JOHN STORM FRANCHISE - A - Z
The Elizabeth Swann cruising along the Amazon to Manaus
The 'Elizabeth Swann' is a solar assisted, hydrogen powered ship that is thought to be the fastest in the world, and the most advanced technologically. She was inspired by the character, Elizabeth Swann, in the Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean movies, (played by Keira Knightley). Though, we know of a lady of the same name who lives in England.
The Swann is equipped with a stunning array of ocean instruments, that makes her invaluable for underwater surveys and other surface marine tasks, under the command of her rugged ocean conservationist captain: John Storm. A man of many talents, who becomes physically and mentally enhanced during his adventures.
The Elizabeth Swann is autonomously piloted by Captain Nemo, named after the Captain of the Nautilus in Jules Verne's classic: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. A stand alone unmanned navigation system. The ship is monitored by an artificially intelligent (AI) computer named Hal, after Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke's character in 2001: Space Oddysey.
The ship is a real trimaran design study, with quotes for build in high grade 5083 marine alloy and other high strength materials, to include electric pod thrusters, solar wings that track the sun, and a fuel cell system to utilize hydrogen in many forms, to generate electricity for her submerged drives. The ship is Plastic-Free.
