While scuba diving off the St. Regis resort in Bora-Bora, Montreal-based industrial designer Charles Bombardier got to thinking on how to design a cruise ship that could navigate shallow waters. And after much consideration, Bombardier concluded an eco-friendly propulsion system was the answer. So, like any famed designer would do, he set out to put together a concept rendering of that vessel. In this case, he started with a yacht.

Dubbed the Seataci, this concept yacht uses Bombardier’s propulsion system in each of its connecting pods that would house an oscillating foil that pushes water like that tail of a whale. This system, Bombardier proposed, would generate less noise underwater, prove more efficient that propellers, and allow the vessel to venture into shallow waters. The yacht would also feature a ballast system used to sink its main hull as to allow passengers an underwater perspective, host a dining hall for events, observatory lounge, and a tropical garden on the deck with a pool and landing pads for personal drones. And since the Seataci boasts the unique ability to navigate shallow waters with ease, it would be used to traverse various atolls and archipelagos in fantastic fashion. So long Carnival Cruise.
