Check out BMW's new battery-powered hydrofoil watercraft
Some are calling the "most futuristic boat ever."
BMW is of course known best for its land vehicles but recently it teamed up with boat maker TYDE to create what some are calling the "most futuristic boat ever."
I'm not a fan of its ""luxury design vernacular"" but I do like that the hydrofoil is emissions free and has a top speed of 30 knots (55 km/hr). Speedy! It's easy to imagine a different version of it working well as a water taxi/passenger ferry.
(Off topic but: I wonder if rising ocean waters due to climate change + increasing regulatory pressure minimising concrete use will cause coastal communities to rely more on water travel in the future? 🤔)
