Eco-Friendly Boat Soars Above Water

49291

wFoil 18 Albatross can fly over water.

With the use of hydrofoils and speed, the wFoil soars above the water bypassing tough waters with a promised speed of up to 90 mph. This top speed is made possible by the hydrofoils carbon composite that allows the boat to  stay drag consistent throughout the speed range.

So how exactly does it work? The hydrofoils create a lift underwater due to the generation of different pressure conditions above and below it.

Did I mention it’s eco-friendly? The hydrofoils allow the vessel to cut down fuel  consumption. Maintaining a speed of 46 mph, the boat uses only 2 gallons of fuel an hour.

Whether you want a feel a rush in the water or you want to sail, the wFoil gives you the best of both worlds. The boat has a detachable engine and an added sail and guess what? It only takes about 10 minutes to change between the two.

Other Tidbits:

- The wFoil 18 can seat two people.

- The hull of the boat is made up of mountain spruce wood strips mounted on the aircraft plywood frame.

- Production will begin when the project is funded.

The Watertoy Thrill-seekers Have Been Waiting For

We’ve all enjoyed bouncing fun, but this watertoy is beyond compare. The trampoline or any other toy can’t even measure up to the giant, pillow-shaped inflatable.

The WaterBlob is similar to that of an Army Surplus fuel bladder. 

You might have an idea who might be bouncing you, but you don’t know when until they touch the blob and you are sent flying into the sky.

Depending on who will be popping you into the air, you can expect to be launched sky high from the WaterBlob before you hit the water. 

So if you think there hasn’t been any toy that gives you and your friends a rush, this toy definitely fits the bill!

The WaterBlob is now offered by Superyacht Tenders & Toys.
