Tetra

Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, but the Tetrahedron superyacht does fly. If your first thought is, “That’ll never get built,” think again. Designs for Tetrahedron have been around for a while, but its designer, Jonathan Schwinge, is looking to forge a partnership to build the wild yacht design with a big German yard.

At rest, or low speeds, the carbon fibre Tetra is effectively a trimaran, floating on three underbelly hulls. At speed, it rises on foils jutting out of a torpedo hull, allowing it to 'fly' at speeds of up to 38 knots. It works, too, as it’s based on an existing hull design by the Maritime Applied Physics Corporation in the US. Despite measuring just 21.6 metres, its unusual shape still guarantees lots of volume, providing accommodation for six guests and four crew.
