Forget traveling over bumpy waves — travel through them in the Multimarine Composites VSV MarySlim (£1.5 million, $2.14 million). This unique craft is designed to pierce the waves, even submarining at times, letting it handle seas no other boat would dare tackle. Other features include a top speed of 38 knots, a range of 1800 miles, and a KiteShip kite as an auxiliary power system. [via; Thanks, Bob]
Tow both your camp and your gear with the Airstream Panamerica ($TBA). The rear 11 feet of this 34-foot trailer is configured as a garage, with enough room to haul two motorcycles, ATVs, or other gear, as well as storage, power outlets, and work areas. In true Airstream fashion, the main cabin features plenty of living space, a double bed, and a modern interior — complete with stainless steel appliances — that will have you wanting to stay on the road.
Think flying cars are the wave of the future? Then you might want to check out the Aerocar ($3.5 million), a hybrid car/plane from 1956(!). With a serial number of 2, this unique ride was granted its first FAA certification in December of '56, with an informal inspection performed in 2006. Beyond the fact that it flies (sorta; it needs reconditioning to be flight-ready), the Aerocar was also ahead of its time with its small, two-seat build and streamlined rear. [Thanks, Chad]
For those who don't need a full blown snowmobile, this Gas Powered Snowboard ($2,000) might be a nice, unnecessary alternative. Powered by a 6.5-hp 4-cycle gas engine, this yellow snow scooter jets you around any type of snow and can accommodate riders up to 250 lbs. It's got a max speed of 18 mph and can go for two hours straight on only 3/4-gallon of gas.
If you happen to live where it snows a lot during the winter, do yourself a favor, ditch the car/truck, and do your commuting on the Arctic Cat Z1 Turbo Sno Pro ($13,300). This snow-bound beast boasts a 4-stroke, 1056cc twin-cylinder engine pumping out 177 hp, Fox Float ski shocks, a two-inch rear suspension shock, a 128" Cobra track, hydraulic disc brakes, and more.
