OVERBOAT - A zero emission watercraft using hydrofoils with adjustable angle of incidence

Allowing everybody to enjoy the thrill of flying and surfing over the water, without training, in complete safety and with no pollution is what the Overboat is all about. This is achieved thanks to its fully submerged regulated “T” foils which are commonly recognized to be the most energy-efficient type of foils. Special attention has been paid to weight and to the innovative electrical engine to further save precious energy. As a result, the Overboat spent about 20% less energy than a regular gaz PWC. Thanks to its innovative technology, Overboat achieves this without noise or carbon emissions and with the lowest possible energy consumption to preserve the sensitive marine ecosystem. The Overboat is very smart as it can fly by itself with remote control. It is specially designed to be shared or rented to optimize usage as it includes fleet management, geofencing and safety monitoring features. The Overboat is Neocean contribution to a cleaner and better boating experience.
