The epic story of l’Hydroptère in 8 minutes

Its multihull hydrofoil design allows the sail-powered vessel to reach high speeds on water. The design is based on experience from a range of hydrofoil sailcraft that Thébault built in cooperation with the late Éric Tabarly since the Hydroptere story. On October 5, 2008 she reached a record speed of 52.86 knots.
