Quadrofoil – the world’s first fully electric and completely environmentally friendly hydrofoiling personal watercraft – is now ready for production and available for pre-order worldwide, the Solvenia based company announced on Friday.
Quadrofoil is an electric hydrofoiling personal watercraft (PWC), providing the most economically efficient and completely environmentally friendly mode of recreational marine transportation, says the company. The hydrofoiling and patented steering technology, makes the riding feels like flying on water and provides an entirely new and thrilling water experience.
The watercraft operates quietly and doesn’t produce any waves or emissions, which makes it suitable for lakes, rivers, seas as well as marine protected areas, where most motor boats and personal watercrafts are prohibited. It has a top speed up to 40 km/h (21 knots) and a range of up to 100 km (54 nautical miles) and can be fully charged in under 2 hours.
Quadrofoil is ready for production and available for pre-order worldwide as of October 2014. The limited edition first series is due to be shipped in March 2015 on a first come, first served basis.

Quadrofoil is completely environmentally friendly due to electric outboard motor propulsion and special steering system, both custom developed for Quadrofoil. C-foil technology uses buoyancy force to lift the vessel above the surface and travel with minimum water resistance allowing the watercraft to fly on water at speeds up to 21 knots cruising speed (40 km/h) and with several times better efficiency than any other personal watercraft on the market. With buoyancy force which lifts the vessel above the surface, Quadrofoil can travel with minimum drag and extremely efficient battery usage. Additionally, operating costs of 1 EUR per hour and low maintenance makes it also the most wallet-friendly PWC.
A patented, integrated steering system makes your Quadrofoil experience simple and exciting. The technology also works as a stabilization system and makes the vessel responsive on the water and prevents drifting. Quadrofoil is designed to be almost unsinkable due to its airtight top module and foil hydrodynamics that create automatic balancing and stabilization.
