It is being called Aviation on sea.  The Tetrahedron Super Yatch is a super luxury concept vehicle which looks like an alien space ship.  The vertical strut attached to a submerged torpedo-shaped hull helps it levitate on the water.

It travels very smoothly on water because its unique design helps it to handle roll forces, pitch and heave.

It is made from carbon fiber and duplex stainless steel.  This craft is designed by Jonathan Schwinge.  The Super Yatch has a ‘flying speed’ of43.7mph above the water line and a take-off speed of 17.2mph, with a range of 3,000 nautical miles.

It sits on the water at low speeds helped by its three hulls.  And as it picks up speed it rises above water rises from the water as the hydrofoils rotate on the submerged HYSWAS (hydrofoil small waterplane area ship) hull.

The designer Schwinge describes the basis of the yatch’s stability thus.

‘A three-based pyramid consisting of four faces and six leading edges provides fundamental stability and enclosure.’  He added: ‘Its form produces a pure, precise, logical and mathematical “roof” for which to connect to the hull assembly. Generally, simple forms are not known in ship and motor yacht construction through restrictions in ocean-going hull design.

‘Long distances are achievable with reduced out-of-water drag and stormy ocean conditions would incur virtually no slamming.’

If vehicles like these become a reality the future of transportation will be radically altered!
