Escape crowded cities and become the master of the high seas by climbing aboard the A2V’s aerodynamic boat ‘lili’. This aerodynamically designed composite fiberglass aircraft prototype was designed by the Nantes, France-based company Advanced aerodynamic vessels (A2V) in collaboration with Marc lombard yacht design group.
However, the watercraft measures 10.1 m in length and seats 12 passengers. The idea here is to reduce fuel consumption with a unique aerodynamic design. AS a result, this ultra-fast boat prototype flies over the water once it reaches the speed of 100 km/h.
That is to say, when it hits a particular speed, 80% of the weight lifted above the water. As a result, it reduces the drag and water surface contact to save fuel up to 50%. It has a payload of 1.2 tons including passengers. When comes to passenger comfort, they have inbuilt 12 leather seats and a panoramic window to make the ride enjoyable.
As I said earlier, the A2V claimed that it uses two to three times less fuel when compared to our traditional boat and other watercraft over a similar distance. To put it more simply, the aerodynamic boat Lili uses almost ten times less fuel than a helicopter to reach the same destination over the water.
Also, less fuel means less aquatic pollution. Further, this environmentally friendly and most luxurious vessel prised around 1.2 million euros. Of course, that is expensive than a standard boat, but at this point, we need to consider that extreme fuel saving as well
