About the project:

 

The world’s first foiling Maxi is revolutionising sailing, bringing America’s Cup technology into wider spheres. Designed to compete in key Maxi-class and long-distance Mediterranean races, the boat is equipped with state-of-the-art foils, enabling full-foil sailing at speeds exceeding 40 knots.

Line Honors Trophy winner at the 2023 Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in Porto Cervo, Flying Nikka is setting a new standard. Aerodynamics experts from North Sails helped lift this incredible yacht to new heights, and, harnessing our rich America’s Cup expertise, we provided a high-performance Southern Spars rig, which is perfectly complemented by ECsix multistrand rigging from Future Fibres & Synapse integrated load monitoring.
