Catamaran Boats in Florida The Tahitian

At Craig Cat, we know that both style and functionality matter. Our catamaran boats in Florida are exceptionally well-built and come in an array of different styles. All Craig Cat boats deliver a rare blend of sport boat performance and genuine comfort. Some of our models include the Camo Edition, Key West Edition and of course, our new model for 2017…The Tahitian.

 

Transport yourself to the pacific with our Tahitian style compact boat. Did you know, Polynesians actually invented the catamaran boat? In case you aren’t familiar, a catamaran is a multi-hulled watercraft featuring two parallel hulls of equal size. Polynesians invented the first catamaran boat to travel the pacific islands. The two parallel hulls were logs! The founders of Craig Cat admire how the first catamaran boat was invented and acknowledged that the Polynesians invented it. That is why we created the Tahitian!

 

The Tahitian is our most recent model and it screams “Island Vibes!” The center piece of the boat is painted to look like brown and yellow bamboo pieces, which actually looks like real bamboo. The center piece has the name of the boat The Tahitian written in a flowy island font with a flower attached as part of the name, or otherwise logo. Red Hibiscus flowers can be found in at least two spots on the Tahitian. One big, beautiful flower can be found towards the end of the boat right above the stereo system. Another red Hibiscus flower can be found on the convertible top, next to the words Craig Cat. If you like the Tahitian but would prefer something other than a flower, you can replace the large hibiscus flower above the stereo with a Tahitian sun. The Tahitian model also comes with a friend…a cute green lizard that is part of the theme. That little guy is placed next to the hibiscus flower above the stereo.

 

The seats in the Tahitian are cream and tan colored, which match well with the bamboo centerpiece. The Tahitian stands out from all the other Craig Cat catamaran boats in Florida because of its island style. To get down to the nitty-gritty see all the standard features below!

CraigCat Catamaran boats are very versatile. There is great flexibility with the number of add on’s, upgrades and customizing you can do with this type of boat. You can add deluxe seating, beverage holders, utility racks, and quite a few awesome fishing specific add-ons. Many of our customers use their Catamaran Boats for fishing trips, so we want to offer all the add-ons that they may need. Since the CraigCat is so versatile, adding/ taking off fishing accessories is simple! Check out what fishing accessories we currently offer…

Wing Storage Racks– Assuming you’ve seen the CraigCat Catamaran Boats, you can see that it is a compact design.There is enough space to store your favorite fishing gear and a small cooler, which is one reason the CraigCat is so awesome! Once you purchase your boat from CraigCat, you can decide if you need more storage. Fisherman need space for their tackle box and gear, which is why we have created wing storage racks that customers can purchase as an add-on. The racks are 1’ X 2’ and located on both sides of the boat. The racks are placed in the perfect spot where you can conveniently create the space to change fishing lures and get your pole ready.

Elevated Fishing Seat- YOU’LL LOVE THIS! The standard CraigCat models come with two seats which are in the style of a “low rider.” If you love to fish, you probably know that it’s difficult to fish while being low to the ground. You need to be standing or elevated so you cast the pole properly. Well, we got you covered with our elevated fishing seat! You can quickly and easily replace either the driver or passenger seat with the elevated fishing seat. With a Kingpin System, the stainless steel base plate and aluminum post attached to the seat is MEANT for trolling purposes.

Electric Trolling Motor Mount- An electric trolling motor mount is one of the most useful pieces of equipment you can install on your boat. This type of motor can be used as the primary motor in moving your boat around or it can be used as a backup motor. Trolling motors are great for fishing boats because you can navigate around the water quietly and at a slow pace. Our electric trolling motor mount is made for trolling motors up to 30lbs of thrust.

Fishing Rod Holder- Often times fishermen use multiple fishing poles to maximize their chances of catching fish. It’s hard to handle multiple poles, which is why we created a fishing rod holder that can be easily added to any of our boats. It holds four rods and reels and is an aluminum frame with polyethylene rod holders. The perfect compliment to any fishing enthusiasts boat.

7 Benefits of Catamaran Boats

CraigCat Power Catamarans offer the fun, stability, comfort, ease of handling and amenities that you will not find on any other watercraft in the world.

1. Less fatigue
CraigCat power catamarans offer the only built in suspension system in the marine industry. In choppy conditions the hulls move independent of each other giving the driver an passenger a much smoother ride than your typical small boat.

2. Stability
The CraigCat is unsinkable and extremely stable. Two 200 lb persons can stand on one side with very little list. The unbelievable stability also give the CraigCat a very comfortable safe dry ride that is extremely fun to drive.

3. Cruise in shallow water
CraigCats literally float on top of the water with a draft of only 14 inches with the engine down and 3 inches with the engine up the CraigCat can go just about anywhere! Great for flats fishing, cruising around islands, and exploring your favorite places. Try that with any other compact power boat…

4. The opportunity to swim
Because of the stability and lack of free board to scale over, the CraigCat is very easy to get on and get off of. This freedom allows you to go swimming, snorkeling and diving very easy.

6. Uninhibited View
The CraigCat gives you an uninhibited view of everything around you. The experience actually immerses you in your environment like no other power boat in the world.

7. Better handling
In conventional boats, you begin to worry when the conditions get harsh, their instability and the fact that a regular old bath-tub style boat can take on water can get scary even in regular conditions you have to be careful. In the world of CraigCat catamarans, our boats are unsinkable,  cannot take on water and perform very well in rough conditions. Catamaran Boats from the Craig Catamaran Corporation handle these extreme conditions far better than the monohull.
