Gentleman jet ski: Strand Craft V8 Wet Rod

While yachts can be timeless icons of style (think Wallys), jet skis have always been designed largely or even solely with performance in mind. Until now, that is. Strand Craft from Newport Beach has designed a jet ski that melds style and speed…

Despite its vast length (it’s nearly 16 feet long), the Strand Craft V8 Wet Rod is fast thanks to its lightweight carbon body and 300HP 5.7-litre V8, capable of propelling the jet ski up to 65mph. The gent’s jet ski also has a waterproof storage box, an ice-cooler under the seat and, if requested, a sound/navigation system. Personalisation stretches to different colours and materials, such as wood for the decking. In other words, it’s the perfect mode of transport for a jaunt in the Med.
