Peacoq’ is a double-handed dinghy built by French yard Foily, which allows making your very first flights without specific guidelines. Indeed, its usage and its control are very much closed to what is already done with a classic dinghy. Furthermore, Peacoq’ is giving an interesting learning curve to be able to last flying phase against floating phases.

100% manufactured in France, the hull is vacuumized at Sisco Composites which is a yard having a long experience in nautical sector as well as aeronautical sector.

Peacoq’ is in between the classic dinghy and the cruising monohull since its hull is highly stable and powerful thanks to scow bow.  Thanks to self-leveling J foils flying on the water is a way to get rid of drags and give lightness sensation which is combined with speed sensation which are really exciting.
