The Daytona GT is not the only unique creation from Strand Craft. Nearly a decade ago, the company made ultra-exclusive yachts, and named them the 166 and 122. Costing multi-million dollars, the super luxury yachts were akin to hotels floating on the ocean. They also came with garage for those who would want to park their luxury car collection inside the yacht. Thus, the V8-powered jet-ski from the company doesn't come as a big surprise.
