Crew Transfer Vessel

Hydroglyder, our state-of-the-art electric crew transfer vessel, combines innovative hydrofoil technology with electric propulsion and batteries to deliver superior ride comfort while producing zero-emissions.

Hydroglyder represents the most economical and environment-friendly option for marine transportation.

Features of Hydroglyder

Active Foiling Control

The hydrofoil technology lifts the hull above water to drastically reduce water resistance and increase energy efficiency per nautical mile travelled compared to other conventional vessels. This technology helps the vessel glide above water to provide unparalleled ride comfort.

Energy Efficient

From minimizing power loses in the electrical system design and component selection to having a lightweight composite hull, the Hydroglyder is engineered to be the most energy-efficient vessel possible.

Situational Awareness

With advanced sensors and navigation systems, Hydroglyder features situational awareness and decision-making capabilities, making it a safe and reliable vessel for crew transfer operations.

Auto Docking & Autonomous Systems

The auto docking feature enables the vessel to position itself along the berth for crew change and charging operation.

3D Printed Passenger Seats

The passenger seats are custom 3D printed to ensure the lightest possible marine-grade seats. As a result, the seats only weigh a few kilograms. They are easy to clean and ergonomically designed for comfort.
