LIFT OCEAN - THE TEAM
We believe it is about time to challenge traditional boating. It is time for zero emission. It is time for applying new technology. It is time to reinvent boating.
Inspired by flying sailboats, Lift Ocean aspires to make the hydrofoil technology available for everyone.
By flying above water, we solve the main challenge linked to decarbonization of high-speed boats; hull resistance.
Our hydrofoil system reduces the power required by 50-70 per cent and fuel cost by 90 per cent compared to conventional boats.
Getting a boat airborne is a challenging task unless you have the right competence, experience and tools. Therefore, we will offer hydrofoil systems to all boat manufacturers worldwide so they can keep doing what they are good at; making boats, while we make them fly!
