The Quadrofoil Electric-Powered Boat Makes for Smooth Sailing

The Quadrofoil electric-powered boat is a high-speed, emission-free option for the water sport enthusiast looking to reduce their carbon footprint while also having a good time.

Due to the lack of a traditional motor, the boat makes for a completely silent ride so as to not detract from the experience of sailing along the open seas. The unique cut-out side panels on each side of the vessel allow for a unique sailing venture as there is little separating the riders from the water beneath them.

The four, leg-like pieces on the water craft also improve rider comfort in this two seater. Due to the unique curvature of these panels, the vessel itself floats slightly above the water surface which eliminates bumps and jarring from waves below and gives its occupants the feeling that they are flying over the water.
