Hysucat builds response vessels for Sea Tow

Sea Tow, the leading boater assistance service with nearly 100 franchises serving more than 600 ports in the United States, is now collaborating with Hysucat, the preeminent hydrofoil supported catamarans builder.

The first contract between Hysucat and a Sea Tow franchisee includes a two-boat order for one Hysucat 28 RIB and one Hysucat 30 center console constructed using the patented asymmetrical catamaran hull and equipped with the latest in innovative marine propulsion, electronics, accessories and safety equipment.

“Our operators have recognized the benefits of utilizing catamaran vessels for nearly two decades now. Hysucat has taken catamaran technology to the next level with innovative designs that prove to be more economical, stable and safe. “said Sea Tow CEO, Captain Joseph Frohnhoefer III.

“We are proud to work with Sea Tow which will allow the innovative Hysucat vessels to be used throughout the United States, not only for recreational purposes, but for commercial scopes too.” stated Ken Comfort, Hysucat sales manager.

The design and performance of Hysucats make them ideally suited for Sea Tow 24/7 marine services, which include serving the recreational boater on the water with towing, salvage, vessel recovery, environmental cleanup, and catastrophe response.

Built in center console, fast RIB, water transport and military models, the Hysucat offers the best features of a monohull and a catamaran combined. At high speed, the boat rises out of the water, yet is extremely stable. The Hysucat is more efficient and can run with smaller engines than an equivalent-sized monohull. As well, the technology at the core of the Hysucat brand also enables safe, high-speed performance in excess of 70 knots. These boats are ideal for the range of services provide by Sea Tow and all the conditions they typically encounter, whether traveling offshore, into the shallow or operating in heavy weather, Sea Tow Captains can be confident in the performance of their Hysucat vessels. Additionally, load-carrying capacity makes its models perfect for water transport, taxi operations, sea rescue, and towing operations.
