Italian design studio Lazzarini recently presented its first "mini yacht" during the 2013 Monaco Yacht Show. The Jet Capsule is a compact water craft measuring 7.5 meters (24.6 ft) long and 3.5 meters (11.5ft) wide. The futuristic looking vessel can be customized to suit a myriad of purposes including a water taxi, emergency water vehicle, patrol boat, scuba diving vessel or recreational cruiser.
Spare a thought for the super rich. Not only do they have to worry about whether their luxury yacht is up to snuff, but they also have to make sure their tender can ferry guests to it in style, their day boat is well equipped for a day away, and their shadow boat has enough room for all the watertoys. French company EAMS believes it has the answer with its Tender Toy concept that it says is "3 tenders in 1."
This was the seventh year exhibiting at the Monaco Yacht Show for U-Boat Worx where the Netherlands-based company is making a habit of unveiling new models. Last year it was the C-Explorer 5
and this year the covers have been thrown off the final design for the C-Explorer 3. But the company may not be done yet, with a layout design for a C-Explorer 7 having also been completed.
