Aeronamics originates in the desire to make the hydrofoiling experience available to a large group of sailing enthusiasts. The Aeronamics Flo1 will make desire reality soon.

Concept

The decision to design and build a was made when Aeronamics founder Jurian Rademaker noticed that among sailors in his network, there is a demand for an easy way to experience foiling

. “We asked our sailing friends how they like to sail a hydrofoiler and what is important to them. Simplicity, durability and speed were the answers we received.”


And so a boat was designed around those criteria.

Boat tech details

The Flo1 is now in its final testing phase and is soon production-ready. It is a 4.25 m hydrofoiling sailing dinghy. In experienced hands the boat will be able to reach speeds of over 20 knots. However, the goal of the boat is not speed but easy foiling, which is possible thanks to its self-stabilizing character. In windspeeds of 6-8 knots the boat will take off and sail on her foils. Thanks to the integrated DSS system, the boat is manageable for the club sailor.

DSS

The first two prototypes were fast, but did not comply with the goal of making foiling available to a larger group of sailors. To achieve this, Aeronamics teamed up with naval architect Hugh Welbourn, the creator of the patented Dynamic Stability Systems (DSS). DSS-technology makes a boat sail extremely stably. The technology has previously proven its value in designs of Infiniti Yachts and Quant Boats. After initial contact with Welbourn, the third and last prototype was equipped with DSS foils. The technology appeared to be the perfect fit for the boat, because of its natural foiling balance without active controls.

Aeronamics will start production in Q1 of 2017. Build slots can be reserved on the company website. Training, a mobile tuning app and a ’how-to-manual’ are part of the package.
