The airship consisted of several lift-balloons, filled with lighter-than-air gases that are metabolized in a self-contained organic engine. The hull of the craft was equipped with long runners for sea-skimming. For short trips, the craft never left the surface of the sea, sliding from place to place, powered by twin propellers. Longer trips required a full inflation of the lift-balloons. A vert'bo airship could reach an altitude of five kilometers without repulsorlifts.
Traditionally, vert'bo airships were not armed, but on particularly dangerous routes, they could be fitted with mounted blaster cannons.
