Itís always to good to have a dream and along with my old mate Vlad Murnikov we have a dream to build the worldís fastest monohull, a futuristic yacht we call, appropriately SpeedDream. While this project is still in its relative infancy we have made huge progress. We have assembled a talented team of designers, boat builders and engineers and received global coverage since announcing the project early in 2010. This is a project that will happen for one simple reason; we will never give up and there is no fixed timeline by which we have to build the boat.
The goal is to build a 35 foot prototype to test out some of the more radical ideas. Discovery Networks are keen to work with us to produce a series of television programs about SpeedDream and we will leverage that coverage and the success of the prototype into the 100 foot version that will smash all existing monohull speed records. Indeed we think itís within the realm of possibility that we could smash some of the existing multihull records as well despite the common thinking that a monohull is never as fast as a multihull. I say letís just wait and see.
