You definitely didn't wake up this morning praying someone would slip this one into your feed - but hey, life comes at you fast, and how could you scroll past this awesome creation from Vanquish Yachts, the Vanqraft VQ16.

Essentially a fibreglass yacht tender/jet-ski hybrid, the 16-foot watercraft blends the agility and speed of a jet-ski with the comfort and practicalities of a small tender.

The Dutch yacht maker has specced out this creation with a 1.8-litre Yamaha engine with jet propulsion that's capable of spitting out 200 horsepower (yeah, that's spicy). This allows the summer water scooter to reach a top speed of 40 knots, with rumours that a supercharged 'Veloce' variant can boost that max speed to an admirable 50 knots (yeah, she quick).

As with all nice things, the price (of course) is only available on request, and as the saying goes; if you have to ask, you probably can't afford it. Some reports have suggested, however, that the Vanqraft VQ16 kicks off at US$89,000, with the Veloce starting at US$106,000.
