Hysucat, the original manufacturer of the hydrofoil-supported catamaran, is set to unveil its new line of products at the 2016 Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show. The event runs from 11-15 February.
The company has opened new facilities in North Carolina (US) and Turkey and introduced a new range of models including a 25ft and 30ft Centre Console and a 6.8m RIB. A number of improvements in styling, ride, and weight reduction have also been done to the previous 8.5m RIB.
In addition, the company has rebranded its corporate identity with a new logo and launched a new website.
Hysucat is a patented concept Karl-Gunter Hoppe. Malan Conradie, a former student who collaborated with Hoppe, is a marine engineer and creator of today’s Hysucat brand. Conradie has developed and produced more than 1,300 hydrofoil supported catamaran vessels to date, ranging from 16ft to 52ft.
Hysucat 8.5m RIB will be on display at the show. The boat is capable of reaching 80mph using a pair of 200 HP Mercury Optimax outboards. The vessel can reach 56mph in less than 7 seconds.
“We’re excited to participate at this year’s Miami show with our improved range of boats and at several other shows around the country in 2016,” says Ken Comfort, head of Hysucat sales in the U.S.
The company has also announced that sea trials will be available at the show.
