HydroSim is an amazing (and free) Unlimited hydroplane racing simulator developed by Scott Przybylski from San Diego, CA that allows anyone to see what it takes to (virtually) drive one of our 3000 horsepower Unlimiteds from the safety of your computer desk!
HydroSim allows you to use your mouse, keyboard, wheel and pedal or other custom controls to drive your hydro, and will even support VR for an immersive experience!
Begin by styling your hydro either as a real or fantasy livery – it’s your boat, so paint it how you like it! Once you have the look, you can experiment with setting up your own boat or download some pre-made setups to try.
Once you are on the water and up to speed, you’ll get a taste for what our drivers do in real life – keep the throttle planted while flying the boat with the canard – it’s definitely not as easy as it looks!
Once you get the hang of driving your Unlimited, you can tune it for acceleration, speed and handling just like the real thing, with these parameters able to be changed:
With all of the adjustments, the boat can be set up for different courses, different lanes, even different competitors and through the process of changing your setups, you can get a feel for what the changes do on the real boats.
All of our current circuits are modeled in HydroSim, as well as some historic courses, and if you join the SNHL (below), you can even participate in a season-long chase for the Championship against some very tough competition that includes current and former outboard, inboard and even Unlimited drivers.
