The price is for a base Hysucat 8.5 RIB without engines or options.
The advantages associated with Hysucat vessels remain unique to their extraordinary patented design, a concept that is equally evident in the new 8.5 RIB.
The 8.5 offers key benefits and comforts that make it the perfect choice for clients in leisure/cruising, commercial/transportation, and government/military markets; contoured upholstery that provides comfortable seating and watertight lockers; a large, versatile modular deck area that allows for a variety of seating options with enough space for up to 14 people.
The hydrofoil 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 8.5 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.
