Overview

Viceroy is REGENT’s flagship seaglider, a 12 passenger vehicle that operates exclusively over water, traversing the sea in one of three modes: hull, hydrofoil, or flight in ground effect. Seagliders have 160 nautical mile range with existing battery technology (upgradeable to over 400 nautical mile range with next generation battery technology) and will enter service by 2025. Full-scale prototypes will begin sea trials by 2023.

Specifications and configuration are subject to change, images may not reflect the final vehicle design.

Exterior

Windows

Best-in-class windows enable unmatched viewing experience.  Admire upclose and personal views of the coast, watching the waves safely roll underneath the seaglider while you float on a cushion of air at 180 mph.

Hydrofoil

Hydrofoils enable smooth rides and high maneuverability in ports.  They are the key enabling difference between seagliders and past ground effect vehicles.  Seaglider hydrofoils retract after takeoff for near-water flight, and redeploy after landing to enable foiling into the terminal dock.

Electric Motors

Electric motors make the seaglider 30 decibels quieter than comparable payload aircraft or helicopters.  In addition, they drastically reduce maintenance cost and completely eliminate emissions from fuel-guzzling combustion engines.

Cargo Door

Large cargo door (6’5” height by 54” width, 1.95m height by 1.37m width) enables convenient cargo loading and makes the seaglider flexible for any mission.

Hull

Pointed, deep-V hull enables comfortable landings in multiple sea states. Seagliders can use a deep-V hull because they have hydrofoils for high-speed water transit, and therefore do not need a flat, uncomfortable planning hull.

Propellers

Distributed ‘blown wing’ propulsion enables low speed, maximum comfort, takeoff and landings.  Safety is enhanced with 8 redundant electric motors.

Nose

Onboard safety systems create comprehensive situational awareness for the seaglider captain ensuring the ability to remain clear of obstacles, detect traffic and separate from marine wildlife.
