The Octuri Wind Powered Yacht Doubles as a Plane
Put this on the list of things we’ll buy when we’re rich and famous. Designer Yelken Octuri has created a flying yacht for princes Aziz, Dawood and Hashim. The flying yacht was designed to allow the princes to enjoy sailing along the Omani coastline. Four masts retract to become wings as the yacht turns into a plane.
The yacht plane is powered by four dual propeller Nissen & Brasseur powerhead engines, which aren’t green in and of themselves. But when used as a yacht, the craft is essentially wind-powered, making it a super-efficient way to transition from sea to air transport and save energy while on the water.
