AN iFOILER WITH INCREASED STABILITY AND PERFORMANCE
IFS - INCREASED FOILING SYSTEM, INCREASE THE DYNAMIC LENGTH AND BEAM OF A FOLER TO INCREASE ITS STABILITY AND PERFORMANCE
MOTHQUITO FIRST TRIALS
On June 28 we left from the Base of the Nautical Club of Jávea towing the Mothquito to perform the first tests of stability and speed of transition to flight or foiling mode.
We are very satisfied with the results obtained, because at only 6 knots the Mothquito has started the flight with determination and great stability, despite navigating on the foam and turbulence of the boat's wake, towing Mothquito.
Now it only remains to make some adjustments by increasing the support surface of the rudder foils to give more lift to the stern and test the sails and trampolines that our friends of Advanced Salis are preparing.
Our thanks to the Jávea Yacht Club for the Base and all the attentions for the Mothquito. Also to the RFEV Spanish Federation and the FVCV Valencian Federation for their support and interest in the development of the project, the first Spanish foiling.
I would also like to especially thank all the companies and numerous friends who are collaborating to make this incredible and radical boat a reality. Thank you all, you are all true "Mothkeeters".
All for one and one for all!
MOTHQUITO, NOMINATED BEST DESIGN IN FOILING AWARDS 2018
THE NEW FLYING CATAMARAN GENERATION DUE TO
THE IFS SYSTEM (INCREASED FOILING SYSTEM)
Mothquito is a catamaran with dynamic stability and performance increased, due to the patented system IFS or Increased Foiling System, so it's defined as increased foiling catamaran or iFolier which is the name and brand that IFS has started to use to name the boats that adopt their IFS system.
With an innovative design, this incredible foiling catamaran with IFS system, promises high speeds with great stability, perfect control and maximum safety, by significantly increasing its dynamic length and beam in flight, which provides:
An increase of the righting moment improving the transversal stability with heeling reduction.
An improving of the dynamic trim that improves the longitudinal stability, eliminating a negative trim, and reducing the risk of flip its bows into the water coming to pitch-pole.
At present the Mothquito is in the process of manufacturing and it's expected to be able to carry out the first tests soon.
