Electric racing powerboat

VPLP entered into a very innovative collaboration with the SailGP circuit in 2020. The aim of the project was to study and assess the architecture, design and technical solutions for producing an electric racing boat with full foiling capacity to create a fleet of one-design racing boats.

This collaboration was incredibly effective, fluid and constructive! The result was a foiling boat capable of making not only 45 knots but also high-speed turns thanks to an entirely automated flight control system.

VPLP are sincerely grateful to SailGP for their trust. Designing the technical aspects of this special project has been a unique experience for the firm.
