One Sharp Sand Yacht

venturi_01

The Venturi Y concept is the latest way to speed across wide open spaces without any engine! Well, almost no engine. Like every sand yacht, it’s pushed by the wind. However, two compact electric motors eventually power the rear wheels for maneuvering. They also allow the vehicle to get back into the right trajectory to have the sail perfectly exposed to the wind.

The cockpit and the sail are supported as one element in the form of a carbon-fiber monohull. It’s sharp and extremely aerodynamic to slice through the same air that’s propelling it. The rear wheels have a specific profile to adapt the friction surface depending of the speed and how hard the ground is. The inclination of these two wheels is also variable.
