Back to the future

Vice President of Hobie® design and Engineering, Greg Ketterman created the Hobie Tri-Foiler (pictured above) back in the 90’s. It was a revolutionary sailboat which rode on foils that automatically adjusted ride height and pitch/roll. It easily reached speeds of over 30 knots with a minimum of effort. It wouldn’t win the Americas Cup, but some of the principles are in use by the current contestants.

GO HOBIE!!!
