Our foils work 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, significantly reducing drag and allowing the boat to travel at high speed without creating waves, and using far less energy than a conventional ferry.
MobyFly’s foils utilize computer-controlled flight systems that are at the leading edge of this technology and race tested in extreme real-world conditions.
MobyFly’s first two boats (10m and 18m) will be powered by rechargeable electric batteries with proven reliability.
Our design team is already working on feasibility studies into the use of fuel cells and hydrogen to increase the range of our boats.
Our boats are designed for optimum efficiency through the use of light composites which reduce weight and are shaped to limit drag.
