Running down the backside of a three- foot chop, it sliced and diced
the waves like a champ. I turned downsea and the boat tracked as if it
were on rails. So I gunned the throttles and turned beam-to. My test
boat topped out near 48 mph--fast enough to catch up to those birds
diving on the horizon.

In every category we considered, Sea Cat scored at or near the top.
It rides with the best of them, goes faster than the rest, maintains
good efficiency, handles like a sports car, comes ready to fish out of
the box, and provides maximum value for the price. Plus, it's a looker.
That's why Sea Cat wins the kitty.
Boating Magazine - November 2003
Sea Cat's new 18 is twice the boat in any sea... It feels like 20
percent more LOA - trotting over a two-foot chop at 36.1 mph, the ride
felt as smooth as it would on most 22' monohulls!

Cat Back on the Prowl for Fish
Out on the water, the Sea Cat 22 handled the moderate chop fine and
stayed dry. The trapped air and water between the hulls of the Sea Cat
22 helped cushion the ride in the chop, especially at faster speeds.

Cats are Coming on Strong
The SEACAT Center Console is new
from the keel up, yet she carries on the famous Sea Cat legacy of smooth
ride and seakeeping ability. The superior ride, fuel efficiency and
stability of Sea Cat Boats helped launch the power catamaran craze in
the mid- 1990s.

Comet 20 takes on shallow and rough
On our test run on Florida's Tampa Bay, the Comet 20 cranked out
48.9 mph pushed by a Suzuki 225 EFI. Many cats of similar size pushed by
the same power in twin outboards can barely crack 40.

Battle of the Cats
Like any good flats boat, it planes almost instantly and runs in
shallow water. Relatively wide, flat hulls give the Comet 20 lift, as
proven by her 14-in. standing draft and ability to plane in 1.9 seconds.
Meanwhile, a hydraulic jackplate lowers and raises the engine, allowing
the boat to run in only 6 in. of water at full throttle.
