It’s Half Yacht, Half-Jet Ski

A Luxury Water Craft For You and Five Friends

We say “jet ski.”

You say “Kenny Powers.”

So we say “wrong jet ski.”

Because we’re talking about the Vanqraft 16, the first jet ski we’ve ever seen that's deserving of the descriptor “opulent,” available now through Vanquish Yachts.

It’s half yacht tender, half water-scooter. And it’s absolutely unlike anything most mortals have seen on the water. A customizable, six-person craft you can ride at 40 knots while seated at its helm and steering it just like a jet ski. You can already hear Roman Abramovich shouting, “Hey, no fair, I want one of those,” from the deck of the Eclipse as you blow by.

This crazy Bond-like machine has a 200 horse-power engine with jet propulsion. And is prized for its maneuverability. It can even go backward should you need to reverse from one of those breaching whales that never look where they’re flopping.

So if you have a yacht, you now have an incredibly fun, eye-catching toy to race around the world’s secret coves before parking it neatly into your tender in time for a caviar bath.

And if you’re a non-yacht-owning individual like the rest of us, you can still acquire one to make waves with some of your favorite people for an afternoon.

Just tell them your yacht is at the mechanic.
