A high-speed powerboat inspired by First World War biplanes has become the world's first to 'fly' above the water on futuristic hydrofoils.
The makers of the W-Foil Albatross claim it can hit blistering speeds of 70mph thanks to its revolutionary design which lifts the boat clear of the water.
Rather than bring driven by an underwater propellor like other boats, it is pulled along by an aeroplane rotor.
And because of its minimal drag, it is also among the most environmentally friendly powerboats in the world.
