    It is not going to be built. It is concept art to be viewed along side drawings of flying cars and houses built in the clouds.

    "The Fresnel Hydrofoil Trimaran, set for construction starting April this year, has been designed for Holden Manz wine estate in Franschoek, South Africa"

    Sounds like someone expects it to be built.

    Funny you should say South Africa as I was thinking of Fanie when I saw it.

    There's tubes where he could store long lengths of Biltong and Solar Panels for his water maker.

    But for me it lacks a sun deck, swim platform, storage for diving gear and somewhere to fish from.

    Sorry Fanie.

    For some reason I thought of any possible owner walking their pet coconut crab.

    Wet Dream might be an appropriate name for such an imaginary creation.

    Its a fantasy design proposed by someone who appears to have little grasp of the issues associated with the marine environment. The level of complexity makes comprehending the sketches provided difficult to the point where you almost wonder if the "designer" took that path intentionally.

    I don't think this makes much of a contribution to the state of marine design.

    I believe this is a type of medical device although not sure how (or where) it would be used.

    It looks like it might be used in a walletectimy.

    Before thinking too hard about it, consider the newspaper it came from!

    I can't see how the center of effort of the sail is balanced by the hull form. I see she has also designed a vertical prison in the middle of the ocean that creates power from a hydroplant from it's own water fall. I wonder how the water gets pumped up the tower?

    In the central hull there's a small room where Hans and Franz will be forced to pump it up.

    The prison is designed for the oceans of Pandora. They need to anchor it under one of those floating mountains that has a waterfall coming off it.
