A high-speed vessel equipped a similar planing hull can be used to commute with family and guests up to 12 (plus a crew of 12) around the beautiful Med and beyond.
You can go to sleep tonight in Palma, and wake up in Monaco tomorrow morning, your personal assistant is onboard with you, your beloved wardrobe, your office, your computer, the library, they are there too, fully operational during the entire commute.
This would also be an ideal floating-office: the UHNWI and his staff could travel in this fashion to and from any coastal destination.
Thanks to the new, state of the art Voith Linear Jet drives, 24 people can travel – with every luxury – at 70 km/h (or 35 knots), the time loss and emissions have found a good compromise, maybe more efficient than moving by plane or by ferry and RO-ROs. This is also more pleasant compared to a conventional commute, no need to carry bags, to go to the airport, parking, check-in, flights, hotels.
The latest revision of this deep-Vee features two state of the art, quiet, Voith Turbo linear-jets as main transmission (and one optional Castoldi water-jet booster). When not needed the waterjet booster engine and its intake can remain shut off, and the range extended further with a cruise speed of 16 and up to 25 knots.
