The Futura concept is built around a wide, thin and compact chassis. Width gives you wind range and power. The thin profile lowers the centre of gravity for added control. The Futura allowz you to save energy, maintain a high average speed for miles and turn the smoothest jibes. Our choice for long distance marathon races.
Dimensions: 225×63, 99 liters
The Futura 63 is based on the successful iSonic 63 and adds more V, more concave and smoother rails to allow you to reach max speed in harder conditions with more confort. It is the perfect tool for long distance races such as the Défi Wind.
Dimensions: 67 (228×67, 106 liters), 71 (228×71, 109 liters), 77 (228×77, 117 liters) & 86 (228×86, 144 liters)
These models have more volume than their predecessors due to new boxier rails. The cutaways are update to the new double-steps like those found in the new iSonics to improve planing and acceleration. The result is extra racing feel and performance without sacrificing comfort. The Futuras are available in Carbon Sandwich and Wood sandwich.
READY TO FOIL
The Futura 71, 77 and 86 are fitted with Foil-Ready fin boxes.
THE FLAGSHIP CONSTRUCTION
Ultralight weight at a more affordable price and using more environmentally friendly materials. The bottom is built in full T700 uni-directional ﬂat-woven carbon for maximum stiﬀness while the deck is 60% carbon, alternating between uni-directional and bi-axial carbon layers for optimized ﬂex. The composite sandwich layers include the use of ultra-high density PET and PVC foam.
OUR MOST DURABLE PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY
Designed with the lowest carbon footprint in mind, Starboard’s new Wood Sandwich technology is a full deck and bottom sandwich construction finished with a 0.6mm Australian pine wood bottom. A high-performance PVC sandwich core is used on the entire bottom and the deck’s tail areas for maximum stiffness, maximum durability and minimum weight. The deck is further reinforced with layers of uni-directional carbon and flax fibres for added strength and stiffness. Our most durable tech.
