Sailboats are utterly elegant vessels that employ nature's forces to propel them forth, and the Land Yacht by Krisztian Griz poses the question of why the same method can't be used off of the water.

This clever concept takes the triangular canvas from the masts of a watercraft and places it on a hull equipped with wheels. Mimicking the body of a catamaran, the cutting-edge conveyance balances itself on three above-water pontoons, affording the skipper and passengers places to sit and be carried across the landscape with the help of the breeze.

The 4-meter-long vehicle is designed to be lightweight and built of fiberglass with carbon fiber reinforcements. Three wheels guide the Land Yacht by Krisztian Griz gracefully over various dry terrain in the fluent way its cousins move across the lake.
