Twin Vee qualifies as one of the rolled-edge
catamaran manufacturers with quality good enough to account for the company’s staying power.
Based in Port St. Lucie, Florida, Twin Vee has, until now, offered only smaller skiffs.
This 26-footer marks the company’s entry into the big-boat market. The 26 (like its new 22-foot sibling) features a large, airy cabin with a true queen-sized berth,
freshwater sink, portable head and mammoth storage spaces.
As you might expect from a successful catamaran line, the Twin Vee provides superb head-sea handling ability.
The hand-laminated, 24-ounce woven, roving fiberglass and polyester resins combined with a foam-filled hull make this Twin Vee the only
unsinkable, self-bailing catamaran on the market in this size range.
In fact, they’re the only ones backed with a lifetime hull warranty.
The Twin Vee 26 Weekender comes with a maximum power rating of twin 150-hp outboards considerably less than the max power rating on a
comparable monohull. However, you’ll find she runs extremely well with more conservative power.
You can run the company demo boat with a pair of Suzuki 115-hp four-strokes at this month’s Miami Boat Show.
If you compare prices to other 26-foot outboard boats, expect the Twin Vee to hit your purse far more gently than most.
But if you really want to be impressed, arrange a test drive on one preferably on a snotty day when you normally wouldn’t want to go boating.
That’s when your purchase decision will likely be made for you.
