The foiler for you!

SOLO, WITH YOUR FAMILY OR BETWEEN REGATTAS, UFO ADAPTS TO YOUR DESIRES.

UFO is a “foiler” of simple and modern design, based on the latest technological advances in foils. It allows you to discover the pleasure of flying on the water in complete safety.

The “T” foil system, tested and refined for decades in the International Moth class, coupled with a tunnel-shaped catamaran hull, allows UFO to offer new sensations in the air.. All without the complexity, fragility or cost of today’s hydrofoil boats.

More stable than a Moth International, with an innovative platform and a set of fully retractable foils, UFO is the simplest and most affordable foiler ever designed.

Built in the United States in series and with rigorous quality control, UFO Foiler develops a philosophy of one-design, creating exciting regattas.

THE ONE DESIGN FOILER AT THE BEST PRICE

Questions?

THE BEST ANSWER IS TO TRY IT ON. 

Who can fly the UFO?

Pretty much anyone!

Since the beginning UFO pilots have been aged between 9 and 64 years for a weight ranging from 40 to 110kg.

The UFO is designed for the greatest number. Why bother creating a boat that is too demanding? It is a mistake to design a boat for a limited number of users, when the objective of one-design boats is to gather large fleets of sailors.

The UFO also allows two people to sail together within a weight limit of 155kg, in these conditions it will take at least 10 knots to take off.

What are the weather conditions?

The UFO sails in almost all wind conditions.

Although an experienced skipper can sometimes take off in light winds, the baseline for reliable flight is about eight knots.

The upper wind limit is more a matter of taste and skill. The UFOs have been sailing at 30 knots, but it’s not a relaxing time.

Most sea and wave conditions are not a problem. Lowering the flight height helps the UFO to fly smoothly through the bottom of the waves without desalting. Rolling seas are even less of a problem because the UFO will follow the swell. An extremely tight, high swell can be very annoying in flight, as with all foilers.

Will I fly the first time?

Most people succeed.

But conditions, configuration and technique matter and if you use it incorrectly you will get a number of incorrect results.
The UFO is designed to be very forgiving in terms of tuning and technique, so it probably gives you a better chance of flying than anything else out there.

However the boat isn’t everything, as the skipper, you have a major role to play …

IS IT EASY TO GREASE THE UFO?

Very easy!

The current speed record between taking the boat out of the car and putting it in the water is about 15 minutes.

Assemble the parts of the mast. Attach the spreaders insert the mast into the platform.
Turn the boat on its side, insert the foils.
Flatten the boat, set the sail and go sailing.

How's the departure going?

Roll the boat into the water.
Take the cart out from under the boat and leave it on the beach.
Climb on the UFO, lower the rudder 15cm and navigate in deep water.

Lower the foils and fly away!

Can we transport and store UFO

Yes, of course! The UFO adapts to your lifestyle.

With this reduced weight, the boat is very easy to put over a car, and its flat bottoms allow it to be attached without damage. The other components of the boat fit easily into a standard car.

To store it is as you want: behind sofas, under beds, in basements, inside larger boats, chained to emergency exits, hanging in garages…
