Move over James Bond

The Quadrofoil Q2S Electric Limited Edition

 

 

Yep, the James Bond thing never grows old. It's either that or a Nehru Suite and a fluffy white cat. I've had a Persian and it was truly faithless, so I suspect the master villain thing is not for me.

But I digress. You are looking at a revolutionary hydrofoiling watercraft from the folks at Quadrofoil. The top of the range (of three) electrically powered drool inducing, glass reinforced plastic, 2 seat, zooming machines. Basically as much speed and excitement as you can poke a stick at.

This thing goes 40 km/h (21knots)! It takes just over 5m (16ft.) to get airborne and start skimming over the waves, which is amazing considering it's just under 3m long and weighs 335kg. A 5.5 kW state-of-the art engine is paired with two 5.2 kWh batteries giving an 80 km range, which would be very helpful for those long range missions. The manufacture claims that average operational costs are well below $2 per hour and apparently it is environmentally friendly. Can't quite see where a dolphin is going to fit but then who am I to judge.

Sadly, it is currently sold out, as of 28/07/2017. However the Q2A and the Q2S still look mighty fine, if you have the coin ;-)

You can take a gander at https://quadrofoil.com/

And yes, I am looking into the price. I'll update it when it comes in.
