Hysucat – Performance, Ride & Economy


Is an acronym for Hydrofoil Supported Catamaran

Hysucat are the inventors of the technology

It is the combination of distinctively designed hull and hydrofoil science and technology. The Hysucat design offers the best features of a monohull and a catamaran combined.

The highly effective hydrofoil system in the tunnel between the demi-hulls is the foundation of the Hysucat’s patented technology. In choppy seas the ride is extremely smooth, with the hydrofoils allowing the vessel to run on the crests. In long waves, the hydrofoils help disperse impact and create an ideal ride, without impairing handling, creating directional-instability or broaching problems.

The lifting and damping effect of the foils also result in low wake for eco-friendly operation.
