While we have witnessed the Moths go fully airborne, so another foil-related revolution is also slowly making headway in the keelboat world with the Dynamic Stability System lateral foil arrangement. While we covered this in depth last year, finally the first bespoke yacht featuring the system has been launched in an all-carbon 25ft skiff-like sportsboat down in Brisbane. Capable of 20+ knots in 12 knots of breeze and weighing just 400kg, this new weapon will be heading for the Swiss lakes this summer. In our interview with him, designer Hugh Welbourn gives us chapter and verse about how the project is progressing.
