One hull offers many boats


California-based Hydracraft has launched a patented vessel featuring a variable hull that allows the customer to change the hull from a deep-vee to a modified vee to a flat bottom or into a multi-hull in less than 1 minute while under way.

The company is now looking for recreational and defense boat builders to manufacture them.

“Now that we’ve been granted numerous U.S. and international patents we are able to take off our cloak of secrecy, and unveil our technology that allows the buyer to make a much easier buying decision,” said Hydracraft founder and CEO Hal Syfritt. “Why should buyers have to choose only one boat from so many when they can have so many boats in one?”

Hydracraft has created a modular manufacturing process that allows for repetitive manufacturing in low volume production, producing zero emissions, according to a company statement.
