I would guess a retractable foil.  The part you cannot see (is inside the boat) is probably curved so as the foil is deployed it reaches a horizontal plane.

It was nice enough for someone to video that and give it to them or did the driver just forget what he was supposed to be doing and decide to speed trial his boat? 

I couldn't see anything in that video except speed. Are the crew hiking or are they on outriggers? 

I did like the speed though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like foil retrofitted on a lifting keel sport boat.  I don't think it is that boat in the video which is flying.  Wrong colours.

Someone thought that stealing a foil off an Airbus and butchering it onto a boat would make it fly?

No detail on the boat. But for myself makes sense to have the tip up instead of down.

Such a strange age gap in terms of FB usage.

 

I, and 90% of the people I know, stay logged in to Facebook 24/7. Lots of folks choose not to use it, but I couldn't think of anyone off the top of my head who doesn't stay logged in.

 

As for the question of "what is it", I have no idea, but I do see that nobody has asked the essential question yet of: what's it rate??!?

Very small keel bulb. If it's not the boat in Jon's video it's something similar - foiling Libera or similar crazy Swiss boat...

What happens when you hit a log or a seal?

It breaks if it a log, it’s seal sushi if not.

I think we are looking at a stroke of genius.  This makes too much sense.

Vierwaldstättersee. Or precisely Urnersee. Hull and Keel are more or less from Mocean 26.

You always see these things on flat water. What happens in a steep chop or big swell? Asking for a friend.

I doubt that is any part of the design brief for a foiling monohull. So it doesnt really matter.
