Semi-trimaran runaboat with wavepiercing fore hulls

An explorative study, focusing on design elements. The concept is a combination of a classic car and a modern runaboat. Incorporating wavepiercing hulls with features to reduce drag when running into waves, and semi-trimaran arrangement to achieve a stable, smooth ride.

With modifications of the area between fore hulls, eliminating nondesirable flow effects, a reliably operatable boat may be built.

Having relatively great, almost planar surface on the boat is the legacy of the initial concept of creating an electrically propulsed tender. Such design allows to carry 11 square metres of photoelectric panels.

Driving the craft is meant by dual jet drives in fore hulls.
