This strange watercraft comes from Marine Advanced Research. It represents a new mean of water transportation, introducing a new patented technology.
The overall shape is flexible, unlike the old fashioned watercrafts, which force the water to wrap around their bodies.
Proteus is formed from a big sized structure, fixed on a number of components that have interdependent moves. These components include shock absorbers, arches and articulations that help the craft adapt to water.
This is a modular craft and it can be easily changed according to the load. Proteus is made of aluminum, titanium and reinforced fabrics.
The big “legs” can be customized to clients’ requirements, various lengths being allowed. Proteus has an autonomy of 5000 miles and low fuel consumption, with a reduced impact on the environment.
