ENAUTIC reveals two new Electric Hydrofoil Personal Watercraft (PWC) models

Following the successful launch of the WaveFlyer Volaré last year, the Australian-based startup is now launching two new PWC models to demonstrate how the WaveDrive Technology can be applied to multiple use cases.


ENAUTIC made its debut in the boating scene with the launch of the WaveFlyer Volaré in July 2023. This electric hydrofoiling craft, featuring fully retractable hydrofoils and an electric propulsion system, was designed to serve as an applied technology platform to showcase the effectiveness of ENAUTIC’s patented WaveDrive technology.

Offering unparalleled energy efficiency without compromising on speed or range, the WaveFlyer Volaré has been received phenomenally well by the industry and ENAUTIC currently has a US$10M orderbook for the recreational product.

Users have praised the WaveFlyer for its simplicity and the sensation it provides on the water: “Everybody should have an opportunity to experience the WaveFlyer, it provides an exciting yet refined way to get out and enjoy the simple pleasure of cruising over the waves, all whilst in complete silence thanks to the responsive and smooth battery technology” - Lewis Almond

I've never been in a boat that keeps you so dry and is so peaceful. Passing other boats, kids and Dolphins without them hearing or being affected by your presence is such a surreal feeling.” - Lorri Bell

Expanding the Range with the Launch of the ROGUE and ROGUE-X Electric Foiling Personal Watercraft


After the success of the WaveFlyer Volaré, ENAUTIC is now launching two new electric foiling PWC concepts - the WaveFlyer ROGUE and WaveFlyer ROGUE–X. The models are based on the same hull and foil package as the WaveFlyer Volare, and will continue to serve as an applied technology platform. Understanding the need to appeal to all different audiences and skill levels, the two models offer different user experiences.

The WaveFlyer ROGUE model is an electric foiling personal watercraft craft with a maximum speed of 20 knots. It caters to family fun, exploration, and personal mobility, and is designed for one or two passengers.

On the other hand, the WaveFlyer ROGUE-X model is designed for thrill-seeking riders accustomed to traditional ICE-powered PWCs. Boasting a maximum speed exceeding 40 knots and intense maneuverability, the ROGUE-X delivers heart-pumping excitement without the typical noise and wake traditionally associated with personal watercraft.

The ROGUE model will be tested in the coming months at ENAUTIC’s riverside location in Perth, Australia, and is set to be showcased later this year.

OEMs interested in licensing the manufacture of these crafts should contact ENAUTIC to arrange a demonstration in Tampa, USA, during the International Boat-Builders Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) in October 2024. The WaveFlyer Volare craft will also be available for demonstration.

Commenting on the launch of the new PWC models, ENAUTIC CEO, Paul Steinmann said, “We are really excited to be able to offer the world all of the thrills, spills and excitement of PWC riding, without the noise and wake issues that have resulted in these crafts being banned from many locations. Silent operation with virtually no wake means that these fun-machines can operate without annoying other water users, whilst producing no emissions.”

User Selectable Flight Control Levels

Both the ROGUE and ROGUE-X models feature ENAUTIC’s user-selectable flight control levels (FCL). The user can select from 5 FCL settings via the touch screen, to cater for their individual preference for safe, easy operation, through to aggressive and dynamic maneuvering.

FCL-1 delivers safe, stable, auto-stabilized flight control with gentle, easy-to-use turning suited to inexperienced users or a more relaxed experience. The dynamics of handling increase with each FCL setting, right through to FCL-4, providing extremely dynamic handling that requires experience and skill to control, and is not for the faint-hearted.
