This 28 foot powerful catamaran/tunnel hull design takes advantage of many of the performance features of a deep “V” and combines them with the stability of a cat hull making great for recreational fishing.

The design features a center console with spray shield and adequate seating for six. There’s also plenty of stowage for fishing gear. A fighting chair can be rigged on the after deck the serious fisherman.

The CATFish is powered by twin 200hp outboard engines. The structure could either be fabricated in aluminum or “sandwich” construction using E-glass in a vinyl ester resin matrix. An efficient use of Kevlar and carbon fiber in high load areas give the boat an optimum strength-to-weight ratio.
