Hysucat 6.5?

Hey all,

I've been saving my pennies for my first boat, and came across this ad. Having very limited boat knowledge it's no surprise I've never heard of this boat, but I was hoping someone could shed some light on them?

Also, what questions should I be asking of the seller? If it's a decent brand, I was going to pay for a 3rd party inspection as I'd have no idea if I was being sold a lemon.

A friend of mine had one back in the 2000's, we had loads of fun on that, always felt stable in the chop. He sold it an bought a big zodiac with twin 150's, didn't like it and went back to another hysucat which is still on lymington river now. I used to see quite a few around but not so many now, more deck space that a normal 6.5m rib.

I'd have one if i saw the right one for sale.

I'd love to find one available here. I'm really interested in the concept and reviews generally look favorable.

Blimey! - from their website...
The technology at the core of the Hysucat brand also allows extreme high-speed operations in excess of 70 knots. This is what makes this craft ideal for special naval operations and marine police coastal patrols. Its load-carrying capacity makes it perfect for water transport or taxi operations.

The hull of the 28 has the same Hysucat shape with fully asymmetrical demi-hulls connected by the double arc-tunnel with the ventilated tunnel step behind the bows.

The foil system consists of a main foil slightly forward of the longitudinal center of gravity and twin rear foil struts near the transom on the tunnel vertical walls. The foil system makes it possible to power up in any sea at full bore without the craft slamming, flying, or burying its nose. The ride is completely stable and safe.

The involvement of Hysucat 28 RIB’s as the official chase-boat at the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series prove again the amazing capabilities of the vessel. America’s Cup race officials chose the Hysucat over other RIB boats because the Hysucat is able to keep up with the catamarans in heavy chop while still giving a comfortable, safe ride that leaves little wake.

There was a member on here with one (Trimix??) might be worth looking him up.
