Hydracraft Unveils Variable Hull Design

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Hydracraft, a research and development firm incorporated in 1986 and located in the Port of Los Angeles, announced today that it is launching its fully patented "miracle boat" featuring Hydracraft's variable hull, modular technology and a cost-effective manufacturing process. The variable hull allows the customer to change the hull from a deep-v to a modified v to a flat bottom or into a multihull in less than one minute while at full speed.

Hydracraft said it is now offering exclusive licensing opportunities to recreational and defense boatbuilders worldwide, giving them a competitive advantage and market share.

"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?"

The dealers of the selected manufacturer will obtain a much easier sale, receive quicker delivery, while selling more boats and enjoying greater profits. It also appeals to a new, younger group of buyers because of its affordability, versatility and transforming technology.

For the first time in modern boat manufacturing, Hydracraft's new modular manufacturing process allows the utilization of today's low cost, repetitive manufacturing in low volume production, and is environmentally safe, producing zero emissions. It saves 50% of the labor cost and 90% of the shipping cost, and substantially lowers many of the other costs of currently building and selling boats. The technology can adapt to any manufacturer's desired signature styling.

"Hydracraft spent several years conducting both formal market research surveys and informal interviews with CEOs and Presidents of the leading companies in the marine industry to determine what are their needs, wants and challenges," said Syfritt. "Our technology is in answer to those needs and problems, and, in fact, is the very reason for Hydracraft's development and extensive international patents."
