Can You Tell What This Is? (Photos)


A London-based architect created a remarkable design for a yacht, called the Tetrahedron Super Yacht. 

The futuristic vessel, designed by Jonathan Schwinge, levitates due to a vertical strut that's attached to a torpedo-shaped hull -- and includes an outdoor dining area, a significant amount of deck space and a "flying speed" of 38 knots. 

The vessel is made from carbon fiber and stainless steel, and can accommodate six passengers and four crew members. Schwinge said his design allows for the yacht to travel smoothly through rough waters.

"The design is instigated by the rethinking of the form, superstructure and propulsion of the modern superyacht into a radically simple enclosure and an elevated mode of travel above the water line," Schwinge said in a statement.

"A three-based pyramid consisting of four faces and six leading edges provides fundamental stability and enclosure. 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."
