Are you looking for a valid alternative to Jetski? At first we wanted to create a flexible dinghy for our superyacht owners. However, we decided to have more fun and create something for a larger user base. Something to be safer and more user-friendly than a jetski (more stable and more user friendly). A boat you could feel the water with but also sunbathe at anchor. A boat that is easy to maintain, launch, and store in a single car garage. Lastly, we wanted to create a boat with an unusual retro/vintage feel to it on modern technology. Let’s just say it, a small watercraft to be little bit more classy than a jetski and more elegant than a 4mt rib. Ladies and gentlemen here is to you what we named The SuperNano.

The SuperNano on its first sea trial

 

SuperNano After its first 20nautical mile test in one go

It all started from an old product that we noticed in our yard that had nearly been abandoned by its owner. Now more than ever catamarans advantages are appreciated but there is not much on the market under 10 meters and without a rigging. So why not bring the fun of racing catamarans to a broader public for everybody to enjoy.

Now to the big question:

The Rodriquez team being the Rodriquez team hardly can think of a marine item without the use of foils so YES we are currently studying a foiled version but one that is truly easy to use, maintain and that is safe even for kids to operate. (We can’t disclose much more at this time but stay tuned). At this stage we can only say we will release a foiled version only when we are satisfied that is usable and relatively safe for inexperienced operators too.

SuperNano during first sea trial

 

1)Easier to maintain and re-power when/if needed

2)Easier to haul and lunch off the deck of a bigger vessel or off the beach, thanks to its flat bottom hulls

3)More stable at anchor, as two people can lay on the side and sunbathe

4)Safer than a jetski under way thanks to a lot more stability and less aggressive power to weight ratio

5)More loading capacity then a jetski you can easily carry your wakeboard and a case of your favourite champagne on it but also the groceries or two foldable bicycle and two electric scooters to explore your favourite islands

6) Safer for rental business to hire out and much more economical to manage.

7) Powered by outboard engines from 25hp to 60hp (one you may already own) or an electric one. (30 Mercury ELPT 4 stroke in the video reaching over 25knots)

Every once in a while an outstanding sailing vessel rather than a motor yacht appears on our desks. There is a handful of shipyards we hold in very high esteem and Oyster Yacht is doubtlessly in that small circle.

Oyster Yacht could be the “Bentley” of sailing yachts

The Story

I could hardly say a hydrofoil superyacht is ‘nothing personal’ it is instead very personal. My name is Leopoldo Rodriquez and I feel privileged to say I grew up on Hydrofoils, or ‘Aliscafi’ as we call them in Italian, as my grandfather Carlo Rodriquez (see History) was and still is to date the one who built and employed most of the large hydrofoils (over 50 feet) that were ever built.

About 6 years ago I started toying with the idea that the world of Superyachts could have used a breath of fresh air and as America’s cup was deploying foil technology the general public was getting more and more familiar with this still amazing concept of hydrodynamic and its deliverables.

The People

Architect Daniele Natoli standing next to the bow foil of the Built Prototype

It was only after I met the designer and engineer Lorenzo Lucchini Gilera whose great-grandfather could surely be considered as daring as mine (Giuseppe Gilera founder of Gilera Motociclette) that it became clear to me we had to start something radical. It became clear to me that a hydrofoil superyacht would have been a good start. Lorenzo had learned by masters of Yacht Designs such as Zuccon and Lazzarini and Pickering, however, very much like me, he was looking for something more intriguing and that wasn’t only about design.

My initial idea was that of a modern Yacht Version of the Pt20 just like the one in the James Bond movie “Thunderball” (See Video Above). However, we went to visit Rodriquez Cantieri Navali in Messina now Intermarine SPA, to see the latest prototype with fully submerged foils instead of semi-submerged foils. The FSH37 (or FSH 38).

“Thunderball” – James Bond Movie scene Featuring a Pt20 Hydrofoil designed, patented, and built by Rodriquez Cantieri Navali

With a preliminary agreement with Intermarine SPA, we started developing a design based on this tested vessel that was being tested and tuned with 2 different drive configurations: z drives and regular shafts.

After some initial designs of the exterior lines, I received a phone call from a young designer who I had known through common friends who called me saying I would love to design a hydrofoil yacht. Architect Daniele Natoli told me, it’s would be a dream for me because I was born on a hydrofoil. Daniele is indeed originally from Lipari (Aeolian Islands, Sicily) and I thought his speech was figurative due to the frequent use of ‘Aliscafi’ that connects those islands. Instead, Daniele Natoli birth certificate actually testify that he was physically born aboard of a 1963 Rodriquez build Hydrofoil model PT50 and his umbilical cord was indeed cut by Capt Francesco Romeo on the hydrofoil named ‘ Freccia Del Mediterraneo’ (see image below)


From a Commercial Vessel to..

So we started to work on yacht design

Designing an innovative yacht is a very difficult job even with clients that know exactly what they want. Designing one were we had to imagine who the clients could be and where every kilo makes the difference because of the complex weight distribution is even harder.

The Hyperyacht 3-seater Cockpit inspired from the legendary Mclaren F1

Hyper Goals for the HyperYacht


1) Lower Fuel Consumption at High Speed

2) Unprecedented Comfort

3) Unprecedented Stability at anchor

4) Smarter not bigger

5) Simple and timeless lines


We loved the challenge and we wanted a new name for the type of yacht

Someone once said it’s not the size that matters it’s how you use it. So maybe instead of going bigger and bigger, it was time to see something smarter.

The Name: The Hyper Yacht

The word ‘super’ was originally associated with superpowers (see Superman) but in truth, in the yachting industry ‘Super’, ‘Mega’ and more recently the word ‘Giga’ still refers to size – the latter- for the 80m+ gigantic yachts.

We have been busy trying to innovate the technology as well as the nomenclature of what we would like to be the new generation of yachts. As we did not believe this “project HSY38” truly belonged to any of the known categories Super or Giga or Mega, we thought it needed to have a class of its own: HYPER was the right one.

What is The Hyper Yacht and why is it unique?

It all started from “projects FSH37” (See Video Below) already built and tested in two 1-1 scale prototypes (38m in lenght) from Intermarine Spa (formerly Rodriquez Cantieri Navali). Differently, form ‘traditional’ commercial hydrofoils with semi-submerged foil the FSH37 is equipped with fully submerged foils that do not need to follow the wave reacting with the usual rolling and ducking of the hull. Historically speaking, fully submerged foils are a less sophisticated design, however, pre 1950s when the first commercial Hydrofoils where built and deployed by Rodriquez Cantieri Navali.

THE FSH37 passenger version prototype upon which the HSY Yacht Version is based.

Now we are ready to disclose some of the early images of the Yacht version based on such project, which thanks to a good ‘diet’ will be able to carry much more fuel and therefore a much longer range compared to the original FSH37.

We called it The Hyper Yacht

The HyperYacht HSY38

Advantages of the technology

  1. Lower fuel consumption of an expected 50% at cruise speed compared to a similar size vessel at the same speed
  2. Unprecedented comfort while on the foils the vessel goes up and down on the vertical axis with virtually no rolling and no ducking
  3. The foils act as natural stabilisers while at anchor
  4. The vessel thanks to the foils is also particularly stable at slow speed before ‘take off‘ or island hopping at slow speed
The Aft and beach club of The HyperYacht
the closed aft of the Hyperyacht
The Skylounge features a glass ceiling and a lot of natural light
The master cabin at midship with ensuite bathroom
The Hyperyacht sits 1.5 meters on the edge of the wave on fully submerged foils with computer controlled pitch of the flaps

Why is this the only credible Hydrofoil superyacht soon available to order ?

  1. Nobody except for Rodriquez/Intermarine has an history of over 300 hydrofoils built and maintained to date.
  2. No other shipyards in the world as working 1-1 scale (38m long) prototype ready to test for serious buyers
  3. The shipyard is reliable and publicly listed and will honour the delivery dates and the spec sheet performance and quality of materials 100% made in Italy.
The Flying bridge is hidden and features wind breakers at 360 degrees to enjoy the space at 40 knots cruise speed.

The team behind the project

There are quite a few hybrid boats out there that are aiming towards a more eco-friendly way to propel a vessel forward. However, pairing an electric engine with a diesel engine is old-tech building a true hybrid requires more than just an electric engine.

What should hybrid boats really be?

In our professional opinion, the concept of “hybrid boats” should be paired with the concept of versatility of a vessel or even a boat building platform that is adaptable to multiple types of users.  Water taxi, diving schools, touristic or scientific marine tours, research and marine life orientated navigation, sports fishing tours etc… It is not by chance that out of 13 units produced of the Ethos Ec 30 hybrid boat series, the majority are employed in one or more of the above mentioned activities.

Hybrid Boats - Ethos EC 30

Where is the opportunity?

The grey vessel portrayed in the picture below is for sale at a significant discount. The vessel is equipped with e new generation 270hp Hyundai engine. Should you wish to receive more information please contact us through the contact us page making sure your full contact information are available or call +44 744 530 86 22

Ethos Hybrid Boats

Flexible Layout and Modular Panels

All panels in the cockpit allow the owner and/or operator to re-purpose the vessel moving all the seating modules and storage units, on the sides (port and starboard) each of those square units can serve all utilities such as water or electricity or be used as storage.

ETHOS EC 30 allow the owner to choose among Open, Cabin and the Lounge Cabin version. Through an innovative fixing system the side bulwarks can be installed by the ship owner in any moment and without any difficulty. Therefore the boat can be converted either from open to closed cockpit. Have you ever experienced a nine meters boat, whose main deck can be transformed by moving the furnishings (sundeck, benches, table, icebox, mobile fridge / cooker, etc.).

We believe this vessel is truly one-of-a-kind.


 Hybrid Boats

Some Technical Highlights


Who are the perfect users for these hybrid boats for ?

This vessel is particularly suitable for professional daily use within diving schools, eco-tours, water taxi between islands as it seats up to 20 people. (depending on the type of registration and cost guard regulations).  It is also useful for those owners who want to also operate the vessel for water sports or simply as a pleasure boat with a lot of efficiency with a broader market for resale.
