The US- built Aeroyacht – ALPHA 42 crusing catamaran is the world’s first multihull which will be offered with a patented, automatically retracting daggerboard. No electronic chips, complicated sensors or pressure gauges. The device operates on the principles of smart engineering, common sense and a single pin. Aeroyacht has teamed up with a New England think tank lead by composite engineer, Norman Cook. They are presently collaborating on completing the prototype Alpha 42 SCABBOARD™. The patented SCABBOARD™ has the efficiency of a high lift daggerboard yet automatically retracts on impact. The Aeroyacht-ALPHA 42 catamaran has contracted a world-wide exclusive agreement and will be the only yacht to feature this new safety-high lift foil system. The SCABBOARD™ might revolutionize the sailing world, will greatly enhance safety and sailing performance while providing super shallow sailing and beaching.
