By now it is a known fact: the deployment of foils, hydrofoils or immersed wings is currently revolutionizing the sailing yachts’ world and more generally small sailing craft as well. We’re not just talking about foils that allow boats to rise off the water and to ‘fly’, much in the same way as competition models taking part in America’s Cup races and more. We’re talking about those foils that are ‘hidden’ below the water and change performance notably while avoiding the dangers related to ‘flying’!

The forecast was calling for around 30 knots of SW wind for this year’s race, making it a downwind run in the dark followed by an upwind slog back to Sydney and finishing around the middle of the next day.

Infiniti Yachts

43-metre sailing yacht Canova built by Baltic Yachts is the first superyacht to be powered by a foil. She was commissioned by an experienced owner who desired above all optimum seagoing comfort.

Dynamic Stability Systems by @Infiniti Yachts partnered with Farr Yacht Design and @Lucio Micheletti to create the ultimate blue-water sailing yacht.

The DSS foil creates Righting Moment (power/stability) in the same way more crew sitting on the side of the yacht does or canting the keel or adding water ballast. This can be thought of as power.

The combination of increased power, reduced drag and significantly less heeling (as much as 30%) and pitching (as much as 42% less) produces a fast, easy to sail yacht with more comfort.

The owner selected the DSS foil on the basis of performance, reliability and comfort.

Infiniti Yachts

The team at Infiniti Yachts successfully fitted the first DSS into a superyacht, the Baltic 142 Canova.

Here she is on sea trials and demonstrating the increased comfort onboard.

The DSS, a transverse, 29ft 6in (9m) long, sliding foil is built discreetly into the yacht just below the waterline.

The foil is dynamic so as the speed increases the heel angle of the yacht reduces, as demonstrated in this short film.
