Sometimes family features take precedence over center console fishing features and that’s where a dual console interior layout will shine. When you open up the center of the boat’s cockpit the amount of usable deck space is incredible. The huge aft cockpit allows enough room for flip-down jump seats and an entertainment galley complete with sink, pullout drawers and a stainless steel fridge. Going forward, the split consoles offer protection from wind and rain, especially when the walkthrough windshield is closed. The door on the port side passenger console allows you to step down into the sponson for a standup head. Additional passengers can enjoy an L-shaped lounge or sit forward of the windshield on padded bow seating.
I’ve been on a variety of boats in all sizes, shapes, styles and speeds. With this experience, I believe that a power catamaran is the best riding boat for the steep chop often stirred up by the Gulf of Mexico. When a forecast similar to the previous week and the week ahead with nothing less than 3 foot seas, it’s probably best for most people to stay in the comfort of protected waters, unless you’re in a cat.
This isn’t just a new powercat, the 280 CC-X is a new kind of powercat. It incorporates the latest in new design and modern technology—and it’s sure to change the minds of some boaters who never considered buying a powercat in the past.
Crossing to the islands with the family for an extended stay, or venturing beyond the Gulf Stream in search of a grander marlin, you need a boat that can take all of your gear and handle some serious seas.
The World Cat 295DC is at once a boat that can take on offshore fishing, side by side with larger sportboats and center consoles, then revert to serving as a roomy day boat for friends and family, and then again revert to a dive, watersports or picnic platform.
