[Swath Design - Concept Car] Main Deliverables of this Project

Design and build the interiors and exteriors of a concept car, code named Aqueria.



The modes of sea transportation are changing everyday. Traditional, conventional, and modern boats and yachts are continuously being improved and upgraded with new technology. New designs, concepts, and technology are making it possible for people to explore greater depths and larger expanse of oceans and seas. 

We want to design a unique small boat-car, designed with the stability of a swath boat and the looks and comfort of a high-end car. Aquaria is designed to transport up to 6 passengers at a time over short distances - from one seapod to another or from one boat to another. 

Design of the swath is available here.

Why this is important

The most commonly used mode of transport over water for short distances are small boats, dinghies, paddle boats and rafts. These modes of transport have their limitations like speed, stability over water, and protection from heat, humidity, rain and harsh sunshine. 

The design of this concept boat-car is inspired by high-end cars on land. The swatch boat chassis provides stability to the structure, thereby increasing fuel efficiency, maneuverability and speed compared to other boats. Being a small sized boat-car, sail preparations are lesser than that of regular boats and rafts. 

Always ready - As in cars on land, Aqueria is always ready. Unlock, board and get away.

What this project needs to move forward

A team of highly talented, skilled and motivated people who can hit the ground running. We need these skills to move this project forward:

  • Automotive Enthusiasts - Students and professionals who are enthusiastic about designing and creating futuristic concept car interiors and exteriors. 
  • Interior Design Specialists - Designers who have a panache for car interiors. 
  • Hands-on Builder - Building the structure and assembling the AC components, electrical and electronic components.
  • Architect/Structural Engineers - Contributors who are highly skilled in structural design. Ideally, this person must be able to plan and collaborate with the team to build strong structure for the concept car.
