Aether Cruise Experience
macbyers.com This is my final year university project for Transport Design BA (Hons) at the University of Huddersfield. This is a luxury cruise concept based upon an airship platform. This allows passengers to travel at high speed in luxury. It is also provide to guest with some of the most breathtaking views available. This airship is based on the technology currently being developed by Aeroscraft. This means it uses its engines as its primary source of lift, while using the Helium to simply offset to weight of the cargo.
