Forged in the depths of innovation, from a blend of technology, style and speed, comes the Hydrafoil, a luxurious, high speed electric hydrofoil created to usher in a new era in seafaring.

This instant icon has been designed to be at the peak of marine technology with a steerable front foil, allowing three degrees of freedom that can make adjustments 32 times per second for the ultimate amount of control at high speed.

The design features sleek automotive styling both on the exterior and on the interior with full wrap-around limousine seats, multiple infotainment displays and even bespoke baggage for longer adventures.

The pilot house features an unbroken, state-of-the-art, 30 inch curved display screen from Yacht Defined. This provides a huge display surface that collects all the essential information from the yacht presented with beautiful graphics with a simple jog wheel control system to make it easy to navigate the information even at high speeds.

The drivetrain is a single 100hp electric motor running on a series of lithium ion batteries. Once the foil has lifted the yacht clear of the water, it can go on to reach a stable top speed of 40 knots. The low resistance made possible by the foil means that the yacht has a range of 45 miles on a single charge. Twin 50 amp charging cables allow it to be fully recharged within 5 hours.

The entire hull is constructed from a combination of carbon fiber and kevlar composite to give a high strength, lightweight construction that can withstand the rigours required for high speed performance.
