Foiler The Flying Yacht Ready to Wow the French Riviera
Jun 28, 2018
UAE-based  ENATA  Marine,  world’s  first  production  foiling  yacht,  rocked  last  2018 Dubai International Boat Show with the world debut of its new FOILER yacht. Now FOILER is ready towow French Riviera. 
FOILER - the Flying Yacht - thanks to its revolutionary appeal and futuristic design will have apermanent berth at the Yacht Club de Monaco and in Saint Tropez - this summer, from mid July 2018 where it will be available for sea trials. Strictly upon advanced reservation, we’ll soon informyou about logistic details.

GREAT STEPS IN FOILING TECHNOLOGY
Delivering  a  smooth  and  exhilarating  ride  for  passengers,  FOILER  offers  a  comfortable  high-performance  driving  experience  for  whoever  is  at  the  helm.  Its  retractable  carbon  fiberhydrofoils deliver strength, rigidity and lightness, allowing the yacht to fly 1.5 meters above thewater for the most exciting and relaxing yachting experience.
Foiling technology  has  been  around  for  a  very  long  time  and  is  used mostly  in  sail boats  andkitesurfing, however Enata has made the first hydrofoil yacht which is easy for anyone to use andvery efficient. 
FOILER has a huge window of efficiency as it starts to foil at 12 knots and is completely out of thewater at 17 knotswith a maximum speed of 40 knots in flight mode. It is also incredibly easy to useand drive, just like a sports car: you just press a button for the foils to deploy and you can be onyour way. 
Handling  waves  up  to  2.5m  to  3m  in  foiling  mode  (conditions  with  5  to  6  Beaufort),  while  stillproviding complete comfort for up to 8 people, the FOILER can retract the foils and be used as aclassical boat in more extreme conditions.

ENATA EXPERTISE
“We are a family of sailors and kite-surfers and have started foiling in kite and catamaran sinceabout 10 years. We’re fully aware of all the benefits of foiling”stated Alois Vieujot – Manager atEnata. “This was a very natural step for Enata. We produce large competition and professionaldrones,  as  well  as racing  sailing  boats  and  kitefoils.  The  FOILER  is  really a  blend  of  all thosetechnologies.  To  start  this  project,  we  merged  our  R&D  with  the  Swiss  company  Hydros  thatalready produced a working FOILER prototype in 2015. The FOILER is the result of a long processthat combined all the skills of the company and I think we offer an outstanding product that is bothdelivering outstanding comfort and performance whilst being very easy to use.“
The  shape  of  the  foils  –  as  well  -  are  different  than  before,  thanks  to  new  advancements  intechnology.  New  Enata  R&D  technologies  have  helped  develop  a  better  foil  that  is  both  veryperforming, comfortable, and auto stable.
The foils are fully retractable. With our patented system, the FOILER switches from foiling mode toArchimedean  mode  in  a  few  seconds.  When  moored  or  at  the  harbour,  the  foils  and  electrictorpedoes - which propel the boat - are entirely out of the water. That way they stay dry and clean,thereby reducing the maintenance. 
The  hull of  the FOILER  has  also a  very elaborate  design to  provide  very smooth  take-off  andlanding phases, even in the waves.

COMFORT, SAFETY, AND ENVIRONMENTAL PRESERVATION
The FOILER brings different advantages such as comfort and safety - thanks to the hydrofoils theyacht is above the ocean and not affected by the waves, completely steady even in bad weather.Since its not jumping around, it’s a lot safer than a regular yacht. It’s also a lot easier to drive andthe steering is extremely directional without and lag.
The FOILER really brings a lot of advantages also when it comes to the environment.The first oneis the fuel consumption. Due to it being lifted in the air, there is much less drag, thus a lot less fuelneeds to be used to move the FOILER. On top of that, it uses a hybrid propulsion system. Twodiesel engines power a large battery, that then feeds the electric torpedoes (propellers). 
All of this combined makes the FOILER about 20% to 50% more fuel efficient than other yachts.You can even go completely silent in full electric mode at 10 knots for up to 10min, and get a largerrange at lower speeds, which is very pleasant for port maneuvers or for fishing/trawling.
Another great advantage is the elimination of the wake behind the FOILER. Due to it not moving asmuch water, it barely produces a wake. This means it doesn’t bother anyone around it, and hasway less impact on the environment.
Finally, due to the hybrid system and it being above the water, it generates very little noise. Verylow engine noise and no noise from the waves hitting the hull. It is extremely quiet. All of thiscombined means that everyone/everything around you won’t even know you just passed by flyingat 40 knots!
“The  best  word  to  describe  driving  the  FOILER  is  tranquility”  -continues  Alois  Vieujot  -  “It  itsextremely relaxing and easy to use. You don’t have any movement form the waves underneath asyou are above them. It is extremely stable and safe, like a flying carpet over the ocean. It alsoeliminates sea sickness. The feeling is total comfort and tranquility. Going back on a regular motorboat really feels like going back in time”.

INNOVATIVE FUTURE AT ENATA MARINE
Enata Marine has a very large variety of projects. From boats and yachts, kite-foils, to planes andarchitecture, and constantly growing. They specialize in innovation, high performance, compositeproducts, and have had projects such as the GTCat, Multi50, and the SR71 Blackbird. GtCat beinga catamaran fully out of carbon fiber which uses large curved foils. The Multi50 is a trimaran, whichwill compete on the Transatlantic race La Route du Rhum. And thirdly, the SR71 Blackbird is alarge 4 meter remote control carbon fiber plane that just won the world competition at TopGun.
