Amazing video of the boat that could break the 50 knot barrier

Is this the boat that will break the mythical 50 knot barrier?

L’Hydroptere, skippered by Alain Thébault, has already reached 47.2 knots (average speed over 500m).

Design modifications, including a new rudder, are currently underway in the hope that she can beat the current speed record of 48.7 knots.

There isn’t a faster yacht on the planet.
