This Radical Superyacht Concept Puts All Other Yachts to Shame
Let's suppose for a moment that you're filthy rich. We're talking the type of rich where you buy a Bugatti on a Tuesday because you have nothing better to do. In the future, designer Jonathan Schwinge imagines you'll also buy this Tetrahedron Superyacht that puts every other yacht to shame. This incredible boat is shaped like a pyramid, and doesn't even look like it should float. It works by levitating over the water when it's moving via a strut that attaches to a torpedo-shaped hull beneath the surface. It's called the HYSWAS, which stands for Hydrofoil Small Waterplane Area Ship. RELATED: See Images of the 2015 Bugatti Atlantean Racing Yacht by Fraser Leid
According to Digital Trends, the boat could hit speeds of around 17.2 mph during takeoff, and then travel at 43.7 mph when it's fully above water. It would also have a range of 3,000 nautical miles.
Schwinge's superyacht is nothing more than a concept drawing today with no word on whether or not he plans to build one. If it happens, be ready to spend a rather large chunk of change so you and up to 10 of your closest friends can travel the ocean in style.
