You may have heard of Hydrofoil Technology, but do you know the advantages of hydrofoil technology on a boat? Hysucat has been designing boats with this technology and wants to provide you with some advantages you’ll see.   What is Foiling? It’s first important to understand what foiling even is and why it’s being used so extensively on boats. Foiling is simply the use of “hydrofoils” on the hull of boats (usually boats that produce high speeds) to give extra lift and clearance at planning speeds. The foils will often carry the hull of the boat out of the water.   What Is The Benefit of Hydrofoil Technology? Having your boat’s hull completely leave the water is a scary thought, but it does come with one big advantage. Efficiency. The largest problem a fast boat faces is the amount of effort that is needed to push them through the water. Foiling helps eliminate this problem by raising the boat out

The RIB, or RHIB, has been one of the most reliable and iconic types of boat for many years. RIB or RHIB simply stands for Rigid (Hulled) Inflatable Boat and can be seen almost anytime you are on the intercoastal or the open ocean. RIBs are extremely reliable boats, constructed with a solid hull, lightweight, and inflatable tubes that line the entire outside of the boat. The unique design of a RIB makes it extremely easy for the boat to withstand large wave impacts and boat wake. This is achieved using something called Variable Geometry Hull, meaning the hull will change shapes when taking an impact.  The tubes that line the side of the boat are meant for additional protection around the hull when coming close to another vessel or trying to dock. These unique safety features that are only found on a RIB make it very appealing to sailors everywhere.    Things to Consider When Looking for a RIB
