Designed by medical tech millionaire Gregory Sancoff, Juliet Marine’s Ghost is the ultimate stealthy fast attack craft that could change the rules of naval transportation. Similar in looks with the Stealth aircraft, Ghost comes with a long range, low fuel burn, gas turbine powered and, best of all, it’s scalable.
The command module has a large open area that can be customized and the vessel comes with reconfigurable hulls for different sea states.

The only existing prototype was designed by Gregory Sancoff who claims to have spent more than $15 million developing and building the ship at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Maine. What makes this vessel special is its capacity of traveling above the water’s surface, a feature that keeps the entire ship steady, while it moves by two narrow struts.

The struts always remain underwater, each of it being attached to a 62-foot (18 meters) long tube that contains a 2,000 horsepower gas turbine engine each. According to Gizmodo, the 38-foot long main cabin rests atop a pair of 12-foot tall struts which, when moving at speed, prop the cabin above the water like a hydrofoil. Even cooler, the struts swivel at their base, allowing them to be raised and lowered depending on the water depth.

Ghost technology is suitable for fleet force protection, special operations, command and control, and mine warfare and detection. It’s initial design offers space for three people, a pilot, a weapons officer and a crew engineer. However, in its current configuration can accommodate 18-personnel, or cannons and missile technologies,” the craft is described in the video below. But we’ll just let you figure it out yourself.
