The Navier flying boat is a real thing. It is an electric hydrofoil boat that was designed and built by Sampriti Bhattacharyya, an Indian-American engineer.
Sampriti Bhattacharyya, a woman from Kolkata, India built a flying electric boat. She failed in Physics in school and continued her graduation in a small college of Kolkata.
She said, “According to Steve Jobs if anyone can do this, definitely you can also”.
The Navier 30 (N30) is still in the development stage, but it has the potential to revolutionise the way we travel on water. It could be used for a variety of purposes, such as commuting, tourism, and cargo transportation.
Here are some of the features of the Navier flying boat:
- Electric propulsion: The Navier 30 is powered by a 200 kW electric motor, which produces zero emissions.
- Hydrofoils: The Navier 30 uses hydrofoils to lift itself out of the water, which reduces drag and allows it to travel at higher speeds.
- Range: The Navier 30 has a range of up to 100 nautical miles (115 miles).
- Speed: The Navier 30 can travel at speeds of up to 30 knots (35 mph).
- Environmentally friendly: The Navier 30 is much more environmentally friendly than traditional boats, producing zero emissions and using 10 times less energy.
