Is it a Yacht or a Jet Plane – it’s both, the Fly Cruiser
As far as concept go, it doesn’t get any stranger than this, unless you consider Phil Pauley’s Halo Interceptor to be strange.
Pauley is back again with a few concepts that pushe the envelope and tests the laws of physics with his Yacht Cruiser, Sub Cruiser, Fly Cruiser and Power Cruiser, or as he affectionately calls them , the Cruiser Series. Putting the obvious stunning good looks aside, Pauley is proposing his family of boats could fly, submerge, or sprout an extra deck.
The most unusual being the Fly Cruiser…similar to the GAV, this concept gives users the option of taking to the air and cruising at a speed of over 100 knots. With the touch of a button, engine-equipped wings would fold out from the sides, allowing it to lift off from the surface of the water once it had achieved take-off velocity. A dagger board on the underside would help stabilize it while taking off, and would retract once the boat became airborne.
