YOUR SMOOTHEST RIDE

HYDROFOIL PATENT # 2012101872.

FOR ROUGH OFFSHORE CONDITIONS

Every Waverider comes with hydrofoil aspects built into the aggressive reverse chine, which runs the full length of the hull. This produces amazing hydrodynamic lift to the entire boat, even at the bow, which is important to help prevent nose diving.

If you like to travel far offshore, where you're likely to encounter rough seas, you'll love the comfort of additional retractable, submerged hydrofoils to be installed -- a first for mass produced trailer boats in Australia!

Special attention has been paid to the design, to allow them to be fully retractable for fishing while at rest and for ease of travel on trailers. You only need to lower them when you need them, otherwise they stay up and out of the way, under the reverse chine of the hull.

The difference of Waverider boats, when compared to regular monohulls, is like comparing a 4WD to an average sedan.

Most boats are only suitable for fair-weather close-to-shore fishing trips. Not the Waveriders. They're built for long-distance travel through rough weather.

When you want to go further off-road in your 4WD, you've got to add lift-kits & hard core suspension to make it, let alone make it in comfort - which are comparable to adding  submerged hydroils to your Waverider. It's making the best boat even better!

hydrofoils raise your bow out of chop, softening your ride and allowIng you to get home faster

The hull of your Waverider is shaped with inbuilt hydrofoils for controlling the bow, which has a roll-on effect for other performance benefits. Now, you also have the option to add retractable hydrofoils that are lowered 600mm under the hull, to raise the bow out of chop, to soften the ride and allow you to go faster in rough weather.

Hydrofoils are the ultimate in comfort during travel.

Hydrofoils cost just $5,000 (aprox.) in addition to your Wavrider and can only be added during the build process.

MAKE EVERY TRIP FEEL LIKE A FAIRWEATHER DAY

You'll see hydrofoils on large passenger ferries, in places like Sydney Harbour, which give tourists the most comfortable ride and to limit wash. When boats with hydrofoils increase speed, a great amount of lift is created, which raises the hull out of the water, making it a breeze to speed right over chop, and save on fuel consumption.

With the lift that is generated, you can forget about slowly bobbing your way out to sea and crash-landing over the crests of swells. Rough, offshore conditions feel anything but, with a hydrofoil. Get there as fast and as dry as a fair-weather day.
