Hydroptere, The World's Fastest Sailboat

 “Hydroptere” is designed by a group of French engineers in order to show the different perspectives of sailing of transportation on water. After all, this sailboat can accelerate to a speed of 55.5 knots, equivalent to 103 km / h. Hydroptere multihull hydrofoil design allows the sail-powered vessel to reach high speeds on water.

As a result, the contact area of the body of water is reduced to a minimum of 2 square meters. Flying sailboat “Hydroptere” since its inception, is regularly hit another record speed as for short distances, and the long ones. The new goal for this ship is to overcome the distance as quickly as possible between Los Angeles and Honolulu, the capital of the Hawaiian islands.
