Is This The Future Of Airborne Cruising?
The Tetrahedron Super Yacht is conceived by architect Jonathan Schwinge who is based in London. The yacht will be designed to have 4 faces and 6 edges which provides stability and enclosure. The design itself is sharp, sleek, sophisticated and will levitate above the waterline like a spaceship in an elevated mode and will be able to travel at high speed. The design also includes side-mounted adjustable hydrofoils. At low speed the yacht will sit onto the three underbelly hulls and at high speed the hydrofoils will rotate on the lower hull which is submerged, making the triangle raise out of the water perfectly.
High in the sky you will not continuously be sea sick, struck by harsh and heavy waves, instead you can relax like you're on cloud 9 (almost literally). It can travel long distances without having difficulty moving across the water which creates a smoother experience.
Taken from the aviation industry, the auto-pilot 'fly-by-light' system would be a great tool to manage challenging roll forces and would help maintain 'foil bourne' speed and control the pitch and heave.
The cost and release date is confidential but Schwinge says the private owner must be "visionary" and "innovative" who wants to experince new technology within the elevated yachting sector and it will be used for private, charter and/or corporate use.
