After three years of research and development, the cutting-edge designers at Sail Innovation last year introduced the Flying Phantom, the world’s first series of foiling catamarans.

With a combination of L-shaped foils and T-shaped rudders, this high-performance catamaran is able to foil above the surface in 7 knots of wind and reach more than 30 knots in 15 to 20 knots of wind.

Simply put: This boat flies.

To promote the innovative design, Sail Innovation launched the Phantom Sailing Team to spread the gospel of foil sailing, one regatta at a time.

Take a look at the latest sea trial results with new team members Billy Besson and Matthieu Vandame.
