CaptureWho is James Beyor?

James has lived on Swans Island off the coast of Maine for 28 years and has witnessed a 70% increase in the ferry fee due to increased fuel costs.  He talks to commercial lobstermen daily who struggle with excessive fuel and maintenance costs limiting their ability to make a living. James also lived on a boat moored off the Florida Keys and experienced first-hand the extensive costs of operating and maintaining a recreational boat with a propeller, which is universally acknowledged to be extremely inefficient. James was moved to design and build an affordable, fuel efficient, environmentally friendly alternative to propeller based marine drive systems.  The Vortex SeaDrive is that system.  It changes the way we move through the water.

James has a proven track record of dreaming big and following through. He has been featured in architectural magazines, books and on the television series This Old House for a project that he dedicated himself to for 28 years, building his home in Maine, a replica of Kragsyde, a world renowned, Peabody & Stearns architectural shingle style masterpiece with 23 rooms and 13 fireplaces.

He is a helicopter and airplane pilot, a skilled design engineer and has authored and published two books on futuristic thinking. James is also a surreal artist and has sold many of his original art pieces.

The Vortex SeaDrive is his current project and he is fully dedicated to see it to completion and commercial distribution.
