High Tech Composite DSS Foils


DSS Foils for Maxi Yacht

In 2016, Triac Composites manufactured the base structure for the DSS (Dynamic Stability System) Foils on the Maxi Yacht, CQS.


The 8m long foils are structurally engineered to generate 100 tons of lift.


To withstand such loads, each structural skin has approximately 120 layers of high modulus carbon.


The foils were manufactured by Triac Composites using its own autoclave, here in Vietnam.
