Innovative Foiling with no restraints
Quite simply, we aim to create the fastest beach launched catamarans, across all conditions and at all points of sailing.
Outboard Foil System – Righting moment increases as boat lifts out of water
Canted T-Foils – Optimised to produce zero leeway for hydrodynamic efficiency
Active Flight Control – A bow mounted moth style wand system for stable flight
3 Point Flight – Much less drag by having the windard foil raised clear
Gulwing Deployment – Foils are raised for high performance in light winds
Straight Boards – Slide them in for lighter airs, shallow waters and for recovering boat

Calendar still under construction, however, if you come to Essex you can find us foiling upwind, downwind, on a reach and through the gybes.
Mark has been sailing on and off with William for a very long time, he is the sort of guy you want around when it gets a bit lairy!
Mark’s profession is sail making and his sails power the Vampire to ridiculous speeds in all conditions.
A long term multihull sailor and now foiling moth convert, Kyle has been able to bring added refinement to The Vampire Project. Focusing on technical tuning, sailing technique and future development.
“The Vampire rule is intended to give the designer and builder the fullest liberty to innovate, to develop faster and more sailable boats.
We welcome participation and input from innovative sailors anywhere in the world. If they build something slower we will help them. If they build something faster we will copy them.”
