The new look Hydrus

Updated: Jan 27

Production of the slightly tweaked in design Hydrus III is well under way. It's always nice to see photos of the boats under construction so the eagerly waiting customers that have pre ordered them have something to look forward to. These are the photos that Feny from Chinawand took.


IBF is heading in to year 3 already. It's gone so quickly since the beginning of the Facebook advice group. At the time I knew this was what I wanted to do in my endeavour to promote the sport of inflatable boat fishing. I wasn't in my wildest dreams expecting the boats to look this good and for them to be so popular. I've been totally blown away.


The only difference between the Hydrus II and III is the different colour rubbing strake. It's gone from red to white and I've scrapped the 4m air deck as advised by the factory. They do tend to lose rigidity if at speed when a 25hp engine is used.


The new batch of boats are due in the UK end of February, beginning of March. Here's a sneaky peek.
