Powercat 525: Catamaran Powerboat
The best power catamaran of its size on the water
Just as at home on the open ocean as it is patrolling rivers and inland waterways, the combination of economy, safety, comfort and versatility make Powercat the perfect choice for commercial and leisure activity boating.
Powercat’s twin hull design provides exceptional stability and fuel economy even in extremely testing sea conditions. The fine bows cut into the waves while the unique hull shape gently lifts the boat to give an incredibly soft ride, and with more usable space for people and kit. Twin engines provide excellent performance and enhanced safety with power in reserve (Powercats can also run comfortably using one engine). Quick-draining decks and built-in buoyancy enable the Powercat 525 to handle the roughest water, taking on conditions only larger conventional boats would tackle.
The Powercat 525 can be beached, left on a mooring (with confidence that it won’t fill up) and is also easily launched, trailered and towed, adding to its versatility. No wonder it’s the first choice for Harbour Authorities and other commercial operators, as this boat does it all.
Quite simply, the Powercat 525 is the best boat of its class for any application.
