Zero-emission, zero compromise.

The future of marine mass transit.


What are MobyFly's ESG standards?

At MobyFly, we believe that our business activities can positively impact society and the environment. We are committed to excellence in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices, encompassing all aspects of our operations and business strategy.


As a company aiming to accelerate the transition to zero-emission boats, we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. Our hydrofoil boats are designed to have a tiny environmental footprint per passenger — even smaller than an electric bicycle — and are powered entirely by renewable energy sources, minimizing our environmental impact on the planet.


Regarding social impact, we recognize the importance of creating sustainable transportation systems that benefit all of our customers and their communities. Our boats are designed to be comfortable and safe, allowing passengers to travel in style while reducing their carbon footprint.


In terms of governance, we are committed to transparent and responsible business practices. We regularly update our hardware and software to ensure our technology remains industry-leading. We work with specialized technology partners to ensure that our boats are cost-effective and a solid investment for the future.


At MobyFly, integrating ESG criteria into our business strategy is the right thing to do and the key to our success. We are committed to creating a better future for our clients, society, and the planet, and we are proud to be at the forefront of the zero-emission boat movement.

What makes MobyFly hydrofoil boats different?

MobyFly hydrofoil boats are fast and quiet, transporting 12 to 350 passengers comfortably above the waves at speeds over 70 km/h. Our boats are also extremely efficient, requiring up to 95% 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 to operate like an airplane wing. With enough speed, the foils create lift, raising the boat above the water’s surface.

What is the maximum passenger capacity?

MobyFly is currently working on three boat sizes:

  • a 30-meter boat with a maximum capacity of 350 passengers
  • a 20-meter boat with a maximum capacity of 60-120 passengers
  • a 10-meter boat with a maximum capacity of 12-20 passengers
