Bieker Boats has years of experience designing fast foil-born boats, including the Oracle Team USA for America’s Cup. Glosten has a long history, over 50 years, of designing passenger boats.
To achieve ultra-efficient transportation, Glosten and Bieker Boats combined the proven technologies of ultra-efficient hydrofoils, lightweight carbon fiber hull construction, and modern geared propulsion equipment. With a requirement of less than half the installed power of a typical passenger catamaran, fuel consumption results in a 50% reduction. And for shorter routes less than 12 nautical miles, battery-electric propulsion can be operated.
The vessel has low drag foils, so it has less impact on sensitive shorelines.
