DNA built the F4 foiling catamaran with love and by hand craftsmanship on their own yard in Lelystad, the Netherlands. The F4 is no longer in production, but we would like to tell you about the characteristics of this foiling race multihull.
The F4 was an exciting 14m long carbon foiling catamaran. Designed and built in such a way that you could push the limits in long-distance racing. The boat is the result of an extensive collaboration between Shannon Falcone (two-time America’s Cup winner), Tommy Loughborough (professional sailor) and the and the engineers/ the design team of DNA, like the well-known Dutch industrial design engineer Rudo Enserink. For 8 months, their joint focus was on design production and testing.
The F4 was specially designed for the Redbull documentary “Flying on water”. Jimmy Spithill, director of America’s Cup Team Oracle USA, foiled the first F4 from New York to Bermuda.
