===============
Actually start building Monday or Tuesday when balsa gets in. Check it out-all design work is done. Quite a different hull shape than the Q 23.

From the Yachts and Yachting article above a couple of shots of the deck arrangement in way of the foils:

Quant 23 Foiling Scow Keelboat

From the Quant boats website:

Taller rig for the Production boat

The ability of the Q23 to foil in light conditions is already quite pronounced. To offer even better results in the light we developed a taller rig with a slimmer shape of the sails (elongated sailplan) it will look more or less like this.
With this modification, we think that a take off is possible in around 5kts true - measured on deck height and around maybe 8 kts in the upper part of the main.The ability to foil in lightwind is key to bring more people into foiling boats. Lightwind foiling is pure pleasure and you are able to train your instinct and reflex movements to learn to control the boat when you foil in more breeze once you passed the basic steps. The main will get a reefing point of course.


Approximate difference between original and production rig:

Quant 23

Toby Hodges of YachtingWorld:
Category: Special Yacht

Nominees: Bente 24, Corsair Plus 600, Far East 28R, Farr 280

Quant 23 – European Yacht of the Year 2015/16 winner

Hodges says:
I can’t remember ever seeing our jury so excited about sailing a boat before! Here is a design that promises much but somehow delivers even more. Even if you didn’t even fit the foils you’d still have a blast on this super-fresh sportsboat – a lake sailer that ensures scows continue to have cult status.
Add Hugh Welbourn’s Dynamic Stability System and you have a sportsboat on steroids, a craft that puts serious fun back into sailing, and makes foiling approachable.
The Quant shows exactly why we created the ‘Special Yacht’ category
