Rate of Climb:
The long aspect ratio wings used during takeoff and landing gives the Genesis excellent rate of climb (ROC). In addition, the absence of asymmetric thrust and asymmetric drag with one engine inoperative gives unparalleled ROC in this situation.
Stall Speed and Takeoff Distance:
Generous wing area and span give the Genesis a wide margin of safety in takeoff configurations. Since the kinetic energy that must be dissipated during the landing is proportional to the landing speed squared, then the low stall speed greatly shortens the runway (and waterway) length requirements.
The projected cost of the Genesis is attractively low. Without the need for turboprop or geared engines, the major contributor to the selling price (the engines) can be kept low. And in the case of twin engine aircraft this can save up to half of the cost of the airplane.
The internal mounting of the engines helps raise the strength and lower the cost of this design over the typical amphibious aircraft.
The greatest cost savings come from the modular fuselage design. Different engine sizes and weights offset different fuselage lengths, so all versions of the airplane use nearly all the same components. The manufacturing cost "learning curve" should level off early and at a low level.
