Sea Eagle SE20

A major reason why Sea Skimming craft could have this advantage of size over aircraft is that for aircraft to become any bigger than they are now, new airports and infrastructure would have to be built at every port of call, costing hundreds of billions of dollars. Whereas the largest Sea Skimming vehicle ever proposed  is still small by marine standards, when you consider the bulk cargo ships of up to 500,000 tons.

This potential has not been lost on the Sea Eagle Design team and many concept drawings have been muted of what a craft of this size should look like.

The need for strategic partners has also been recognized in all areas of the Sea Eagle development, financial, marketing, licensed manufacturing, additional research and development to name a few.

The future for Sea Eagle and all sea skimming WIG developments is very bright indeed, as we stand at the doorway of the birth of a new era in transport we can do nothing but wonder in awe at its true potential.
