A Personal Yacht That Flies Over the Water

With 100% Head-Turning Potential

By Hadley Tomicki ·

“That flying yacht person.”

It certainly wouldn’t be your first choice for a nickname.

But in time, you’ll learn to live with it.

After all, one does tend to stick out a little when flying a boat around the city.

We’re talking about Foiler, an over-the-top yacht that can actually achieve liftoff, now available for your holiday gift list.

This is like the sea-based version of one of those three-wheeled motorcycles catching your eye on the highway. A weird-looking machine of exacting standards that will really stand out among everyone else’s Bond-esque toys. Also, again, it’s a flying yacht.

One that looks like a seaplane with the top chopped off. And once you hit 40 knots with the V8 engines, you can achieve liftoff, the full carbon fiber hull of the boat rising 1.5 meters off the water’s surface as you stay safely suspended on large hydrofoils. 

At which point your date will probably squeeze you tighter while traditionalists in non-flying yachts exclaim, “Why, I never.”

There are currently five versions available, including the spacious Azure for families and the Royale with a double cockpit seat for your favorite skipper. There’s also a custom frame you can build out to your own specifications.

So go ahead and get that rear spoiler now.
