The "Flying Boat"

The "Flying Boat" is Brazilian-made experimental hydro-trike ultralight that can carry two people.

It is made up of a strong hang-glider assembled to a stainless steel structure which is attached to an inflatable boat with a fiberglass hull.

The Flying boat is designed to run an ultra light Rotax 2 cycle engine with several options (46HP, 64 HP) allows in-taker silencer and an extra muffler, reducing the noise.

A complete setup, including trailer, weighs only 280 kg (less than a jet ski).
Without the wing it becomes a fully functional boat.
