Improved Efficiency with Hydro Glide Foil System™

The Aquila Hydro Glide Foil System™, designed by catamaran and foil specialists Morrelli & Melvin Design & Engineering, is available as an option on the extremely popular Aquila 36 Sport as well as the Aquila 42 Yacht. It enhances the performance, consumption, and handling of the already spectacular performance of these two power catamarans. For the Aquila 36 Sport, the hydro-glide foil improves miles per gallon by 40% when compared to a competitor's 36' power catamaran and decreases the fuel consumption rate by 37%. 

As reviewed by Boating Magazine: “It’s hard to believe that a piece of metal with no moving parts can be the approximate equivalent of adding 200 horsepower, 100 gallons of fuel, and 100 miles of extra range.” But, that’s what happens when the Aquila Hydro Glide Foil System is attached between the two hulls.
