Obviously: The final design of an aircraft designed to break the world’s speed record, powered by wind alone and traveling above 90mph.

  • SP80 Craft was created for the purpose of voyage to the record book
  • Its purpose is to reach a top speed of 80 knots, powered by wind alone.
  • Under construction from the summer of 2021 before the design was announced
  • The boat will be launched next year and a record attempt is planned for 2023.

The final design of the aircraft designed to break the world’s speed record has been revealed.

The SP80 craft, like a spaceship, is built for voyages to record books, with a top speed of 80 knots (about 92mph) and the only source of power is the wind.

The Swiss-based SP80 described the boat as a sea rocket and said it would be officially launched later this year.

The first record attempt is planned in the south in the summer of 2023 France..

The boat will be larger than the original concept (10 meters long and 7 meters wide), but will be towed across the waves by a giant kite.

There is space in the cockpit for two pilots. One pilots the kite and the other pilots the boat.

It has been under construction since the summer of 2021 and this sophisticated futuristic form is in the final version.

It was designed by a team of engineers and students at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), which combines the principles of sailing, kitesurfing and engineering.

Co-founder and pilot Benoit Gaudiot said:

The boat will be larger than the original concept (10 meters long and 7 meters wide), but will still be towed across the waves by a giant kite.

At ‘150 km / h, it is imperative to focus on one task.

“Therefore, the pilot steers the kite and the co-pilot secures the orbit of the boat.

“But at low speeds, or about 30 knots, the boat can sail alone, which welcomes passengers on board and gives them a special experience.”

The SP80 boat is assembled at the famous Italian shipyard Persico Marine, and the main hull is expected to arrive at the SP80 headquarters in Renens, Switzerland, in April.
