Aquila 36 with hydro foils by Morelli and Melvin registers 30 percent on fuel economy

Aquila Power Catamarans is proud to introduce the latest innovation and technological marvel on the Aquila 36 – the Aquila Hydro Glide Foil System™. Designed by catamaran and foil specialists Morrelli & Melvin Design & Engineering, the Hydro Glide Foil System is an option on the extremely popular Aquila 36. It enhances the performance, fuel consumption and handling of this already-spectacular catamaran. The hydro-glide foil improves the Aquila 36′s miles per gallon by 40 percent, compared to a competitor’s 36-foot power catamaran, and decreases the fuel consumption rate by 37 percent.

The introduction of the hydro-glide provides even more comfort on board. The hydrofoils detach on the ends and slowly glide the boat down, resulting in a gradual up-and-down movement on the yacht when cruising at higher speed. The smart technology is not as sensitive towards weight distribution as usual, resulting in a steady drive without having to feel the boat tipping left and right.

Discover the technology and ingenuity behind the hydro glide foil in the video here.
