This tender moves silently and environmentally friendly, plus it leaves almost no wake after its passage, without disturbing other boats and vessels. Quiet but also fun, it can exceed 20 knots of speed at maximum power, flying above the water thanks to the foiling system engineered specifically for this craft. Integration with the smartphone app makes it easy to monitor battery levels, track speed and distance traveled, and receive alerts when it is time to recharge.

The hull of the
WaveFlyer Volaré
measures 290 centimeters in length and 125 centimeters at maximum beam, with a draft ranging from 40 to 110 cm, depending on the position of the foils. The tender has a layout that includes two horizontal seats (with a settee) and a center console with a 7-inch HD display plus joystick for steering. The price of the WaveFlyer Volaré varies from 49 thousand dollars required for the basic version (with 1.5 hours of range, about 19 nautical miles) to the 59 thousand set for the version with 4.5 hours of range (about 55 nautical miles) via the intermediate version that costs 54 thousand dollars and promises 3 hours of range (35 nautical miles).
