The New Foiler in Town

There's a new foiler in town, and at half the cost of a moth, the WASZP could be the next big thing.

Conceived in 2010 by Andrew McDougall, the designer of the Mach 2 Moth, the WASP has been a several year project aimed at making foiling sailboats more accessible to the sailing community.

An affordable, modern, durable, easy to learn and race class, the WASZP offers accessibility to the world of foiling that the Moth cannot. A choice of three rigs provides options for 40 to 100 kilo sailors.

Because of durability of the hull and foils, and the ease of use, the WASZP delivers a platform for both beginner foilers to advanced racers.


The concept was for a foiler similar to a Moth, but answered all the sticking points that stop people buying a Moth; most importantly the cost. At just half the price of a Moth, the WASZP will provide a platform to enter the world of foiling for an entirely new audience.
