RECORD BREAKERS – With Hydroptere, Alain Thébault and his team made a pioneer’s dream come true: “to make a boat fly”.They built a legendary boat that inspired generations of engineers, sailors and adventurers. Dreams are made to be fulfilled and records to be overtaken…
The team Hydroptere sets out to conquer pure speed again. Target: to exceed the 80-knot (150 km/h, 92 mph) sailing speed barrier onboard Hydroptere Rocket, a two-seater prototype exclusively built for very high speeds. A performance that could enable sailing to definitely enter the “supercavitation” era, the equivalent of supersonic speed for aircrafts.
Boat: two-seater proa prototype
Program: 2+1 years
Objectives: outright sailing speed records and exceeding the 80-knot sailing speed barrier
