Boundary Layer Technologies

Boundary Layer Technologies is building small, fast hydrofoil cargo ships.

Boundary Layer Technologies is a start-up that is building high speed container ships using hydrofoil technology. This technology allows their container ships to generate lift, propel the hull of the vessel out of the water and reduces drag. This enables the logistic industries to deliver ocean freight at a faster rate. By offering an on-water speed of 2x that of normal ships, direct routing and daily services, their ships will be the successor to expensive and polluting airfreight.
