Belassi’s newest jet ski is vying to redefine the personal watercraft category. Named after the Italian translation of “storm,” the Burrasca is primed to unleash a hurricane of power and has been fittingly described as a “marine hypercraft.”
Handbuilt in Austria, the speed machine features an impressive silhouette inspired by Italian motorcycles and aerodynamic carbon-fiber accents just like a hypercar. It comprises more than 2,000 individual parts, including a race-grade composite hull with a unique pointed keel to help it effortlessly cut through the seas.
Beyond its eye-catching style, Burrasca promises blistering speeds. That’s thanks to a turbocharged 1,602 cc marine 3-cylinder in house build engine, which is capable of producing gutsy 320 horses. According to the Austrian builder, this gives the hypercraft the ability to rocket from a standstill to 100 km/h in less than four seconds and soar to an exhilarating top speed of around 130 km/h.
The best part? Since each Burrasca is handcrafted, you can pick any color you like for the exterior. It’s likely to get a polished finish, too, as each unit takes 100 hours to come to fruition, according to the brand. As a testament to the team’s design nous, Belassi recently won a renowned Red Dot Design Award for the Burrasca.
