SHARK - playing the gravity
The Shark is characterized by an unusual extreme speed and a very aggressive flexibility; it is the more efficient payload and higher speed. The super high speed is combined with a great stability, so flexibility is obtained at a high controllability.
The result is an extraordinary design on marine crafts, a bright marine craft that guarantees pure adrenaline, with super high speed and utmost flexibility.
Its innovative behaviour is due to the application of the new technology “the Dynamic Stability” and the knowledge of the Internal Dynamics, keeping the centre of gravity under control by manipulating the pressure on it by means of the two air propellers each of them individually orientable.
This marine vehicle has a body in the form of a supersonic wing profile, which, compared to the Delta form, is strongly rounded at the top.
The cockpit is made separately as an watertight module mounted in the hull. This module is made to resist impact and constitutes a survival capsule. The cockpit is closed off with a transparent plastic dome. The two fuel tanks are located in the hull on both sides of the cockpit module. At the top of the body there is a long size cabin for the pilot(s), the necessary equipment and the oil tanks. Behind the body at the top side, at both sides of the cabin, there are two air propellers for the propulsion and steering. The engines are mounted inside the engine housings on a support system. Under the body there is a fin which has a hydrodynamic function, even when the vehicle is not in motion, so that the boat is very comfortable and light on the water surface.
The Shark can be built for two or more passengers.
Many applications can be disposed, such as recreational and sport activities, transport for people or freight, explorations missions, humanitarian operations, coast watch, etc.
''This marine vehicle is conceived based on very healthy flow mechanisms by which vehicles are created with an extraordinary serie of aero and hydrodynamic qualities, which enhance its high stability, steering and manoeuvrability, a very high payload and unusual high speed''.
- Width: 2,99 m.
- Length: 3,66 m.
- Length of the foil board: 1,70 m.
- Engines: Hirth 32o3, 2 cycle, 65 hp, dual carburetor, electric start, gearbox and fuel injection (basic weight of one engine is 31 kg).
- Propeller: 0, m.
- 2 petrol tanks of 40l each.
- CE-classification: C-inshore-Up to, including 6 Beaufort wave height max. 2m
Aggressively and high manoeuvrability.
The boat is fast from the start on and even at taking curves.
It can stop quickly during any manoeuvres while it stays perfectly manageable.
It is safe, reliable, it doesn’t jerk and won't turn over, or capsize.
Fast and safe transport.
The foil is made of sandwich carbon and Kevlar to guarantee rigidity, impact resistance, lightweight and planning capacity. The foil is completely foamed.
Construction budget at disposal Market combinations
- Transport for 2 passengers.
- Applications for civil purposes as transport for people and freight.
- Recreational and sport activities.
- Exploration missions.
- Humanitarian operations.
- Defense purposes.
- Marine taxi (up to two passengers).
More market combinations
The principle of the craft can be additionally developed for more people and freight (due to its high payload capacity).
As to the compatibility of licences it does appear unlikely to us that producers of defence materials will accept that the same marine vehicle with such expansive behaviour and possibilities would be brought to the free market as transportation craft or commercial craft, race or sports craft.
