Twin Vee: hydrofoil adds performance and efficiency to catamaran hull

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

Dunshee said he could hire one or two employees in the next few weeks, and plans to hire 15 more in the first quarter of 2012.

Dunshee also plans to expand his product line.

At the 52nd Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show later this month, Dunshee will unveil Twin Vee’s first hydrofoil catamaran, a 35-footer that can run up to 58 mph in four-foot seas with fuel economy up to 40 percent better than similar-size conventional boats, he said.

The 35 Twin Vee Hydrofoil Supported Catamaran offers the affordable quality for which the brand has been known, but with innovation that truly sets it apart from similarly designed catamarans and even vee-hulled boats.

The new Twin Vee incorporates the technology of a stainless steel hydrofoil that supports a portion of the watercraft’s weight during operation.

“The performance of this hull is phenomenal,” said Ernest Denning, a resident of Islamorada who recently drove his Twin Vee from Fort Pierce to his home in the Florida Keys. “I’ve had 50 boats and this thing handles like a Porsche.”

Denning said he ran his boat, rigged with twin Suzuki 300 horsepower outboard motors, 220 miles for 5 hours and 45 minutes, averaged 39 mph and used just 150 gallons of gas. He said he owns a Boston Whaler 32 Outrage and his Twin Vee is larger, wider, faster and burns one-third the fuel.
