mathis ruhl designs a self-sufficient vessel that runs on wind power

sea and wind are intimately associated, essentially in the yachting spectrum. a ship has to deal with these elements and it can be the plaything of their power, but also can take benefit from their energy. ancient civilizations were smart enough to achieve this balance. through his design, mathis ruhl encourages naval design to be smart again and imagine how to improve the efficiency of a sailing ship with today’s technology.
