World's Fastest Ship Utilizes Boeing 747 Engines
The Incat shipyard, located in Australia has recently finished building what they call the world's fastest ship. Just because ships are bulky, doesn't mean they have to be slow. The Incat shipyard, located in Australia has recently finished building what they call the world's fastest ship. Named Francisco, two GE gas turbines rest on top of Boeing 747 engines, which power a set of water jets. The turbines produce a combined 59,000 horse power. They will turn a gearbox which drives an impeller. Those actions generate a water jet. A program manager with GE Power and Water stated "We had to redesign the fuel manifold and the fuel delivery system. But we have of a lot of experience in the marine environment. We've accumulated millions of hours powering ships, oil and gas rigs, and other equipment." Capable of traveling 67 miles per hour, it is classified as a passenger and vehicle ferry, able to carry up to 150 cars and 1,000 human passengers. There is also a duty-free store onboard the ship. Not only is the ship incredibly fast, it also uses liquefied natural gas as the primary fuel source making it environmentally friendly.
NORWEGIAN NAVY, world's fastest naval vessel
WATCH IN HD WORLD'S FASTEST NAVAL VESSEL Norwegian navy missile torpedo boat (MTB) or corveta's as they are really called, doing a drive by past one of the norwegian navy's coastguard vessels. The corveta skjold is capable of speeds over 60 knots (about 70mph) and is to this day the worlds fastes naval combat vessel. the ships can reach such big speeds by using there catamaran hulls to trap an air bubble underneath the vessel, hence avoiding most of the drag. These surface effect ships carry the same exact armament as the norwegian frigates (fridtjof nansen class) but do not have the same stamina.
