Strand Craft V8 Daytona GT jetski

While there’s a plethora of jet skis out there, we’ll bet you’ve never seen one quite as big and brawny as this one from Strand Craft.

Called the V8 Daytona GT, this 5.1-metre (16.7-foot) beast rivals a car when it comes to size and power.

Think of it as a muscle car for the ocean.

As standard, it comes powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine.

However, a V8 turbo diesel is also available if you’d like a more torquey feel.

Either way, it’ll have plenty of power to haul you and its 567kg (1250lbs) heft around.

While it’s all muscle when it comes to the powertrain, everything on the surface is geared toward luxury.

For instance, there’s a teak wood deck like you’d get on a yacht.

It also has a 15-inch touchscreen and a premium sound system.


Of course, it also has GPS navigation available as well, along with an underwater camera.

Underneath the seat – which is covered in quilted leather – there’s even a cooler box to keep cold drinks in.

The seat is shock absorbing, too, meaning the waves won’t throw you around as much as they would on another jet ski.

There’s another storage area in the front of the craft as well, which makes it quite practical for a jetski.

A range of supercar-like bodywork options are available, including an exposed carbon fiber body.

Carbon and wooden inlays are also available if you don’t want to stick with the standard two-tone paint scheme.

Strand Craft hasn’t yet announced a price or release date for the jet ski.

But we’ve seen some comparably insane jet skis like the Bouvet Supermarine MM01 cost up to $900,000.

Taking that into account, this V8 Daytona GT is unlikely to be cheap.

The company was founded in America in 2003 primarily as a design and development company.

However, it’s had this jet ski in the works for the past five years, so we’re hoping it hits the market soon.
