UFO boats has been specializing in the creation of technical pieces in carbon fiber in the sport industry, aeronautic, navy and R&D for 20 years.

Architect Xavier Pillet gained his initial experience with the conception of wind surfs (super gliding hull). He then perfected his knowledge of hydrodynamics by working for 10 years on the creation and the realization of fins for windsurfs at the highest level. Due to his passion for nautical sports in general, he came up with the idea of creating this innovative hull by associating parameters issued from his own experience so as to improve gliding and passage through waves.

The sandwich hull carbon / epoxy offers an extraordinary balance with respect to the ratio solidity / weight. A structural reinforcement in aramide/kevlar, was added so as to reinforce the keel, which are particularly exposed to chocks and abrasion. The floaters are in hypalon / neoprene. They offer resistance, durability and easy maintenance. The teak was chosen to dress the deck for its comfort and easy maintenance, as well as for it’s its non-slipping qualities, and of course for its esthetical qualities. It is an integrant part of the structure.
