  • The Forgotten History of the Hydrofoil

    By: Richard Crowder Canada was the preeminent developer of the hydrofoil design before its latest revival After reading an article in Scientific American, Bell started his own research into hydrofoils in the In recognition of Bell’s earlier work on hydrofoils, It was named the Bras d’Or. Some also jumped to de Havilland Aircraft and contributed to the Bras d’Or hydrofoil design. Now back to hydrofoils.

  • We Have Hydrofoil Jet Skis Now

    We've said before that the hydrofoil is the design that just won't go away. But no one had tried to put a hydrofoil on a PWC. Until now. The Valo Hyperfoil is an electric hydrofoiling PWC that is obviously unlike any personal watercraft on that hydrofoil boat manufacturers have been trying to master for decades. Those are decent figures for an electric PWC, and the carbon fiber hydrofoils are the key.

  • Are We Finally Ready for the Hydrofoil Pleasure Boat Era?

    That was part of the thinking behind the development of hydrofoils. The hydrofoil concept has slowly expanded ever since. There are two general classifications for hydrofoils. Hydrofoil boats are known for speed. Hydrofoil kiteboards" and "Hydrofoil windsurfers" have also added a new dimension to kiteboarding and

  • The 'Flying' Carbon Fiber Boat that Might Finally Make the Hydrofoil Go Mainstream

    We've covered the hydrofoil ad nauseum. But try as you might, the hydrofoil design is more persistent than a honey badger. The hydrofoil dates all the way back to about 1908 when Sir Alexander Graham Bell started tinkering with the prospect of a hydrofoiling boat. It's gaining steam once again, this time in the form of high-end luxury hydrofoiling dayboats.

  • Supercar Blondie Test Drives $1 Million 'Flying Yacht'

    The Foiler, as the name would suggest, is a technologically advanced hydrofoil that uses a complex system of foils to allow users to switch between conventional cruising and hydrofoiling above the water. As a hydrofoil the boat is 40% more efficient than a conventional hull, although that efficiency is likely Those are reasonable numbers, especially considering designs like the Candela C7 are using a similar hydrofoil While underway in full hydrofoil she boasts a lofty beam of 7.2 m (24 ft) compared to an overall length
