Looks like an EA71 or EA81 engine. I think one of those would be really fun...if I had the money.

The Russians built some REALLY big ones as troop transports, and concept plans include ocean liner sized versions to replace surface ships for high priority container shipping.

I told my wife that if we ver end up living on Puget Sound (we just bought a place in Port Ludlow) that I am going to build one to commute instead of a boat or airplane.

The interesting thing is that they are registered as vessels, not aircraft, so you don't need a pilots license. They fly in ground effect (which equals one-half the total wing span), so if you want more height and speed you build a longer wing instead of adding horsepower.

Can't you just see blowing past the ferry in one of these going a hundred miles an hour ... YeeeeHaw!

I saw a show on hovercrafts a few years ago, and that one has MASSIVE gas turbine engines. Even though it's not Suby-powered, it's freakin' sweet!
