iFLY

iFLY15 is the series-produced flying catamaran for sailors who love high-speed sailing while having understood that it is important to stay in control of the boat.

iFLY stands for uniqueness in design and function. It’s superior Flysafe® active foil control system autonomously supports the stable horizontal flight position in the longitudinal and lateral direction. The 4 T-Foils do not have to be operated by the sailor during sailing. When it comes to foiling stability 4 foils are far better than 2 or 3. If you live in an area with shifty winds, light winds, or high winds Flysafe® foiling control system allows you to foil in such conditions.

Average skilled dinghy or catamaran sailors with some trapeze experience can safely foil with the iFLY15 after only a few hours.

Quick access – immediate sensation of success – steep learning curve.

In the hand of an experienced sailor iFLY15 offers a whole new sailing experience with previously not experienced speeds and agile maneuverability.

The flight control system, combined with numerous fine-tuned innovations, ensures safe foiling even in strong winds and rough seas.

Stable flight attitude allows pushing hard, so in good conditions, iFLY reaches high boat speed beyond 30 knots in a controllable way.

IFLY15 offers freedom to fly alone or in pairs. Due to the exclusive use of high-tech materials, iFLY15 is extremely rigid and weighs less than 198.4 lbs/90 kilos ready to sail (depending on mast material). With its low weight and its state of the art hydrofoils, it is airborne in winds as low as 6 Knots/2Bft.

iFLY15 has a length of only 15 feet, is easy to transport, quick to get ready to sail and can be easily slipped from the beach using a conventional beach trolley. Having more hull length is a waste when the goal is to primarily foil.

Its sophisticated design reflects the highest demands on quality and function.

PRICE is approximately $37,000 with shipping. This boat is more like an airplane than a low cost small sailboat, thus the price. The boat is made of carbon fiber, the foils are carbon fiber with titanium parts, and the FlySafe flight control system is on par with airplane technology. There is about a 6 to 10 month delivery time frame from point of payment. To get ones boat reserved one must pay a non-refundable deposit. Be advised we pick up our multi boat shipment on the US east coast in spring, which could extend the waiting period depending on when you paid your deposit.
