Wavefoil develops state of the art bow foil technology.
Wavefoil combines a smart retraction mechanism with the use of light but strong composite materials, Wavefoil is bringing wave propulsion to the market. Foils generate lift when the vessel is moving up and down in waves, and the lift typically has a forward thrust component larger than the drag. Put simply, wave power is directly converted into propulsive power. A vessel in waves experiences additional resistance compared to calm-water operation. For wave lengths like the hull length, this additional resistance will be amplified due to resonance, implying large heave and pitch motions.
