Axcell 650

 

This raffish-looking speedster was designed and pre-engineered using the latest in computerized 3-D modeling techniques. Note the “gills” at the stern—they feed air to the engine room as well as the HybridAir blowers.
 

The window-encompassed saloon offers 360-degree panoramic views. 

The master on the main deck has an en suite head.

There’s plenty of ambient light in the galley from saloon windows overhead.

 

At speed, the Axcell rides on a self-generated air cushion.

The helm station is quite conventional, despite the vessel’s high-tech propulsion system.
