The aim of the SAS Project is the creation of a full foiling sailboat with electronic flight control for sailors with (and without) disabilities, produced with sustainable and recyclable materials.

Conceived for the first time in 2017 by Luca Rizzotti at the FOILING WEEK™ (We Are Foiling will manage the strategic development of the project and its communications), the SAS Project will be developed in collaboration with GS4C Sustainable Solutions, FaRo Advanced Systems (electronics), Guillaume Verdier Architecture Navale (design and engineering) and Sangiorgio Marine shipyard (boat building).


The SAS prototype will be based on a foiling hull revised by Studio Verdier. Structural modifications will be made on this and the necessary equipment for safe and autonomous foiling will be installed. The stability of the boat will be controlled by onboard electronics tuned by FaRo, which will minimize the need to help straighten the hull by shifting crew weight.

The data acquired during the sea trials will make it possible to optimize the construction of the boat through the study of the structural characteristics of the fibers and sustainable resins thanks to which it is planned to start industrial production.


SAS Project wants to become the symbol of the integration of technology and sustainability without compromise, a boat where the physicality and the technique and of the crew do not represent barriers to entry, a rig capable of allowing everyone to race on an equal footing.
