Emergency Sailboat / Sailboat

Emergency Sailboat
Emergency Sailboat

Sailboat is one of the transport tools in ocean travel and extreme sports. It is often capsized due to improper operation or encountering strong winds, causing casualties to people on board. The emergency sailboat redesigns the single-layer structure into a double inflatable structure. When the hull capsizes, the double tiled sailboat can quickly become into a simple inflatable hovercraft, allowing people on board have a temporary habitat. This greatly improves the chances of survival of people in distress.
