At MobyFly, we truly believe that our business activities can have a positive impact on 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 that of an electric bicycle — and are powered entirely by renewable energy sources, minimizing our environmental impact on the planet.
In terms of 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 that our technology remains industry-leading, and we work with specialized technology partners to ensure that our boats are not only cost effective, but also a solid investment for the future.
At MobyFly, it is our belief that integrating ESG criteria into our business strategy is not only the right thing to do, but also 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.
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.
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.
MobyFly is currently working on three boat sizes: a 30 meter boat with a maximum capacity of 300 passengers; an 20 meter boat with a maximum capacity of 60-120 passengers; and a 10 meter boat with a maximum capacity of 12-20 passengers.

Anders Bringdal is at the heart of MobyFly’s technological vision. A five-time windsurf world champion and co-founder of SeaBubbles, he has already demonstrated the potential for zero-emission hydrofoil passenger boats. Anders is leading the development of new foil technology and propulsion systems — powered by either hydrogen or lithium-ion batteries — to deliver on the promise of fast, clean, and sustainable mass transportation.
Ricardo Bencatel has a PhD in electrical and computer engineering. He has worked on automatic foil control systems for competition sailboats for two America’s Cup teams (Luna Rossa and Oracle Team USA), as well as foil control systems for SeaBubbles and others. Ricardo’s areas of expertise are flight control systems and vehicle systems engineering.
