Hysucat

Hi all, I'm wondering if there are any HYSUCAT owners on here and what their thoughts are on the boats?

Thanks in advance.

Lee

Hi Diverdad, Yes Ive got one.

I bought it at last years boat show and so far have loved every minute of it.

We bought it to use in the Med exploring Corsica, Italy and Sardinia and for diving / waterskiing from.

At the moment its here in the UK where Im getting some much needed boating experience before taking it over there.

Anything you need to know just shout.

You won't find many owners because there's only a handful of Hysucats around, although there are probably more of them in South Africa where they originated.

People who like them rave about them and don't understand why anyone would want an old tech monohull, but they've never caught on over here and as far as I know the only ones sold have been demo boats.

There was a user many years ago by the name of Charles. He had a 6.5 and absolutely raved about it, but was much less happy when he "upgraded" to an 8m boat. He posted loads of pictures but unfortunately managed to delete them all in a fit of pique before he left the forums in a strop!

Saw you moored up in Plymouth. Beautiful piece of kit. Angled engines looked great.

Hi HUMBER P4VWL, I kept an eye out for you but failed to see you sailing about. ( was there any sailing in that lack of wind)

We had a fantastic three days exploring the coast. Felt a little out of place moored up in Polperro amoungst the crusty fishing boats But they were all friendly and wanted a chat.

Looe, Dartmouth, Salcombe - all brilliant. Pasties for lunch, flat seas for cruising in the sun and to top it off we spent 20 mins watching a pod of Dolphins jump around us and zoom under the boat.

It almost felt like being in the Med. Ive seen more ripples in my cup of tea.

Think we may have passed you too actually, heading out of Plymouth Queen Anne's Battery Marina at about 4:30-ish on Sat?

If it wasn't you then there's another one in Plymouth. Serious looking tool.
