New to the UK, Aluminum catamarans from Kingfisher Powercats. Kingfisher produce a range of ‘Minicats’ from 3.7m to 5.1m, and ‘Powercats’ from 6.2m to 15m.
Unlike many other powered catamarans, the Minicats are driven by single outboards mounted between the two hulls. Designer Kim Bertelsen put much time and thought into this process; "We've done plenty of experimenting with the tunnels and the characteristics of the hulls and deadrise. We've also come up with a good way to help direct water flow over the propeller and avoid cavitation". This ensures that there is no ventilation to the propellers and no problem getting the boats up on to the plane - the boats go exceptionally well with modest horsepower.
Aside from the Minicats, there are the outboard powered 620 and 670 Powercats, which, like the Minicats are trailerable. PDL Fabrications also currently have in build a 10m inboard powered aluminium catamaran from the Kingfisher range. These versatile boats are a fantastic platform for leisure boating, recreational fishing, commercial fishing, as launches, for transporting goods and as maintenance vessels for coastal commercial businesses.
