Gavin, nice shots of your Hysucat. I am considering purchasing a Hysucat next year as my first RIB. Could you give me any tips or advise on these RIBS. I have heard that they handle our rough waters very well and are quick boats. Any advise from someone who has one would be appreciated.

Cheers

Hi
All I can say is......(in my opinion) the Hysucat is the best 6.5 rib going. I had the first one in the UK for about 3 years, the only reason I sold it was for the fact that my wifes family moved back to Jersey and we quickly ran out of space! You will be hard pressed to find another rib that can handle the chop as well as the Hysucat can. She is incredibly stable at rest due to the cat hulls, minimum HP required as the foils 'lift' you out of the water creating less drag. I loaded her with 14 people (twin 50hp 4 strokes and she was on the plane in a matter of seconds. Capable of 17 knts with one engine raised. Fantastic for water-skiing as the wake is virtually non-existent. I would strongly advise a couple of hours tuition before helming this craft as she does not perform as mono-hulls do. (There are a few little secrets to get the most out of the boat).I can highly recommend the Hysucat for extreme fun, safety and a soft ride!

and just in case check this out Watch the video

Good luck, ORDER it now, you won't regret it

The Hysucats are great boats , you have to trim them dead level for them to peform at there best, we have not got the best yet out of ours as the motor are to heavy for the back , and we will re-distribute the weight by moving the fuel tanks over the winter,

at the monent its amazing in a short steep sea, it just flyes over the top of it, and the faster you go the better the ride.

I cant wait until we have it sorted out.

ps Myself and gavin own the Hysucat between us, It meens running cost are split and the boat is used much more, I hate to see boats unused and just tied up.

Charles,

Is it worth importing directly from SA or should I just buy from the official importer in the UK?
Are Outboards cheaper in SA given the current Exchange Rate?

Hello rcleminson (Is it Rob?)

This is a loaded question with no easy answer. If you want to save money, no question, go direct. I can provide you with all the numbers etc you require.

On the other hand......if you were to purchase a Hysucat from the UK agents, who are Crayfords, you will obviously pay more. It is far less hassle-free, depends what you are prepared to put up with. I was stung with my engines because they (Yamaha) regarded it as a 'grey import'. After months of haggling I finally had them agree that it was a 'brown import' and they honoured the warranty. You could probably import the boat and then purchase the engines locally and have it rigged by someone like Andy Clark (Bosuns mate). He understands the Hysucat set-up better than anyone in the UK.

I will be happy to e-mail you the details of my friend, Malan who builds them, and you can decide for yourself what you would like to do.
