Default Hydrofoils James Bond style

Ive got some old skis and some time on my hands. Thinking of converting the Liberator to a hydrofoil like in the old Bond film. Seriously though, was or is there anything still being built? I think of the film every time I see one of those Air Chairs. They do cut through rough water without a bump.

Performance
With twin 75 hp outboard motors, HydroSport can reach top speeds of between 65 and 80 mph, while carrying up to 8 passengers.

For the more demanding boater, equip HydroSport with twin 150 hp outboard motors and reach top speeds of between 90 and 110 mph.
