The description of the latest developments of the project
could not yet be translated into English. However, the main
principles of the construction have been maintained. Insofar, the
Version No. 9 of the English presentation from 2006 are still
relevant in most of its parts.
The main improvements, which are presented in the German
description only, are as follows:
Return to the German
version. Most of the pictures and drawings of the improved
design speak for themselves!
- The floats
have been enlarged
in relation to the main hull (their shape has
- The "legs",
which connect the floats with the main hull (vertical in the
former version), have been forced apart by 10°.
- A new type of a wind
generator has been installed, a so called "twister" with a
vertical axis. It produces less wind pressure and reduces the
danger of capsizing of the boat. When wind direction fits, it
may be used alternatively as a group of wing sails for direct
propulsion. Look at the drawings at the page "Windturbine
- The drive
is now accomplished by two electric motors, each of which drive a
propeller. Each motor is situated in a pod, mounted at
the front float.
- All in all, the design
has been improved (see the first 3 pages of the german
version, beginning with "Ueberleitung1").
