Overview"Maverick" is an INFINITI 46 built and launched in 2016.
She is a boat with high performance and technology in her DNA, most prevalently shown in her DSS foil system, which the boat was ultimately designed around.
Since launching the boat has impressed the world over, with top placings on almost all major RORC/ROLEX regattas, using IRC, ORCi and ORR ratings.
Although they can be seen as a daunting prospect, the benefits of the large DSS foils are widespread and as we see more and more of these being installed on new boats, we have really only scratched the surface with the performance of Maverick.
Now lying in Italy and recently competed in the 2022 Middle Sea Race.
Designed by DSS-creator Hugh Welbourn, the Infiniti 46 is an uncompromised carbon fibre racing yacht principally for coastal and offshore events.
Maverick is fitted with a canting keel and single dagger board option, to complement its lateral DSS foils.
What are DSS foils?
DSS foils have been part of ground breaking yachts for the past ten years, including European Yacht of the Year 2016’s Quant 23; the Baltic 142 which won the Boat International award for naval architecture in 2020; Wild Oats XI for two of her Sydney to Hobart victories; the Infiniti 46 “Maverick” recognised as the fastest offshore monohull of its size in the world.
DSS uses a retractable foil that deploys to leeward to complement the keel of the yacht. Like all appendages DSS produces drag, but it also creates lift, and the lift is the square of the speed. The lift created by the foil reduces the drag of the yacht through the water, increasing speed.
The DSS foil creates Righting Moment (power/stability) in the same way more crew sitting on the side of the yacht does or canting the keel or adding water ballast. This can be thought of as power.
The combination of increased power, reduced drag and significantly less heeling (as much as 30%) and pitching (as much as 42% less) produces a fast, easy to sail yacht with more comfort.
