Combining a cutting-edge foiling design with the luxurious lines of a supercar, the the FUTUR-E is a yacht unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
With the reinvigorated look at foiling technology evident across the yachting industry, mostly because it its ability to reduce emmissions and fuel consumption, yacht companies have looked to designers to interprete foiling yachts in new and seductive ways. This has given birth to the FUTUR-E, a foiling sports car for superyachts.
Designed for three occupants, inclding the pilot, FUTUR-E combines technologies from the boating, automotive, racing, and aviation industries with a kinematic system that manages the movement of the yacht’s four foils to ensure a silky smooth ride no matter the conditions.
The yacht-car’s avant-garde design resembles a supercar (it looks like a classic DeLorean right?) and it’s into this sleek design that the foils are intergrated, limiting their clutter into the shape of its body. The foil profile also serves also as cradle to store FUTUR-E on land or on the deck of a superyacht.
The vessel comes in two power output options – outboards engines or inboard engine coupled with a surface propeller propulsion system – and can exceed 30 knots. As it builds up speed, FUTUR-E starts to life out of the water like an airplane on a runway; at 16 knots the Full Foiling Mode kicks in minimising drag and allowing for pin-point control.
In the cockpit, the dashboard is a combination of wrap-around screens that display all the navigation and motor data the pilot needs at a glance, while two sportscar-inspired seats allow a cosy environment for two guests at any one time.
