We don't just say our boats perform, we prove it.

Pat Jones displays the different boats sizes in offshore, bar-crossing conditions to prove Waverider Boats can handle the big stuff. These boats have the performance and stability that's needed in both crucial and ordinary situations.

So hang on tight and enjoy the ride!

WATCH & SCRUTINIZE; WR 550

Stability when boarding? How much tilt does two on one side create?

Tight, sharp turns at-speed? How much of an angle does the boat bank or tilt?

Dry ride? How much spray is being turned down & how much is wetting the crew?

Soft ride? Is the boat pounding through the chop, jarring heads on impact?

WATCH & SCRUTINIZE; WR 610 (prototype)

Stability when at rest and underway? How much does it tilt or rock?

Tight, sharp turns? How much speed is lost? Can you turn on a wave?

Broaching or nosediving? In a following swell, can the boat overtake a wave safely?

Dry ride? How much spray is being captured to create lift & soften the ride?

HOW WAVERIDER BOATS HAVE HYDROFOIL TECH BUILT-IN

Pat explains his past experiences & failures with hydrofoils on trailer boats, starting back in the 1980s - and how his love of hydrofoils inspired him to design the Boat Collar product, and now the Waverider Boats.

PART 1.

OPTIONAL SUBMERGED HYDROFOILS

Available as an optional extra with new orders - the Submerged Hydrofoil  is used in rough conditions to provide an even smoother ride and give even greater control and handling. Fully retractable while fishing and for easy trailering.

Waverider boats are the 1st (& currently only) boat company in Australia to provide a Hydrofoil on trailer boats.

Note* - Hydrofoils cannot be added post-build, and cannot be added to any other boat - only viable with Waverider hull shape. See Hydrofoil &/or Features pages for more info.

PART 2.

PAT JONES'S HYDROFOIL BOAT IN 1980s - where it began

After some redefining research and development with hydrofoils, Pat Jones tested his theory on the 'worst boat' for offshore conditions - a flat bottom barge. The results were amazing, and proved that a hydrofoil drastically improves ride comfort, control and handling.

In the 80s, the Ultrafoil boat was featured on Chris Conroys 'World of Boats', and the episode segment is featured below. Hope it brings back memories 🙂
