The SEAir 5.5m Flying Tender - a foiling RIB that is just huge fun! © John Curnow

Foiling continues to captivate both the sailing and powerboat worlds. Here is SEAir's great little 5.5m Flying Tender, which we got to have a blast on the Coomera River, straight after the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

There is also the larger 7.65m craft in the range, as well as the huge quad foiler developed in conjunction with Groupe Beneteau. The latter is slated to have direct involvement in the 2021 America’s Cup as either an officials vessel, or VIP access craft. At any rate, look out for more information on this 5.5m craft, which we will be bringing out shortly.
