondline down) to a good ol’ PWC runabout. Designed and built by the founders of the Italian Jet Capsule Company, Luca Solla (CEO) and Pierpaolo Lazzarini (Chief Executive Designer), their latest creation is the 2015 Jet Taxi is soon to be made available for major waterfront cities.

    Quoted at being “just the first of many next generation water taxis,” the Jet Taxi is projected to become a mainstay of popular cities such as Dubai, Doha, Moscow, Miami, and Saint Petersburg. Able to accommodate 12 passengers and a single pilot (13 persons in total), the Jet Taxi is available with either a single 370HP diesel engine or a pair of 250HP gas engines, though Solla and Lazzarini are working adapting hybrid or even fully-electric power plants into future iterations.

    Its RINA CE certification rates it to 6-foot-high swells, but I don't think I'd want to personally try that out.
