Only a Waverider has such an aggressive, proud reverse chine, running full width all the way from bow to stern. It is your hydrofoil: a registered design that makes the performance possible.
No stubbing of toes - your feet rest underneath the wide side decks, which allows you to brace your knees against the side. Feel secure pulling up big fish or when anchored in a choppy sea.
Enjoy super quiet rides, due to the sound buffering quality that your side flotation provides. The inside hull is lined with more aluminium plate to completely seal the flotation chambers.
Not only do you have an alloy trailer designed for the boat it carries, but you can drive-on drive-off. Fish alone and ensure you have an effortless time at the boat ramp and on the road.
ALL ROUND SEATING
Sit where ever you like on the sides of the boat. The wide side decks provide generous support and comfort, and the boat's stability handles the weight placed on the edges with ease.
The base of all centre & side consoles have an open hole so if water does flood the boat and rises above the front bar, the water weight will flood the bottom of the boat & safely act as ballast.
Made from 5083 Marine Grade Plate Aluminium throughout, the thickness of the plates are kept as similar as possible to ensure even heat distribution through all welds for max strength.
WALK-THROUGH A WAVERIDER 500 CENTRE CONSOLE
SUBMERED HYDROFOIL - AN OPTIONAL EXTRA
HYDROFOIL PATENT # 2012101872.
The hull of your Waverider is shaped with inbuilt hydrofoils for outstanding performance, and you also have the option to add additional hydrofoils that are submerged under the hull, for the ultimate in comfort during travel.
Waverider Submerged Hydrofoils extend the soft, smooth ride of Waveriders even further. So, when you venture into particularly rough conditions, lower your Hydrofoils, so they can lift your hull above the chop.
Enjoy journeys speeding faster over inclement seas and feel like you're flying.
Waverider's Submerged Hyrdofoils are each hand-made, and precisely fitted one on each side. The location in the hull, the overall shape, strength and positioning of the foils must be exact, as well as be a perfect mirror to the other side or else the boat will steer or lean away from 'normal'.
The Hydrofoils when not in use, are drawn up so they tuck under the wide reverse chines when not in use, providing very easy trailering. This is due to the centre-board casing system used within the boat.
Waverider's Submerged Hydrofoils cost $5,000 (aprox.) in addition to your Waverider and due to the measurements needing to be exact, can only be added during the build process.
See the Ultrafoil video on the Welcome page for details or contact Pat, the designer, directly: 0467 506 131.
Due to the exacting formula required to install the Submerged Hydrofoils, they cannot be added to boats under 5m. Nor can they be added to any other boat, other than a Waverider. If Submerged Hydrofoils were fitted to a standard mono-boat, there is a very high risk the Submerged Hydrofoils would tip, capsize &/or flip the boat.

The Waverider's perfectly designed shape handles the extreme effects produced by the Hydrofoils to result in the desired increased comfort, performance and better handling ability in rough conditions.
When you purchase a Waverider with Submerged Hydrofoils, you're getting the product of years of research (dating back to the 80s), culminating from a heap of sea-trials to fine tune the shape, size, angles & location of the Hydrofoils.
We are now proud to present to Australia the ultimate offshore accessory, for comfort & confidence when you need it most.
