…The Proteus is a whole new kind of boat?


The WAM-V, or Wave Adaptive Modular Vessel, or Proteus depending on how sciency you want to sound, is a new kind of boat that looks sort of like a catamaran and has been running around the San Francisco bay for a while confusing all onlookers. The boat features inflatable hulls that only dip into the water about a foot, and suspends the cabin beneath titanium spring-loaded struts to absorb the shocks that are sure to come when you’re charging through waves at the top speed of 70mph. With two 355hp diesel engines onboard and a range of 5,000 miles, it’s a $5 million wonder boat that is sure to please some lucky (and wealthy) boat lover.
