What makes MobyFly hydrofoil boats different?

MobyFly hydrofoil boats are fast and quiet, transporting 12 to 300 passengers comfortably above the waves at speeds in excess of 70 km/h. Our boats are also extremely efficient, requiring up to 70% less energy than current diesel ferries.

How do MobyFly boats ride above the water?

Our boats are equipped with foil technology and computer-controlled flight systems that work together allow the boat to operate in much the same way as an airplane wing. With enough speed the foils create lift, raising the boat above the surface of the water.

What is the maximum passenger capacity?

MobyFly is currently working on three boat sizes: a 30 meter boat with a maximum capacity of 300 passengers; an 18 meter boat with a maximum capacity of 59 passengers; and a 10 meter boat with a maximum capacity of 12 passengers.
