EFFICIENT
The Sea Blades High Efficiency Planing Flats allow the hull to get on plane quickly and slice through wind chop and waves.

STABLE SEAKINDLY
HIGH EFFICIENCY PLANING FLATS
The Sea Blade hull has been designed to have extremely efficient planing lift by incorporating hull panels with 0° deadrise which generate more lift than Deep-V panels. In fact, 0° deadrise panels generate 60% more lift than 25° deadrise panels (see graph). Lift increases with speed so the Sea Blade is designed to progressively reduce hull immersion to significantly reduce drag. During acceleration, the wide tunnel ceilings generate lift to help get the boat on plane; At planing speeds the ama is almost completely out of the water since the lift is generated by the wide chines of the slender center hull and air and spray compression in the entrapment tunnels (see waterlines graph). BENEFITS:
Highly efficient planing lift.
Hull immersion and drag reduces with increasing speed.
Deflected spray reduces drag and keeps boat dry.
