Technical Information


The Patented 940 cargo hold is 35 feet wide, and kept afloat at or near the surface when static or going slow by two side helium filled tubes, 55 feet in diameter, and 940 feet long. Each wingspan is 300 feet. Aerospace Engineers at Lockheed Martin and GE agreed these wings can begin to create lift at 60 MPH and achieve max lift around 200 MPH.

Each Wingspan max lift is 1,100 tons, roughly twice that of a 747 aircraft. Eight wings combine to lift nearly 9,000 tons. Under payload, our estimated ship weight is 15,000 tons. The Founder’s patent pending propulsion system with three 50,000 -100,000 hp gas turbines, turning counter-rotating surface propellers will push this loaded ship to 70 mph. At 60 mph the wings fold out and begin to lift, the helium tubes are lifted from the water, so the ship accelerates as resistance is reduced. Planning off on the center hull, the propellers pitch increases to continue tremendous propulsion to 300 mph. This speed is assisted by the center of each forward wing fitted with two 65,000 ft lbs of thrust turbofans. Eight total engines combine to 520,000 ft lbs of thrust, therefore: 300 + mph. Length overall is 1,030 feet. (We will build a 130 ft prototype with three wings and two turbines).

Our Technology and Patents

Mr. Perko has established several patents that have been researched by top naval engineers from Band, Lavis, and Associates, Naval Architects in Maryland, who advised the Founder to, “put a wing on it,” to reduce water surface resistance. The Founder then consulted with Lockheed Martin and GE Power/Gas Turbine aerodynamic engineers separately, but both estimated our ship speed at 300 mph. Most recently Columbia-Sentinel Engineers, whose founder is a Naval Architect and Maritime Engineer, who spent six years working for Boeing, Inc. in Seattle WA, stated the combined wing lift and high performance water propeller propulsion systems will work wonderfully together as a feasible and extremely high speed ship design. Our goal of creating fleets of cargo ships capable of safely and efficiently making it anywhere from 200 to 300 mph in open seas is viable.

Our patents are based upon four primary technologies and require the use of gas turbine engines to make this speed a reality. These techonogies are the use of massive helium filled tubes running the length of the ship’s vertical sides and flattened areas fixed with rails and hydraulics to lift the helium tubes from the water; a wrap covers the surface of the helium tubes which is physically bound to the plating fixed both sides of the rails and hydraulics. The wrap holds the tubes in place securely, and protects the tubes from sun light, surface resistance, and sea spray damage. The outer wrap will be changed like your car tires, built of rubberized metal weave and Kevlar material, so the helium tubes can remain undisturbed for years. Finally, our ships will include fold-back wing technology that leverages the same principles as a large jetliner in allowing massive amounts of weight to be lifted at high speeds.

How It Works

As the ships accelerate up to speeds around 60 mph they will plane off on our center 35-foot wide aluminum hull, at which point our Ship Wings fold out to create additional lift. The wings are also to be fixed with large turbofans creating a combined 560,000 foot pounds of thrust. Speed then increases as air speed over the wings increases, reaching lift of 8,000 tons or more with potential ship speed reaching 300 mph.

The initial push is planned to be provided by three 50,000 to 100,000 shaft horsepower turbo-shaft engines. These turbo-shafts will spin our Patent Pending: Multi-Pitch, Trimmed, Counter Rotating Surface Drives.  

Counter rotating increases fuel efficiency by as much as 25% over a single propeller in the water.  Surface drives are also 25% more efficient than a single submerged propeller.  As a result our fuel efficiency is designed to be 50% more efficient than today’s large cargo ships spinning a massive single propeller per shaft submerge under the ship.

Each 980 foot ship crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in sixteen hours is projected to consume up to $600,000 in natural gas.

Our Cargo Containers and Services

United States trucking operates 53 foot trailers that are stacked for rail movement across the country. As the fleet is being built we will seek the cooperation of a few larger trucking firms to reinforce their trailers to be stacked three high for loading completely protected inside our high speed ship lower cargo hold. With our 35 foot wide beam we will build a large enough ship to carry 200 cargo/truck trailers, lifted from their chassis and stacked prior to loading into our lower roll on/roll off, rear loading container cargo hold.

Each one way crossing of the Atlantic Ocean at 70% load capacity we project grossing $1,386,000 from containers, another $250,000 from express parcels carried for UPS, FedEx, the Post Office, and DHL, and 50% of our 2,200 passenger capacity to gross $286,000 per each one way trip. This income will be augmented by our daily coastal container shuttle service, parking fees, beverage revenue, etc., and leased ship cost center income; totaling billions to be grossed in our first full year of operations.
