Cas Dahmen is a graduate of the Royal College of Art and his hydrofoil catamaran is a waterborne vehicle that might prove to be revolutionary both in mechanical design and aesthetic appearance. The vehicle is meant to be a high-end autonomous form of public transportation. Specifically, Cas Dahmen envisioned it to be useful in cities like Dubai or Saudi Arabia.

The hydrofoil catamaran is designed to be fully electric, allowing the designer to market it as a zero-emissions vehicle that is an eco-friendly alternative to the motorized water boat. The sustainable concept is essentially born from the crossover of a Hydrofoil racing boat -- one that "lifts itself up off the water upon reaching a certain speed," and the Japanese Shinkansen high-speed bullet train.
