Smooth Sail­ing

When the sea gets rough, eat saltines to set­tle your stom­ach, or so the old salts say. Bet­ter still, step aboard the Foiler from Enata Marine, a 9.5-me­tre hy­dro­foil that cuts through choppy wa­ter by skim­ming 1.5 me­tres above it at 40 knots (74km/h). This fly­ing su­pery­acht is an­chored by four foils that keep her ex­tremely stable and re­sis­tant to wave in­ter­fer­ence. Propul­sion comes from two 320HP BMW en­gines hooked up to two gen­er­a­tors and two elec­tric mo­tors. At cruis­ing speed, the ves­sel’s 300-litre fuel tank gives her a range of 240 kilo­me­tres. The re­tractable foils are strong enough to sup­port the weight of eight pas­sen­gers in the boat as she flies above the wa­ter’s sur­face.With her sleek style and cut­ting-edge hull de­sign, you don’t need to be an old salt to know she’s go­ing to turn heads wher­ever she goes.
