Yes, trials over, now the owner needs to learn to sail her, she is foil assist -not fully foiling. The chines and transom are supposed to stay leaned on and there are trim tabs aft to control fore and aft pitch. Be careful where those blades are when you come alongside in your rubber ducky.

Sound track will give you a headache.

Imoca style foils would maybe betterer.

 

 

The sail plan looks very cool, but I don't think excavator style hydraulic rams on the outside of the hull is really sailing. You could put a steel bucket on the foil and dredge out the marina channel.

Yeah dunno if you want to do ass dragging and porpoising in a 111 ft cruiser ?  You’d have a massive interior tidy up to do when you got to your destination .

its tempting to knock it for many reasons but give it a chance, who knows it might be a game changer? One thing for sure its not a foiler as we know it, more of a DSS design. Its not going to be that great in a raft up :)
