wFoil Albatross, A ‘Flying’ Boat

wFoil Albatross, A ‘Flying’ Boat

Published: May 2, 2013 | By: American Luxury Staff

The wFoil Albatross, created by pilot and flying instructor Tomaz Zore, is a boat that ‘flies’ across the water by using hydrofoils. It can reach speeds of up to 90mph. Zore refers to this type of sailing/flying hybrid as foiling, and is advocating for the creation of a whole new category of sailing.

The engine can be replaced with a sail for a more traditional sailing experience. Zore is looking for investors in order to produce the first 12 wFoil Albatross boats. Annual production will not surpass 20 vessels per year.
