World Cat Catamarans are designed with VectorFlo tunnel Shaping on the hull and a hydrodynamic design. This means that the weight is distributed accurately throughout the craft, even though the bow is higher off the water than the stern. Additionally, boats receive a vinylester barrier coat, a skin coat of fiberglass, water shock woven cloth, and enhanced flotation insulation. Overall, the company has presented quite a few techniques to maximize the longevity of the boat’s materials as well as minimize the damages to the hull through their manufacturing process.
Mono or Twin Hull
One of the unique features of the World Cat is the twin hull design. Monohulls which are offered by other companies are more taxing on the captain and on the boat as they tend to be deep v shaped designes. The twin hull design appears as though you have two bows to the ship, though you only have one. This design allows for a non-pivoting center line on the craft, an air-lock shock absorber, a higher fuel efficiency, and greater load capacities.
Buyers should be aware that the double/twin hull design of the boat makes for a rather large beam, and though the company states that the design allows for the boat to go into places where a monohull cannot, the design also limits the craft from going into narrow spaces where a mono can. It is a give and take on the design to usability and seating capacity. Those who wish to have higher seating capacities and wish to fish in the open waters of the Ocean are more apt to find that this is a suitable brand then those who are seeking World Cat boats for sale to use on large lakes with only a few friends.
Award winning features
World Cat is the first outboard-powered boat to win the Bermuda Challenge. This challenge requires that a boat navigate the waters of the Atlantic starting at Virginia and running to Bermuda Nonstop. Considering that the boats are equipped with only 2 outboard motors this is quite an achievement. However, the company continued to push the limits of the boat with 1328 runs for the Pacific Challenge and a 2700 mile run up to the Coast of Alaska. The latest and most notable run that a World Cat boat for sale has accomplished is a 8,400 mile trip from Seattle Washington to Portland Main in 2003-2004.
