Two years after unveiling the half-scale prototype during the Monaco Yacht Show, the Foiler 41 was unveiled at the 2016 MYS, bringing owners the technology of the America’s Cup in their own private motor yacht.
Combining a beautiful design and the latest technologies from the racing world, it is developed to navigate at high-speed while still being secure and stable.
The exclusive design of this carbon fibre yacht, inspired by the automotive and luxury industries, giving this technological masterpiece a timeless and stylish look.
Using Hydros’ swiss technology and Enata’s expertise, the fully carbon built Foiler 41 claims to be “your very own magic carpet”.
The culmination of years of intensive research and development, she relies on patented retractable hydrofoils, and can either dock or cruise at low speed with her foils up, or fly above the water at the press of a button.
With unparalleled responsiveness, this revolutionary yacht offers an incredibly smooth and safe ride, totally removing the uncomfortable vibrations and bumps that is felt on-board a classic vessel when hitting the waves.
The Foiler 41 is available in three different deck configurations: GT, Tender (limo cockpit) & Pro (open cockpit).

The Union Internationale Motonautique (International Powerboat Association – UIM) has awarded the 2015 UIM Environmental Award to the efficient HY-41 hybrid prototype powerboat with retractable foils developed by the Swiss engineering firm Hydros Innovation.
It also gave its Environmental Benefit 2015 Special Mention to the Hydrocontest, the Hydros Foundation’s innovation platform and incubator for the boats of tomorrow. These are coveted awards that single out the best nautical projects with an environmental focus each year.
The seventh UIM Awards Gala was held in March 2016 at the Monte Carlo Sporting Club in the presence HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and members of the international powerboating community.
Jérémie Lagarrigue, CEO of Hydros Innovation and founding member of the Hydros Foundation, an accredited non-profit, public-interest organisation, received the prizes honouring two innovative projects, each brought to fruition by one of his organisations.
