Is this really a yacht? Or Darth Vader's ship on water? Either way, it looks like it costs more than a couple of arms and legs. Designed by Jonathan Schwinge, it uses a pyramid shaped geometry of a Tetrahedron.
And it actually looks stunning!
It was designed in a way to navigate through water.
According to Schwinge:
The Tetrahedron would have the appearance at high-speed of ‘levitating’ over the water: a boat that can fly. This is produced by a HYSWAS hull – A Hydrofoil Small Waterplane Area Ship – that is comprised of a single vertical strut onto a single submerged ‘torpedo’ hull. The vessel will lift out of the water at speed on side-mounted adjustable hydrofoils.
This hull form has two working ‘waterlines’ for its operation. At low speed the Tetrahedron sits gently onto three underbelly hulls. At high-speed the hydrofoils rotate on the lower submerged hull, causing the effect of mysteriously raising the triangle out of the water.
The concept design of this HYSWAS craft is based upon an existing hull design which has been developed by several companies, notably the Maritime Applied Physics Corporation in America, and has been proven by their technology demonstrator – ‘The Quest’ – in 1995.
