The development is at the mockup model level – scale 1:2. The project will undergo changes in the direction of redesign of the overall structure and details, after which a basic functional prototype will be developed – scale 1:1. Will be used support structure (skeleton) covered by the base body (plastic, composite materials). A main hull is situated between the two boat shell parts, and on top of it two platform-pedals are tightly fixed. The pedals will not rotate, pressure will cause the movement of the water-pushing mechanism to be reproduced, located under the main hull. The principle of foot propulsion will be analogous to the fitness exercises with “stepper”. The development of the catamaran will also include an electric drive – electric motor with a propeller powered by batteries – “underwater thruster” or “azimuth thruster”. The direction of movement will be determined by the two keels, located at the rear of the boat shells. The movement of the keels will be accomplished by additional handles located on the tubular structure.
