Our long experience for you !
20 years of professional sailing on many different platforms and passionate about foiling since 2007, we have been looking at ways to improve efficiency in the early days of foiling boats. The canting foil was for us the ultimate option and the first sketches were made more than 10 years ago. We wanted to prove our concept by modifying an old boat called A-cat and we achieved great results immediately. We decided to go further!
All this would not have been possible without Isabelle Rinsoz who is part of the NTFM project since the very beginning when we tested the first version of the canting foil. Isabelle is a passionate sailor and open to innovative thinking that helps to move sailing forward. Without her commitment, this adventure is not possible! NTFM stands for “non ti fermi mai”, “never stop” in Italian. It is the name of her sailboat she likes to race in the Mediterranean.
Together we are proud to introduce a brand new boat based on our proven concept. Building another multihull or monohull would have been to easy and we strongly believe that you need to think out of the box when it comes to foilers.
This boat will remain a prototype until we decide on final details for production planned early next year and we are happy to have Publiaz, a real estate agency based in Switzerland alongside with us for this step.
