Sailing boats rising out of the water on foils is not new. However, until very recently it was typically small lightweight craft that were the test bed for these experiments and trials. Our present Supermaxi is the first Supermaxi testing DSS technologies.

Meet the Crew


There are not many sailors who have won two of the most prestigious ocean races in the world, the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart in Australia. Ludde Ingvall has won each, twice, including leading the super maxi Nicorette VI first across the finishing line in the 2004 Sydney Hobart..

Originally from Helsinki, Finland, Ludde now lives in Sydney. He started sailing when he was still a boy, having built his first dinghy in the family garage with his father. He sailed his first Whitbread Round the World Race in 1985 as a crew member, before contesting the next race (1989/90) as skipper of his own boat. Since then there have been many campaigns and successes.
