The Baltic Yachts shipyard began sea trials of Canova 142, the first hydrofoil superyacht.
In this case, the wing (it’s the only one moving from side to side) doesn’t “pull” the yacht out of the water, but hydrodynamically unloads the hull, reducing the heel and improving stability. The yacht is highly automated and mechanized – the entire running watch consists of one person.
