Livingston LV12 from World Cat

Highly versatile, you can order an LV12 as either a big open catamaran skiff or as a center console with an optional seat. Either way, you get a small boat that has lots of room – not to mention a lot of stability, a shallow draft, a rugged interior and hull, and the smooth ride all World Cat boats are famous for.

Highlights include:

  • A wide 5’2” beam for greater stability
  • As a skiff with a tiller, the LV12 can handle a 15 HP outboard – as a console option, you can order a 20 HP remote engine with controls
  • The LV12 offers greater load bearing capacity, a shallower draft, quicker planing and a smoother ride than conventional monohull skiffs
