Background

The SuperFoiler concept was developed by the Morrelli & Melvin Design Team (M&M) through the combination of numerous ideas and innovations. The project was initiated by the project founders Bill and Jack Macartney, who simply requested that we develop the most exciting 3 person inshore “sail racer” possible, giving the design team a lot of freedom to develop a concept like no other… fast, foil-borne, and eye-catching to the public.

The project started after the 34th America’s Cup where course-racing foiling multihulls were introduced mainstream to the public and other production foiling multihulls followed. M&M were responsible for leading the team that developed the AC72 concept and Class Rules of the 34th America’s Cup, and were part of the design team at Emirates Team New Zealand who lead the America’s Cup into foiling.

For the following 35th America’s Cup, M&M once again lead the team that developed the concept and class rules and the one-design components of the AC62 which finally turned into the AC50. This influx of research and ideas brought the motivation to re-evaluate the conventional catamaran with foils in an attempt to provide maximum efficiency for a pure foil-borne Sail-Racing Machine, which lead us to the configuration of the SuperFoiler.
