We make our partners' planing boats:

 

Softer

Conventional spray rails with their flat surfaces are associated with hard landings. Petestep® deflectors, on the other hand, dampens landings and lowers slamming by up to 50%, resulting in unmatched ride comfort.

Leaner

Petestep® hulls reduce resistance by removing friction and reducing energy waste. Up to 35% less energy is required to propel the boat forward, which could lead to significantly lower fuel consumption at comparable level of comfort.

Quieter

No more clatter in waves! Because Petestep® hulls don’t have any horizontal flat surfaces that smash the water under the hull, the biggest source of hull noise is removed. This makes Petestep® hulls create a lot less noise from waves, which significantly adds to the comfort of the ride.

More stable

Petestep® hulls increase stability, both at speed and at the dock. At zero speed, Petestep® hulls have a wider footprint that makes the boat less prone to heeling. When at speed, the deflectors stabilise the boat, once again contributing to a better ride.

Patented spray deflecting technology

 

 

The Petestep® spray deflectors are a brand new concept that surrounds the running waterline above the water in a triangular shape. This has many great advantages and not been done before, why we have been able to patent the invention.

 

“Petestep’s simulations proved to be very accurate. The range in planing speeds was actually increased by 15% and the maximum speed increased by 10% compared to a conventional hull. The ride is also incredibly dry” – Antoine Hèber-Suffrin, product manager at Zodiac Nautic.
