Planeadora fantasma (Ghost Glider)

Planeadora fantasma (Ghost Glider) is a term used for high speed narco boats in Spain. Planeadora can mean speedboat. The 'Ghost Glider' found on 27 August 2020 was the 3rd found in Spain and unique.
The craft sits between the go-fast vessel (GFV) category and low profile vessel (LPVs). It takes a power boat hull, adds a hard RIB collar and then a built-up covered superstructure. It is about 39 ft (12 meters) long and could possibly carry a few tons of cocaine.

All three craft have been discovered in Galicia in the North of Spain.
