GEAR | Foiling board manufacturer acquired by new owner
Brunswick Corporation has confirmed its acquisition of Fliteboard, a manufacturer of electric foiling systems.
Fliteboard, which combines advanced hydrofoils and electric propulsion for use on vessels, will allow Brunswick to enter the emerging electric-foiling surfboard market. The company will operate as a business within Mercury Marine.
Dave Foulkes, Brunswick Corporation CEO, said Brunswick has an opportunity to scale manufacturing and distribution and, over time, begin aligning sub-systems with the company’s electric outboard product line as means of attracting new customers to electric mobility on the water.
