Flying Phantom

The Flying Phantom is a new generation of foiling catamarans. The concept is based on design work Martin Fischer has done over the past years on foils and the expertise of Franck Cammas and Groupama Sailing Team. After an extensive of different foils and rudders configurations, they came up with a combination of “L” shaped foils and “T” shaped rudders, providing pitch and heave stability in full flight but also being competitive in light winds. The carbon / epoxy hulls in combination with a carbon mast built in an autoclave result in significant weight reduction, the increased total beam improves the stability while foiling and a longer mast provides additional power. The foiling cat is the future of our sport and offer new sensations and previously unknown performance levels.
