  1. Foiling 37-meter Yacht By Skripnik Designs
    Foiling vessels are not new as the concept has been used on smaller passenger ferries and even naval applications but in the world of luxury yachts this idea has not lept from the drawing board and into reality at least on a consistent basis. Attempts have been made with applications like the Hull Vane but with foils designed to generate lift and raise the vessel above the surface of the water when underway it is less of a reality. Russian designer Skripnik Designs is proposing this concept for a 37-meter foiling yacht.
  2. The concept is called 'Rocket' so we can aptly call it the 'Russian Rocket' but it is designed as a high-speed foiling luxury yacht. It is high speed because of the 50 to 60-knot top speed envisioned at peak performance. It is really a two-deck yacht at first glance with a lower deck and a main deck but there is a hidden sundeck that is revealed when actuators lift the structure free of the top of the main deck. The top of the main deck then becomes a hardtop for the sun deck when raised. When lowered it gives the yacht a very sleek and uninterrupted streamlined appearance.
  3. This isn't the only major structural moving part onboard either, there is the swim platform that can be extended for use or it can be fully retracted within the hull for high-speed operations. Forward of the bridge there is a plunge pool or jacuzzi that can be used when at anchor or berth. The aft main deck has decent space, a long table is used for al fresco dining and there is plenty of space aft to arrange loose furniture for those quiet times on anchor. This is currently in the concept stages but it would be nice if a customer could take this from the drawing boards into reality.
