Design & engineering
The perfectly streamlined, graceful hull design minimises drag and enhances stability.
HYPAR folds back into a compact box, designed to be carried as a light-weight backpack - making it incredibly easy to handle, transport and amazingly convenient to store.
The smart boat
The modular design of HYPAR ensures easy reconfiguration from kayak to canoe, sailing boat or dinghy - even a solar boat and more!
The world first smartboat
HYPAR is a modular smartboat that can be quickly transformed from a kayak into a rowing, sailing or even a solar powered motor boat. Its innovative hull shape ensures great speed and stability while the ground breaking folding design enables complete conversion from boat to backpack in less than 5 minutes…
Portage and storage have never been so easy!
HYPAR is well suited for several environments from open Sea to narrow Streams and it can survive in gail wind and breaking wave situations despite possessing an elegant and modern profile. Outdoor sport enthusiasts can quickly and conveniently enjoy metropolitan water environments during short breaks in an overloaded schedule - such is the compact design of the product.
Constructed from custom high tech materials
The HYPAR design team worked in close collaboration with DS Smith, a leading European corrugated plastics manufacturer, to develop the perfect material for the hull which is both lightweight & reliably robust at the same time. We are proud to introduce a custom Akyboard™ polypropylene material specifically adapted for marine conditions and the unique design aspects of HYPAR.
Advantages of Marine AKYBOARD®. Being lightweight, versatile and bidirectionally resistant. Reinforced by internal sells structure, composed as cylindrical honeycomb hexagonal matrix. Marine AKYBOARD® Polipropilen reinforced with UV and Corrosion Protection. Special grade of PP improve Flexibility and Strength.
Approved by champions
Jochen Lettmann olympic/world kayak champion tested HYPAR at Dusseldorf boat show 2017.
Fold it into a backpack
Designed to be carried as a backpack, HYPAR utilises a cutting edge, material to achieve a diminutive weight of under 8Kg! Thanks to its modest dimensions, HYPAR fits most cars and storage locations and is even suitable for airline luggage.
Compact dimensions 1010mm/800mm/250mm. Overall weight 7-9kg. Belts & Straps made as a single piece harness.
The perfectly streamlined, sleek hull is outlined by hard chine running from the razor sharp wave piercing bow to the wide stern. The HYPAR outline provides exceptional hydrodynamic properties culminating in ultra-low drag, perfect course holding and impressive form stability.
Hidrodinamik propertys of HYPER hull form, advanced by Australian fluid dynamics engineer and PhD Dr. Louis Mittoni.
This revolutionary concept started with the unique shape of the hull which is designed around a sharp bow and wide stern by forming two counterpoised Hyperbolic-Paraboloids. Hence the name HYPAR.
This form resembles the water surface when pierced by a moving object. The angle and shape of HYPAR was matched with water wake patterns, thereby reducing distortion and drag.
The HYPAR`s hull shape leads for significant improvement in maritime design.
Can HYPAR be set for Sailing?
Sailing ability is one of many advantages of HYPAR concept. For the Sailing mode HYPAR is equipped with range of Sails, Out-rigs and Fin rudders controlled by feet pedals.
How many times HYPAR can be folded?
Despite lightweight Akyboard plastic is sufficiently robust and durable. The factory estimation shows that the Plastic can undertake more than 20k repetitive folds. That exceeds 20 years of daily use.
Why the HYPAR Kayak project is Sustainable?
We established a revolutionary recycling policy. Our company provides life-long support for the materials. Damaged hulls shall be replaced with only a small fee charged to cover transportation and recycling. This policy will prevent our plastic from ending up in ocean waters.
The campaign has started!
Such an exciting moment for us. It is really satisfying to finally be able to offer our smartboat to our community.
We are delighted about this rocket start:
100% reached in less than 20h!!
Thanks a lot, this is extremly promising. If we go on like this, it will allow us to develop new mods for the smartboat a lot faster.
HYPAR will be smarter and smarter thanks to you. Let's share the word and build the boat of the 21st century!
