Info. needed on Hysucat Trident 8m


My 6.5m Hysucat has become a bit too small. Was offered a 8m Hysucat Trident with 2x100hp 4 strokes. I haven't found much info on this particular boat.

Anybody with some experience with them??

No experience but have heard that the 8m doesnt work as well as the 6.5m i.e. the whole foils set up. Suggest you contact Charles (CT01) by PM as I think he used to own one.

I think Alan is right, like me and yourself, Charles had a 6.5 Hysucat, he was so impressed he went up to 8m trident, definately worth getting his views on the boat, the Trident apart from length and slightly different bench seating, to the best of my knowledge has no centre foil.It obviously would behave differently planning etc, they are pretty rare, there was one being operated as a dive charter recently maybe in Wales or on that coast.Could you reconfigure the boat you have like we did, to give more space cheers
