This Hydrofoil Yacht is the product of our goal to improve our freeform surface design abilities.
Very few private foiling motorboats exist at the moment. Despite demonstrating significant advantages compared to boats with conventional hulls – for example their ability to travel almost twice as far with the same amount of fuel – their design fails to consider a significant factor: swell.
Current private foiling boats only work at waves no higher than 1.4 meters. Our solution makes use of control surfaces similar to the ones found on airplanes. They allow the on-board autopilot to control all 3 axes of movement: pitch, yaw and roll. This autopilot paired with the stereoscopic camera system – which scans the water surface – is able to move the boat along the height of any incoming waves with ease.
