Aeronamic presents the Flo1 as a world premiere at boot Düsseldorf, a foiling dinghy. The Flo1 is a dinghy with a length of 4.25 meters. In experienced hands, the little racer can reach speeds of over 20 knots. However, the principal aim of the new boat was not speed, but to make foiling simple. It is made possible by the self-stabilizing character of the hull. In light winds, the boat reaches boat speeds of 6 to 8 knots and already starts to lift out of the water. Thanks to the integrated DSS-system, it is easy to handle for any recreational sailor.
DSS The first two prototypes of the Flo1 were already fast, but did not meet the goal of making foiling accessible for a large group of recreational sailors. To achieve this, Aeronamics sought the help of shipbuilder Hugh Welbourn, creator of the patented Dynamic Stability System (DSS). With this DSS technology, a boat sails with natural stability. This technology has already proven itself in Infiniti Yachts and Quant Boats.
