HydroSail Sailing Hydrofoils

 

 

HydroSail has the expertise to design boats of nearly any size which can fly fast.  Designs for production boats or custom racers can be built to meet your needs.  ARE YOU READY TO FLY?
 
Dr. Sam Bradfield, Tom Haman and Mike McGarry lead HydroSail  with over 50 years of experience designing and sailing hydrofoil boats.  After designing a hydrofoil system that set world speed records in 1979, the team at HydroSail moved forward to design hydrofoil systems which are practical for everyday sailors and racers.  Whether sailing at 30 knots, or tacking out of a busy harbor, these highly-maneuverable hydrofoils are a dream to sail.
