Valo Hyperfoil is a new generation hydrofoil jet ski! Interparus shares the first details about a new type of sea toys.
A new round of hydrofoil development
Today, foilers are experiencing their second renaissance. Every month a couple of new hydrofoil concepts appear, and it’s hard to imagine races and regattas without futuristic boats hovering above the water. It would be strange if foil technology were not used in more familiar devices and water toys.
And so it was the turn of the jet skis. Boundary Layer Technologies decided that it was time to create something truly interesting - the result of their work was a jet ski (or hydrofoiler?) called Valo Hyperfoil.
The company's engineers focused on the design of old foil ships from the last century and added modern design solutions. As a result, Valo Hyperfoil incorporates all the best qualities of foilers. The new jet ski is made of carbon, titanium and stainless steel. Although from the outside it looks like the most ordinary jet ski, but once it “soars” above the surface of the water, the difference becomes obvious.
Features Valo Hyperfoil
As already mentioned, carbon, titanium and stainless steel were used to create the jet ski to increase the strength and durability of the hull compared to conventional jet skis. The reinforced body is necessary due to the fact that when the Valo Hyperfoil rises on its “wings”, the pressure created by the human body on the body changes and is no longer uniform.
In total, the jet ski has three carbon fiber wings, which are located at the front and rear. Interestingly, the rear wings (or wing - depending on the configuration) are connected to a 45 kW electric drive system. Thanks to its powerful electric motor, the Valo Hyperfoil can reach speeds of up to 35 knots. The range on a single charge is an impressive 60 nautical miles. Meanwhile, the cruising speed of the jet ski is 27 knots.
One of the main features of the Valo Hyperfoil is the intelligent Skyride system. This is special software that clearly monitors and corrects the course of the jet ski while it is in foil mode. In addition, Skyride slightly adjusts course and speed for optimal control of the watercraft.
