The pleasure of flying over the water
The Overboat is a clean and quiet personal watercraft. It is equipped with the latest technologies of automated hydrofoils and electric propulsion,
With the Overboat we can all fly over the water.
Electronically stabilized flight (fly by wire)
The Overboat is stabilized by 4 electronically controlled foils. Flying effortlessly becomes possible thanks to the unique combination of 3 advanced technologies.
An ecological delight
- A 60% reduction in energy requirement : only the hydrofoils and legs are in the water once the boat has taken off.
- An electric motor with direct drive which, at equal power, consumes 3 times less energy than a heat engine.
- A lighter platform, the floats simply having a role of buoyancy when stationary and for take-off.
- An electric foil boat consumes only 20% of the energy consumed by the same outboard motor boat… and with zero noise and zero polluting emissions in the water.

Automated and retractable foils
The second generation foils lift the boat completely out of the water with better profiled “vertical” legs that take up less space under the boat. These are real underwater wings capable, with speed, of lifting the machine to which they are attached. In the opinion of all experts, the so-called inverted T profile is by far the most efficient for a mechanically propelled boat
Why ? The horizontal plane is the best way to support a machine (like the wings of planes). The vertical foil leg reduces drag and limits the ventilation phenomena (turbulence on the surface which draws air down the leg and can create a drop in the foil (loss of lift).
Our patented automatic regulation technology is the most efficient with inverted T foils. Indeed, this limits the forces involved. In the field of robotics and mechatronics, it is important to limit the efforts to be made, because this reduces the size of the actuators and increases their reliability. We have created an automatic system that is light, robust and efficient
