Northern Light Composites ecofoiler

The fully recyclable ecofoiler foiling dinghy was developed and built by Northern Light Composites to make foiling accessible for everyone. It uses Bcomp’s high-performance ampliTex™ reinforcements to replace traditional glass fibres with a renewable material and is manufactured in a 3D-printed and fully recyclable mould.

Northern Light’s Composite structure replaces traditional glass fibre with ampliTex™ natural fibre reinforcements for a more sustainable construction. However, it is not only more sustainable from cradle to gate but thanks to a special resin system, the entire hull can be recycled at the end of the foiling dinghy’s life. At the same time, the additively manufactured mould can also be recycled and turned into a new one.

The ecofoiler foiling dinghy will allow sailors – from beginners to professionals – to experience the magic of foiling on a truly sustainable boat. Thanks to Breton SpA’s additive manufacturing technology, the mould can be created in a short time and is fully recyclable at the end of its life. The natural fibre composite solution with Bcomp’s ampliTex™ and a thermoplastic resin makes the ecofoiler the first fully recyclable foiler.
