Drone sailboat transforms into spy sub
Pretty cool stuff.
Not to be confused with a remote-controlled boat children play with, the Submaran is enormous.
It's about the size of a Laser sailboat, at 13.5 feet long. It weighs nearly 280 pounds and with the wingsail up, the Submaran is an impressive 8 feet high.
Similar to an everyday sailboat, the self-sailing Submaran has a sail, but the sail has been designed to be retractable for underwater use.
Like some racing boats, the Submaran has a bulb keel, which allows for stability and counterforce for self-righting.
Cool idea. A drone ship could sail.... forever....
Ghost ship on the high seas.
