The company I work for has recently come into possesion of two Voskhod 2 hydrofoils. They are currently registered and docked in Canada. One of them was built in 1977 and the other in 1989. They have both been completely refurbished and overhauled in 1999 and are in excellent condition.

We would be interested in selling these vessels and was wondering if anyone there would be able to provide some information potential buyers or avenues we could follow to find some.

Any info you can provid would be greatly appreciated.

30’ CUSTOM HYDROFOIL RUNABOUT – VOLGA 70 converted in USA by Danish craftsman in 1989/90

 

Photos are available to interested parties upon request. I’d estimate speed potential well above 60 mph with the current setup. The boat is very light and I’m sure the gearing and prop could be optimized to move the boat a good deal faster. One bonus of the foils is very low resistance and the 454 sips fuel as a result. Details follow:

30’ Custom Hydrofoil Runabout

Hull: 30 ‘Aluminum aircraft construction with bulkhead forward and aft of cockpit. Triple step semi V-hull planes on forward foils at about 15 mph , aft foils fly at about 20 to 25 mph. Estimated top speed 65 mph + with very good fuel economy due to no hull resistance when foil borne.

Foils: Stainless Steel/Titanium twin Delta forward, twin ladder foils aft. All foils have vertical fin stabilizers and anti-cavitation endplates.

Mechanicals : 454 cu in LS – 6 V8, balanced and blueprinted, magnafluxed crankshaft, Edelbrock,Glenwood,Holley components, special cam, dry oil sump, 60 gal aluminum gas tank, Crusader 4500 series V-drive 1.3 :1 ratio, cupped Nibral propeller.

Deck: Varnished Honduras Mahogany covering boards and king plank, oiled Teak decking.

Hardware: Chrome plated bronze and stainless steel. Stainless spotlight, nice flag setup.

Interior: Varnished mahogany flats and dashboard, marine leather upholstery seats 5 adults.

Instruments etc: Stewart Warner analog, foot throttle, custom steering wheel and floor shifter.

Trailer: welded steel tandem axle. Foils support boat on trailer rails. Hoist or forklift launch recommended.

Boat is registered in New York State and spent its life on Lake George. Boat and motor have never seen salt water. It has a smooth ride in serious lake or river chop.

I am looking for a buyer who will appreciate the exclusive nature of this boat and the fine craftsmanship used throughout it’s construction. It can be delivered on its own trailer( included in price) or on a flatbed.

This boat is one of a few hulls brought over from Russia in the late 70’s through Florida. Boat was manufactured at Volga Hydrofoil Manufacturing Plant in St. Petersburg, USSR (at the time) and this style was used for inland river patrol. Allan Furth of Lake Tahoe casino fame owns one with a deep inboard outboard drive setup and I located another hull in British Columbia. This is the finest conversion by far and a real thrill to drive or ride in.

Asking price is $40,000.

“33”,”848272″,”11″,”Trampofoil is back!||848272″,”Good news, I just discovered the Trampofoil is back, and available in the US. It is not sold under that trade name, but the design appears to be identical. For those of you who haven’t heard of this, it is a 30 pound frame with an 8 foot wide rear foil, handlebars, and a self adjusting front foil. You start from a dock, stand on the rear platform (much like the rear platform on a tricycle), and bounce up and down to propel it. You can’t start from deep water (no floatation), and I’ve been told it is similar in to jogging for the energy it requires. It is capable of speeds over 15 mph. It has 2 moving parts, the steering, and the front foil/follower. It gets it’s propulsion from a flapping motion of the rear foil as you bounce. More good news, the original Trampofoil (as I recall) sold for $1200, this one goes for $500, much more reasonable. You can find it online at http://www.hammacher.com/, just look under water toys. I’m ordering mine today (how can I resist?). Although in the long run mine will probably end up with a styrofoam hull, batteries, and a trolling motor. 🙂

The hydrofoils will have to be made of metal I think. Has anyone got any suggestions of where I could get such things from or made?

DAK Hydrofoil Extrusions

ViewThread

      • Cleaning out my garage, I came across the remains of a long abandoned sail powered hydrofoil project. These include some hydrofoil extrusions that I purchased from David Keiper ~25 years ago.
      • These are the 2″ chord anodized 6061T6 aluminum hydrofoils that he was selling to convert small catamarans to foil-borne operation using a ladder foils in an airplane configuration. The history section of this site gives a good description.
      • I have five – 12′ lengths of lifter stock (Clark-Y section) and two – 12′ lengths & two – 5′ lengths of strut stock (NACA 16-010 section)plus some shorter cut and fitted pieces and a Northwyn Thistle mailsail (70’s materials, but new condition) and a serviceable International 14 genoa.
      • I will sell the lot to a good home for $50 US plus shipping.
      • Sad to read that David had passed on. I met him at Sailtech – 89 and have long been impressed with his work. BTW: A friend reported seeing him and “Williwa” in a S. Pacific port with a sign on the dock reading “Crew Wanted — Chicks Preferred”.

DAK Hydrofoil Extrusions

      • A set of Dave Keiper’s files related to these kits (approx. 270 loose sheets) is still available from IHS. This set includes draft instructions for attaching the kit, cutting patterns for making up the foils from the raw extrusions, extensive email correspondence related to testing and fine-tuning the design, calculations for selecting the foil profile, and many notes on capabilities and prices of potential extrusion suppliers. Dave only completed a couple of kits, and the remaining raw extrusions were sold to various people worldwide. This set of files will be of interest to anyone who with the desire and knowledge to design a hydrofoil kit. Keep in mind that the files are unfinished and unedited, and the kit design was never fully completed and debugged at the level of detail design. You must have the requisite technical and mechanical ability if you are to put these files to successful use. For more details and instructions on how to order the files, go to

http://www.foils.org/ihspubs.htm#dakfiles

      • Much of the email correspondence in the files is with Dave Carlson. Dave was working with Dave Keiper to debug the kit design, and continued to refine the design and material specifications after Keiper’s death. Carlson’s website is at

http://www.fastsail.com/catcobbler/

      • . It might be well worth contacting him to discuss his more recent experiences and lessons learned on the subject of adding foils to cats.

      • I am not sure what type of hydrofoils you are interested in… military or commercial? engine power, human power, or sail? The premier sources of info for military and commercial hydrofoils are Jane’s Publications (

http://www.janes.com

      • ) and

Fast Ferry International

      • magazine (

http://www.fastferryinfo.com/

      • ). The IHS website has a section on designers and builders in the links page (

http://www.foils.org/linksout.htm

      • ), however this accumulation of links cannot be considered complete. There are many shipbuilders capable of building hydrofoil craft “to print” and a few that offer standardized hydrofoil designs… many of the latter are in the IHS links. If, on the other hand, you are talking about small personal sailing craft, there are some links on the IHS site related to this area of hydrofoil manufacture. There are also some links related to human powered hydrofoils, althought the Human Powered Boats website (

http://www.humanpoweredboats.com/

      • ) is a more complete source.

Looking for a Pax Ferry Hydrofoil

      • We have developed a very efficient and sea-capable foil-assisted trimaran on behalf of a Norwegian client. The test craft used to prove the concept can be seen on our web site at

www.islandengineering.com

      • A range of designs have been produced based on this concept, from 18m/pax only through 56m pax+cars. You would probably require the 23m/149-passenger version.
      • Feel free to contact us directly for further information if this is of interest. One of the 18m designs is starting construction in Norway.

Novel hydrofoil prototype for sale

      • After a successful testing program, our 43′ 9-ton foil-assisted trimaran has no further mission or sponsorship. Before we dismantle the craft for salvage, we are offering it for sale as a fully functional operating hydrofoil. The craft can be seen on our web site at

www.islandengineering.com

      • . The craft operates at a lift fraction of 85-90% and is fully computer stabilized in height, roll, pitch and yaw with fly-by-wire steering of the twin Yamaha 250 outboards. The hull is 5083 aluminum with an easily removable FRP/sandwich superstructure. With over 2 tons of variable payload capacity, the craft could easily be converted to a 20-pax water taxi. With the current propulsion setup, the cruise speed is 25 knot with a 25 GPH fuel consumption rate. Maximum speed is 30 knots; a bit higher if loaded to maximum displacement; the maximumspeed is actually limited by excessive foil lift rather than the installed propulsion power. Seakeeping is phenomenal with bus-like ride quality in 4′ significant seas at all headings.

Volga 70 for sale

ViewThread

      • I have a Volga 70 export version (Volvo Penta stern drive) for sale. I found it in France 3 years ago and brought it back to my home in Sweden. I have fitted a Ford 350cu V-8 instead of the old 6-cylinder Volvo engine because it was totally rusted and useless. I have continued the restoration but I feel there is little time since I have now been blessed with my second child… The boat runs smoothly and I have had it passed 40 knots with still more throttle to give. The engine is probably too powerful, since the construction is made for approx 32-35 knots and a 100Hp engine, but I find that you can cruise at 30 knots with only half throttle and the boat climbs up on the foils with little or no effort at all, so I have kept the engine in place! However, as I mentioned, I do not seem to have the time I want to, or indeed the boat deserves, so I have decided to sell it. Price: 10 000 EUR E-mail me at:
