  1. I'm going to try to win the "silliest comment award", here goes: it's amazing how this boat foils, and at this point, seeing the hull completely above the water, you wonder why the designer fitted a folding prop to this thing? I mean he could have saved a few hundred euros as a fixed prop would to the exact same thing for half the cost and no disadvantages!

  2. Amazing engineering, really cool, and I would love to see one of these in real life.

    Another fun thougth: besides the noise from the engine, the boat doesn't appear to make effective use of resources (diesel). It made me wonder – if the same 110 HP engine wer to drive a foiling motor boat, could a crew of 8 travel faster from A to B than on the flying Nikka? Likely, but of course, less style.

  3. Excellent video Tobey. I couldn't agree more with your finale assessment of why it was built. We have to build better and faster. Right? I also like the vagabond look. 🤣👍
    As usual. I hope to see more from you. Cheers.

  4. Très impressionnant mais j’ai beaucoup de mal avec tous ces voiliers (Rambler 88, wild oats, Wally…..) qui doivent faire tourner un diesel en permanence pour alimenter l’hydraulique. Mais sinon quel bateau fantastique 👏🏻👏🏻

  5. Amazing boat! Think they missed a trick with this starship though – a hydrogenerator on that keel would surely have provided enough power to run the hydraulics no problem.

  6. why not just race airplanes fly 10' over the water. Give me 6-8-12 metre boats any day. Those flying boats are like NASCAR, we are just waiting for a crash. The best thing about the America Cup flying boats is betting on the races , they are so quick . To each his own I guess.
