Power Catamarans boats
Power catamarans are multihull power boats that are increasingly popular due to their stability, maneuverability and comfortable ride. They also have more deck and cabin space than traditional monohull power boats, due to the fact they have dual hulls. They make great fishing boats, and excellent pleasure and day boats due to ample deck space.
How are Power Catamarans built?
The two hulls of a power catamaran are designed to cut through waves with less drag, thus increasing fuel efficiency and ride comfort. Many modern power catamarans are built with stepped hulls and utilize vented hull technology. These vessels range in size from 19 feet to over 100 feet.
What type of engines power Power Catamarans?
Smaller power catamarans are mostly all powered by outboard motors mounted on the rear transom. Power options vary, but generally range from a single 100 HP motor up to triple or quad outboards and can achieve very high cruising and top speeds. Larger power catamarans are often powered by inboard engines and some are even powered by jet propulsion.
What optional equipment is available for Power Catamarans?
Optional equipment for power catamarans includes typical fishing gear such as fish finders, rod holders, riggers, navigation equipment, radar, premium marine sound systems, head, galley, luxury seating/upholstery, appliances and more. Larger, luxury power catamarans are often equipped with private staterooms, heads (marine toilets), premium upholstery, numerous entertainment options such as hot tubs, televisions, marine stereo systems and more.
