Future-E electric foiling yacht concept by Centrostiledesign

Centrostiledesign has conjured one of the most impressive yacht concepts we’ve seen, with this electric foiling yacht looking a bit like a sports car for the water.

It’s called the Future-E, and it’s being billed as a ‘zero-impact’ boat that produces no noise, emissions, or waves in the water.

That’s because, as a foiling yacht, it’s designed to fly above the water rather than push through it.

The yacht is designed around a hull made from recycled carbon fiber to keep its weight down.

The body itself has been designed to look like a car.

And thanks to a removable roof, it can easily transform from a sleek coupe to a convertible.

However, its wings draw upon those of a jet aircraft.

The wings extend out slowly, eventually lifting the hull completely off the water when you reach 16 knots (29.6km/h; 18.4mph)

At full speed, it will reach around 30 knots (55.6km/h; 34.5mph).

So while it might look like a supercar, the performance isn’t quite as impressive.

The company promises the handling should be akin to a sports car thanks to its responsive wings and rudders.

It’s also worth noting that you don’t have to use its foils either.

They can be retracted and the Future-E will then simply function like a normal boat.

However, when they are in use, there’s a Formula 1-derived suspension system to keep the yacht nice and steady.

It’s a kinematic system that uses a gyroscope and electro-hydraulic actuators to mitigate the impact of choppy waters.

Inside, there’s room for three people in a layout somewhat like that of a McLaren F1, with the driver sitting centrally and two passengers to the side and behind them.

For the driver, there are three massive displays that wrap around as well to give a focused cockpit-like feel.

The Future-E definitely looks the part then, but for now, it’s only remaining as a set of renderings.

However, foiling yachts are fast becoming a thing, so we’ll wait eagerly to see if this particularly attractive one comes to fruition.
