550 WAVERIDER with HYDROFOILS, 2018 built
Beam is just under 2.5m making it as stable as a catamaran - no joke - due to the massive reverse chines unique to Waverider Boats.
Trailer is custom alloy, dual-axle trailer - extremely easy to drive on/off on your own, it's a dream to tow as well.
For performance videos in rough conditions, check out www.WaveriderBoats.com.au., or Facebook; Waverider Boats.
Built locally on the Sunshine Coast in 2018, this boat has had a little over 20 hours demo time on the clock, and performs exceptionally well in rough offshore conditions with the additions of the fully submerged (and retractable) HYDROFOILS.
The Hydrofoils offer even MORE control and softeness at the bow. The Waveriders are reknown for their smooth, soft ride in rough conditions, but the Hydrofoils keep the bow of the boat higher from the chop, which makes being up the bow comfortable in rough conditions - normally the worst spot on the boat!
Visit the website to see the years of research that has gone into these HYDROFOIL additions - this is not the first prototype, but the result of careful R&D over 30 years.
