Why buy a cat?

Ever wondered what the benefits of a cat are over a monohulled boat? Why you should choose a catamaran over a monohull? What’s better?

More beam:

More beam means more useable space inside and around the decks. Without the ‘pointed’ shape of the bow of a monohull, a cat gains considerable space forward where our casting decks are.  This gives a massive advantage when it comes to usable space nd is why they have such fantastic fishability.

Stability:

Twin hulls focus the buoyancy around the outside of the boat, rather than in the middle, creating much greater stability. Catamarans are generally more stable in rough seas and are less likely to roll.

Less HP needed:

Our cats have up to 6 pontoons and only use up 250mm of water making them plane with virtually no acceleration. What does this mean? This means that you need less HP and get better fuel economy out of your cat compared to traditional monohulls.

Benefits of a cat

More volume:

With a bigger beam that travels all the way forward our cats get up to 15% more volume compared to a mono hull which gives you more usable space for casting, fishing and storage in your boat

Benefit of cat

Cats provide significant advantages over their monohulled counterparts, smooth riding, more volume, better economy and unbeatable stability

  1. Jesper Colding,

    Great boats and website.

    I wonder if it’s possible to make the 570 more leisure and lounge friendly. As a fishing setup it looks awesome, but for those days where you just want to cruise and lounge and have a chilled day what is possible. Turn the casting deck at the bow into a sun deck with cushions? A table ? Mounting a small bbq on the rails? Extending the swim platform? Shades?

    • Laura,

      Hi Jesper,

      Thanks so much for the comment and feedback! We can do all sorts – I know of one customer who was planning to put a bean bag on the front casting deck to read a book while out! You could absolutely put sunshade extensions, tables, BBQ – get in touch and we can look into these options for you 🙂
