Hydrofoil Retrofit for Small Power Boats

Their website doesn't exist so I'm guessin' this is a hoax.


Project under development by Northwest Hydrofoils.


A 28' Bayliner with a surface piercing hydrofoil system that increases efficiency by 40+%.



See our site,
www.nwhydrofoils.com, for more information.
