The UFO workshop
AN INNOVATIVE CONCEPT PRODUCED BY EXPERT HANDS
Of course, we are certain that we have designed a superb accessible boat, perfectly fulfilling its specifications: to democratize access to the foil for everyone.
Our prices are low only thanks to the elimination of middlemen. We don’t do magic or cheating. We simply dispense with the services of distributors and resellers and carry them out ourselves. UFO Foiler is not a low cost foiler, we simply have a modern margin structure and economical operation.
Advise you directly, deliver you, and ensure impeccable service. This is where UFO Foiler proves that its organization is economical and efficient.
Because we are the experts of our products, nobody can advise you better than us. And because we are confident and transparent, we provide you with free and uncensored forums and social networks to express yourself. This way you have the advice and opinions of all users, without marketing filters.
Because we are experts in logistics, we ensure worldwide delivery of your foiler in good condition and without a hitch. We manage!
And because we’re all “sailors” like you, we want the best possible service. Listening to you is the basis of our business and then proposing the best solutions. At UFO Foiler, you have at UFO Foiler interlocutors whom you call by their first name and who will give everything to allow you to live your passion as well as possible.
But despite everything we can say and as we might not be objective… better let the professionals analyze our new foiler.
Perhaps the most exciting innovation in single-handed sailing since, well, since the first Foil Moth….
What makes this boat so cool is how easy it is at sea and on land. It’s innovative, creative and inexpensive.
Elected best boat 2018 by Sail Magazine in the under 30-foot boat category, UFO is a real innovation.
Fulcrum Speedworks is a medium-sized, advanced shipyard located in Bristol, Rhode Island, USA. It was founded solely to build UFOs, with the ambition of democratizing foil and making it accessible to all.
Fulcrum Speedworks is a young company, but its roots are old. The boat was designed and developed by Steve CLARK, President of Vanguard Sailboats 1987-2007, and his son Dave CLARK, President of Fulcrum Speedworks. Since its inception, Fulcrum has built a production team around yachting industry veterans who have spent decades building high-performance boats.
The team’s experience is an invaluable asset at all levels of UFO manufacturing, enabling Fulcrum to manufacture UFOs in their entirety at its Bristol plant.
Fulcrum is a forward-looking company with a focus on continuous improvement. Making slight improvements in what we do every day is what drives our entire team forward. You only have to look at our track record at the end of 2017 to see how much we have improved during the production of hundreds of UFOs.
The business model
In the team we have more than 200 years of experience in shipbuilding and product development! Then, in conscience, we had to get out of the classical marketing system and establish a direct relationship from the producer to the consumer.
The first reason is that nobody talks as much about their products as the person who imagined them. Giving you access to full and sound information is a priority.
The second is that we want a close relationship. How to be closer to so many people than by being available in two clicks on their mobile in their pocket! This almost intimate relationship allows for rich exchanges, informed choices, and a positive relationship.
The third is that we didn’t want to leave you on the beach for lack of money. Of course, making a foiler has a cost, but by reinventing the selling method, we could lower the prices significantly without cutting back on quality.
Safety, quality and price (in that order) are the three priorities of our continuous improvement with one goal in mind:
- Improving the quality of life and work of our employees
- Free up time and resources to increase manufacturing quality
- Controlling costs to deliver maximum value to our customers

Preserving our environment is a priority. We are passionate about nature and the ocean.
Yet it is obvious that our activity contributes to the destruction of the planet. Despite this, we are doing everything possible to reduce this footprint.
We integrate the management of our impact on the planet into our development and manufacturing process. Our team aims to reduce this impact by using the solutions available or by inventing them:
- Packaging 95% recyclable and plastic-free.
- Systematic sorting and recycling of all our waste.
- Production with the most resistant and durable technologies.
- Reduction of dust and scrap in the factory.
Ecology is a subject of great concern, for which there is no perfect answer, except to want to be better every day. This is why we integrate this essential data into our continuous improvement processes.
Reduce and reuse
From this perspective of improvement and respect for the environment, there are our small daily gestures, but there are also giant steps forward thanks to innovation.
We have reduced disposable consumables used in the infusion process by 90% by replacing them with reusable silicone bags.
The new system has significantly reduced the ecological footprint of the UFO construction process, making it one of the greenest sailing yachts in the world.
We are happy and proud to be able to count on an extremely competent team that has enabled us to develop this new approach. We prefer to strengthen our skills, use our innovations and assert our ability to do things right, rather than spending money unnecessarily on materials that pollute our playing field.
