This is a unique combination of a slender aluminum hull of a Russian Volga hydrofoil, and a wooden deck and the interior style of a classic runabout.
Despite the sizeable 300-plus horsepower engine, the boat is very fuel-efficient. The minimum water resistance translates into a fuel consumption of approximately a mere litre per nautical mile. Another quality of this type of boat is its uniquely gentle movement even through heavier seas. The sharp foils slice through the waves like a hot knife through butter.
If you're looking for something unique to bring to shows - this is the boat for you!
