CAMPBELL SUPERWHALER RETROFIT
Wing® technology was applied to a
20-foot Campbell Superwhaler in 1980 also in California. Tests demonstrated
that the Turbo
Wing® retrofit lifted 60% of the boat's weight out of the water,
even with 7 adults on-board. This resulted in about a 60% reduction of
in drag. A
high speed turn becomes more direct, controlled and flat with reduced
boat was driven safely in excess of 65 mph during testing.
series of water tests were conducted to evaluate the contribution of the
Turbo Wing retrofit for improving craftperformance, i.e. increasing the
speed of the craft and reducing fuel consumption. The results of these
tests are presented in the chart below.
