A future in foils

A highly innovative company based in Lorient (France) is looking for European industrial partners to make an ambitious project a reality. SEAir recently signed a contract with DGA and AID.

With a strong Design and R&D office, SEAir states it can make any boat ‘fly’. The company is able to adapt any hull to accommodate a foiling system (foils, activors, sensors…), and designs foils (carbon composite, steel, aluminium…) to create new prototypes. The SEAir team designs new proven hydro foiling systems in-house and the company’s expert technicians fit the foils at the workshops.

Foiling systems are able to improve operational capacity; SEAir’s foiling system enables increased average speeds in rough seas, better seakeeping and reduces fuel consumption thereby increasing operating range. Enhanced stability reduces the incidence of injuries and fatigue. Compared with a standard RIB, reduced noise, reduced turbulence, reduced slamming and spray all contribute to significant improvements in crew safety and welfare.

SEAir has already received numerous awards, including three world firsts and has 15 patented systems, including the first foiling RIB. Recent deliveries include the new Beneteau (10m – 5t) with four foils and the Sillinger 7.65 m boat, which has integrated intuitive control systems and are able to beach, to dock, due to retractable/folding and servo-controlled foils.

SEAir will show the Sillinger 7.65m boat at this year’s edition of Speed@Seawork 8 June 2020
