Starboard Aluminium 95 Plus
Starboard foils use a unique technology, with the goal of providing products with uncompromising performance and flawless reliability.
The fuselage is made from a block of6061 aluminum. Lightweight and rigid, this type of aluminum is also used in aircraft structures. One of the strengths of6061 aluminum is its resistance to corrosion even when the surface is abraded.
Starboard Foils is the pioneering brand in the fusion of carbon and aluminium in foils: carbon is used for thinner parts such as wings, where carbon is the optimum material formaximum stiffness on the fuselage.
For fuselages with a more square cross-section, aluminium has more suitable characteristics. The choice of an aluminium fuselage makes the foils stiffer, more stable.
A word from the designer: Tiesda You
With the Plus fuselage the aim was to increase the forward power without increasing the wing area. With the new concept the forward wing is further forward than on traditional fuselages because the mast connection is further back. The front wing is further forward than on traditional fuselages because the mast connection is further back. This gives more power, for an earlier take-off, a better general lift and more glide.
