SEAir is based in Lorient (Brittany, France) and is a key player in the boat industry due to its expertise in foiling sailing yachts and motor boats.
SEAir’s founding idea is that hydrofoil technology should not remain the preserve of seasoned skippers, but be made more mainstream.
We did not invent the foil, which is over a hundred years old, but we believe it to be of crucial importance in an elaborate ecosystem, while others see it more as a carbon part that you add to a boat.
SEAir makes alterations to existing boats and also designs the boats of the future, alone or in partnership with boat builders.
We innovate constantly and develop a wide range of components with the purpose of making foiling simple, affordable and within everyone’s reach.
SEAir’s foil blocks © are mainly for 5 to 12 metre boats. Their success gave rise to the marketing of the Flying Tender, available since 2017.
It is all in the balance, since a foiling boat acts counter to the laws of Archimedes and Newton! In remaining airborne, the stress on the boat’s structure is substantial, so architecture and control of structural engineering are key. SEAir has designed a digital simulator with which it can configure any type of foiling boat.
Getting a boat airborne is no mean task. Experts in this field, our teams work to provide optimally sized foils (profile and structure), with which we alter existing production boats or design new models to meet your expectations.
Designing retractable and adjustable systems, providing the best possible horizontal boat position and further enhancing comfort and safety involves an excellent command of mechanics and servo control loops. Based on our expertise in foiling boats we draw up foiling standards that we implement in our onboard systems.
A team of composite technicians is in charge of our assembly and production department where we test our own systems or integrate them in foiling boats.
We carry out extensive testing to ensure SEAir systems operate in all possible conditions. We measure and interpret the resulting data which serves us in all our future developments. We ensure that all our systems are certified.
