    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Can't find who built it.
    https://www.bluebird-electric.net/hydrofoils.htm

    US NAVY 1953 - The Lantern (HC-4), a Navy prototype, was one of the earliest hydrofoils to use electronic controls. It first flew in 1953 and reached a maximum speed in calm water of only 18 knots. This vessel has through-hull height adjustable struts, the forerunner of the DHL design above.

    Grab rails, and a life ring on deck, safety first.
    Eighteen kt for 10 ton displacement with 200 hp sounds pretty impressive to me.

    the water pouring out of the central strut (rudder?) is interesting.
