Its a Boat, Its a Jetski

We have heard about crossovers in the automotive world, cross between an SUV and a coupe, aka the BMW X6 or the cross between a car and an SUV, the softroader and what not. However, here is an interesting piece of machinery which is a cross between a boat and a jet ski.

Its built by Dutch yacht builder Vanquish Yachts and is called the Vanqraft VQ 16. Note the spelling of Vanqraft. This crossover is large enough to act as a tender for ferrying five fat cat owners of a super yacht to a beach party, while being fast and agile enough to give the thrills of a jetski. This 5.07m long boat has two seats in the bow section and two at the rear while there is a long jetski style helm seat in the middle with a scooter handle to control the vessel.

It is built from fiberglass to keep it light and, add to the speed. It has a beam of 1.66 m and draught of 0.2 m to allow it to go into really shallow waters. Its powered by a 1.8 litre Yamaha engine pushing out 200 horsepower and pushing the Vaqraft to a top speed of 40 knots (72 km/h). If this still doesnot satisfy your need for speed, you can opt for the Veloce vesion which has a supercharged engine and pushes the boat to 50 knots (90 km/h) top speed.
