Next Big Thing – air-propulsion yacht

Is it a boat? Is it a plane? Or is it the future of both?

The future of ironing this week, is it?

This next-gen boat won’t be sailed by anyone who does anything as menial as ironing. Although if you want your clothes dried, those top-mounted props’ll get your shirts done in seconds.

Yes, why are the propellors in the wrong place?

To increase maneouvrability and acceleration. The Aguila Design Xi yacht exploits aeronautical tech to the advantage of its performance. Also, you won’t snag someone’s lobster pot on your way home.

It looks tiny

Well, it hasn’t been built yet, so this is just a model. The living space promises to be “unique” and “transformable”, both words we think an estate agent might supplant for “tiny.” Do we want one any less? Not really.
