Wednesday, October 29th 2014. | Transportation


The fastest accelerating boat is taken by Hydroptère. There is a plan that the boat will be sailed in June.  The production of this boat is used to break the transpacific record.  The boat is created based on the aeronautic and marine technology. The manufacturer called it as the flying both due to the high technology and the fast speed of the boat.

Fastest Accelerating Boat: Alain Thébault

Have you ever heard about Alain Thébault? This French yachtsman was the person who created the design of Hydroptère. This experiment boat will be used to break the record from Los Angeles to Honolulu. Another important person is Éric Tabarly. He created conception of multihull on the dry foils. He team up with many important people who were experts in the aeronautics industry to create a wonderful boat which can break a record. His boat is called L’hydroptère. It was launched in 1994. The project to create this boat began in 1975. He also created more experiment in 1987 till 1992. However, his boat could only run in 35 knots each year. Fortunately, he got a support from Thierry Lombard of Geneva who helped him financially with the research. Therefore, he could alter his boat to reach 50 knots. However, the yacht of Alain thebauilt can reach 500 m in 51.36 knots which could break the world record.

Let’s find out more ideas about Hydroptère. The fastest accelerating boat is designed by Alain Thébault. The high speed on the water can be achieved easily because it used the multihull hydrofoil designs. Therefore, the sail powered vessel can run fast on the water. The design was created based in the inspiration of the old designed boat that he created with late Eric Tabarly. Both worked together to create high speed boat since 1990s.

Fastest Accelerating Boat: Hydroptère’s record

Are you curious with the record of this fastest accelerating boat in the world? The boat can reach the speed at 52.86 knots or 60.83 miles per hour or 97.90 km per hour on 5 October 2008. However, the record could not make it to the world record since the speed can be achieved in a very short distance. To be included in the world record, the boat has to cover the length at 500 meters.
