In that past we've written stories on luxury convertible boats, but the Kormaran Concept ($TBA) takes the idea of a transforming watercraft to an entirely new level. The boat is the brain child of a small Austrian company and features a full carbon fiber hull. The Kormaran can be used as a monohull, flyer, catamaran, trimaran, or transform into a luxury bathing deck. When hydrofoils are in use, water resistance is decreased by 80%. This means you'll be able to reach higher speeds while using less energy. Additional features include formula 1 and lightweight aircraft technology. Here's hoping we get to see this guy in action in the future.
