So different from everything else, it is impossible not to notice in the waters of Korablnaya Naberezhnaya. It is: the Jet Capsule. The only one in Russia. In fact, there are only two in the world (the other is owned by the Prince of Monaco).
The first comparison that comes to mind is from the film "Guest From the Future" (a Soviet miniseries about time travel). Well, remember the contraption Kolya Gerasimov uses to escape the space pirates? In popular culture there is a more "adult" description for the Jet Capsule: The love child of a Jet Ski and promiscuous luxury yacht.
The Jet Capsule is designed for short cruises. Built at a Naples shipyard by Italian designers Pierpaolo Lazzarini and Luca Solla, the futuristic exterior design and nearly cosmic interior have amazed the city's residents and tourists.
The boat's panoramic cabin can comfortably take tours of eight. The cabin is equipped inside with light-emitting diodes, and evening inside the Jet Capsule feels as if inside the space shuttle...
The Jet Capsule floats on the waters of the Zolotoy Rog, launching from the dock at Korabelnaya Naberezhnaya.
Tours start at noon and continue until dusk, depending on the weather. The Jet Capsule does not tolerate large waves.
A 15-minute tour is quite affordable at 300 rubles per person. Customized tours can be ordered with the price to be negotiated.
