Imagine a sailing boat that overcomes all of the practical and technical challenges of hydrofoil sailing offshore. Here it is:

  • C-FLYDesigned for assured stability, speed, safety and high average speeds; our 8m LOA cruising 25-35kts. Proven.
  • C-FLYCan be sailed by amateurs and pros alike! Three controls only: tiller, main and jib sheets
  • C-FLYCannot pitch-pole capsize which is a fundamental prerequisite for offshore sailing.
  • C-FLYSails at speed in light airs – displacement mode with foils raised.
  • C-FLYThe foil system is speed unrestricted. The canard arrangement allows speeds 60+ knots on a powered craft.
  • C-FLYHas a unique safe operation mode for surviving excessive winds.

  • C-FLYThe foils look after themselves, leaving the crew to sail her at full throttle.
  • C-FLYBoth crew safe and boat uncompromised by an individual foil loss (proven!).
  • C-FLYBenefits from greatly reduced drag, providing (at least) a 10 knot advantage over existing craft
  • C-FLYVery smooth motion (or ride) providing much reduced fatigue of crew, equipment, rig and hulls.
