FORT PIERCE — Twin Vee Catamarans’ owner Roger Dunshee knows it’s hard to improve a ride that already receives rave reviews. But he figured out how to do just that.

The Hydrofoil Supported Technology or HYSUCAT makes Twin Vee the nation’s only builder of powered catamarans to include a hydrofoil under its hull.

The hydrofoil resembles an airplane wing that is mounted between the twin hulls of the catamaran attached to the bottom of the deck. It’s is made of 2205 stainless steel, one of the hardest kinds of steel that can be used. It works by slicing through the water and at high speed it serves to help provide more lift for the catamaran therefore reducing the friction and drag of the water on the hull.

“The end result is better fuel economy, faster speeds and an even smoother ride,” Dunshee said. “A guy can get to his favorite fishing grounds and back easier, more comfortably and more inexpensively.”

Dunshee said the decision to add an innovative feature such as a hydrofoil at a significant capital investment was an investment in Twin Vee’s future.

“Adding technology in this economy when other boat building companies are closing their doors speaks to where we’re headed,” Dunshee said. “Remaining competitive in the boating marketplace means we’re having to turn over a lot of rocks.”

The hydrofoil concept applied to the catamaran hull is adopted from technology used by a few builders in South Africa, Dunshee said.To learn more about the hydrofoil and Twin Vee Catamarans visit www.twinvee.com.
