Innovative Foil Design

Fully articulating balanced lifting foil design dramatically reduces the risk of “foiling crashes”, making foiling much easier and safer.

Very low drag and always in laminal flow means speed and efficiency.

Easy Launching

Fully retractable Daggerboard and Rudder Verticals, and clip on lifting foils that allow you to launch straight from the trolley. No need to tip the boat over.

Clamps on both centreboard and rudder box, to hold retracted foils while on land.

Quick Rigging

Nikki comes pre-assembled and clips together super quickly. Rig up in less than 10 minutes and get on the water!

Wings that can easily and quickly be removed in less than five seconds.

Unstayed two-piece carbon fibre mast features a halyard designed specifically to make rigging and de-rigging easy on shore or the water. 

The mast bases are of different lengths to suit the sail sizes, and all tips and bases are easily interchangeable. 

Safety

Fully-adjustable wand allows sailors to start low to the water’s surface and gradually fly higher as they gain skill and experience.

High-visibility colours on sails, wings and foils, so others can easily spot Nikki from a distance.

Capsize-righting ropes as standard, so sailors of any weight can easily right the boat.

Sailing Vertsatility

Sailors have the option of flying high or riding low in displacement mode. All Nikki’s come with inserts that clip into the vertical foils to use for displacement sailing.
