The Kormaran is many boats in one.
It’s a runabout; it’s a catamaran; it’s a trimaran. The Kormaran (kormaran.com) is all of those and more. The 23-foot vessel can transform into six different configurations at the push of a button. It was developed and built in Austria and was expected to make its official debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September. In hydrofoil form, it can reach a top speed of 38 knots and travel for 108 nautical miles without refueling. The Kormaran also has a more leisurely side: It can morph into an 11-foot-wide teak sundeck. The boat, which is made from carbon fiber, titanium, and stainless steel, is priced at about $1.5 million.
