Hydrofoil technology has been around since the early 1900s, but it always looks like something out of a science fiction movie. The Quadrofoil, a lightweight and modular watercraft from the company of the same name, is no exception. This two-person watercraft contains an all-electric outboard motor and sits atop carbon-fiber C-foils. The vehicle itself has a top speed of 40 kilometers—about 25 miles—per hour and boasts a range of up to 100 kilometers on a single battery charge. Quadrofoil also prides itself on its silent motor and eco-friendly design, which thanks to the C-foils, means no noise, no waves, and no emissions.

The craft’s price tag reflects its design. According to Quadrofoil’s website, each of these personal watercraft would cost just over $18,400 to purchase, and that’s only for the base model. The more expensive versions can go up to $27,600.

What do you think? Could these watercraft be the fishing boats of the future?
