Flying Mantis
Foiling carbon fibre trimaran

  • What we did
  • Concept generation
  • 3D CAD design
  • Project guidance
  • Branding

The brief

Simon Chrispin wanted a boat that he could keep at home and if the weather looked good, go out sailing. It had to be super lightweight, portable and forgiving to sail. Most importantly it had to go fast or it would not be fun.

The bang

The foils can be removed so that the sailor can start by sailing on the dagger board and as their skill improves or the conditions improve, progress to foiling.

The result

Flying Mantis is a gorgeous futuristic boat that moves at exceptionally high speeds. This luxury trimaran has had a lot of attention at boat shows across the UK including an endorsement from Sam Whaley of the British Sailing Team.
