Hydroswift started in 1958 with a 15-foot outboard boat and grew into one of the largest boat manufacturers in the western states with sales reaching 1100 a year.
In the mid-70s, hydroswift fell on hard times and the future of the company looked bleak. Things finally changed in the mid-80s when they developed and patented the hydroswift hull. This hull changed the game and made fuel economy, handling, stability, and ride infinitely better. In 2004, Justin Bateman purchased Hydroswift and all its’ assets and developed new designs to update the brand. In 2008 the economy crashed and popularity for stern/outboard boats fell significantly. From 2008-2012, hydroswift only did custom boats and service, but in 2012, we came up with the idea to develop a v-drive using the hydroswift hull, and helix boats was born. We launched the first prototype in late 2017, and in 2018 refined the prototype and began production.
