This is the first production boat foiling for the first time. Illustrates the light air foiling capability of the boat: around 4kts over the deck  7-8 at the top of the rig. Note where the crew is sitting.

This is the first large cat I know about to adopt "Z" foils as now used on A Cats. Mainly for "skimming" as I understand the article. If it were to foil it would probably require active manual rake control-at least on the windward foil to zero out lift and/or create downforce. It will be interesting to see how this develops.
