I wonder where does a guy get funding for something like this?

How much?

And Why?

Actually....... I do not believe so.... (my beliefs do not match others beliefs) that it was built with private funding.

The cost were amazingly not that high.

I do not know the cost but I was in on the meeting of the initial discussion and the guy had investors from a large government supplier that were to contribute to the funding if certain matching funds were provided by the builder/designer.

The boat is ". . . an entirely different type of vessel that creates the minimum possible disruption of the waves. In other words, this vessel does not push, slap or pierce the waves but instead 'dances' with them. . . . The vessel has a pair of flexible hulls flexibly coupled to a 'cabin' between and above the hulls, thereby allowing the hulls to independently follow the surface of the water. Motor pods are hinged to the back of the hulls to maintain the propulsion system in the water. . . ."
