Seagliders wing-in-ground-effect vehicles for coastal transportation to safely carriage passengers by 2025, in high-speed, and zero-emission.
Regent is developing and manufacturing all-electric, passenger-carrying, wing-in-ground-effect vehicles to service coastal routes, drastically decreasing fuel costs, and maintenance.
Viceroy is Regent’s flagship Seaglider, a 12-passenger vehicle operating exclusively over water, traversing the sea in one of three modes: hull, hydrofoil, or flight-in-ground-effect.
Seagliders have a 160 nautical mile range with existing battery technology (upgradeable to over 400 nautical mile range with next-generation battery technology).
