Slide 5: 

Car-Passenger Ferries A form of transport, usually a boat or ship, used to carry (or ferry) passengers and their vehicles across a body of water. Also used to transport freight.

Hovercrafts A hovercraft, or air-cushion vehicle (ACV), is an amphibian craft, designed to travel over any smooth surface supported by a cushion of slow moving, high-pressure air, ejected downwards against the surface below, and contained within a "skirt."

Slide 8: 

A boat with wing-like foils mounted on struts below the hull. As the craft increases its speed the hydrofoils develop enough lift for the boat to become foil-borne - i.e. to raise the hull up and out of the water. This results in a great reduction in drag and a corresponding increase in speed.

Jetfoils A Jetfoil is a passenger-carrying waterjet-propelled hydrofoil design by Boeing.
