I do have to agree with daiquiri though... save for the absurd helm, I rather like some aspects of the interior.

I haven't looked at any of the other links on their site, but it appears that EcoFriend have a habit of giving breath to absurd propositions...
This one is no better...

one of my favorite (not) things on eco products is - oh its recycled aluminum... Almost any aluminum is recycled and whether yours is or isn't makes little difference as it means its away from other uses and we need to mine more fresh aluminum - which is extremely energy intensive and far from ecological.

There was recently an eco WIG - after burner equipped electric turbines...
- here:

"It was also important for the craft to be environmentally friendly, because it will be used in all different eco-systems the design needed to follow regulations and standards. An electric drive motor can be used when moving through sensitive coastal areas. The craft uses a hydrogen fuel cell to power the jets and provides electric power for the users on board. "

Sorry, but when I hear "Dreamboat" -- this is what I think of --



IMHO, still beautiful after 80 years.

ya'll are the design "guru's" ... which is why I shared this ...

I like the lines, all the hard lines (boxy), of days gone by designs that make up the majority of what is available for budding builders is a wee bit insipid ...

That's a real charming beauty. Unfortunately will never be appreciated by car stylists who tend to ignore centuries of art of naval architecture and create sleek nonsense.
