Hydroptere – 47.2 knots

The fastest sail boat in the world is the Hydroptere. This is an incredible trimaran and if you watch the video on the site below you will see that the hulls barely touch the water – meaning that the whole vessel is virtually flying.

Last month Hydropteré became one of only a handful of sailboats to Hydroptere break the 50-mph barrier, with a run that topped out at 47.2 knots (54 mph) in 25-knot winds. That’s just a knot and a half shy of the absolute sail-speed record of 48.7 knots – but that’s held by a windsurfer, so it’s arguably safe to say that Hydropteré is – for the moment — the world’s fastest sailboat.
