The international newsletter on advanced undersea & surface craft From the publishers of Ocean News & Technology Magazine
"Out of the dozens of personal watercraft coming on the market today, AMV believes the CraigCat® to be one of the most exciting."
Pontoon & Deckboat National Magazine
"Economy and fun are usually opposite of each other … Look at what Craig Catamaran has put together in its CraigCat™ — An economical craft that turns on a dime and runs at respectable speeds. The CraigCat® seats two adults comfortably … This 11 foot 4 inch patented craft grew out of 30 years of development encompassing aviation technology. "When we tested the CraigCat® at the 1998 shootout, the craft, with two passengers, cornered exceptionally well. We were surprised at how the craft managed to lift over oncoming chop while cornering tightly as it did at the same time. True catamaran hulls usually operate off of a reverse bank when cornering, but the CraigCat® works just the opposite … the craft bows into the turn rather than out. The CraigCat® tracks well."
Rodale’s Scuba Diving National Magazine
"Yee-ha! Jumping through waves and outfitted with tank racks, the sleek CraigCat® looks more like a prototype assault vehicle than a dive boat … Strap four tanks and a buddy to the CraigCat® to beat the cattle-boat blues."
Multi Hulls International Magazine
"They are in their own right Multi Hulls with a purpose. These boats are for fun: they are economical, lightweight, portable, safe, and unsinkable."
Trailer Boats National Magazine
"CraigCat™ aquatic armchair … The CraigCat® goes well beyond its design parameters … The Cat is at home on just about any water. Two impact-resistant pontoons provide a stable and virtually unsinkable platform. We discovered this fact first hand when a large powerboat ran circles around the catamaran, attempting to capsize it. No problem, boat wakes and fairly choppy conditions were handled with equal aplomb."
Houseboat National Magazine
"The CraigCat® seats two adults comfortably … we tested the CraigCat® … and were pleasantly surprised at it handling ability and performance-with a crew of two it turned on a dime, lifted nicely over oncoming chop and cornered beautifully. It’s equipped with horizontal pontoons … this enables the vessel to climb over wakes and rough waves instead of plowing through them. While underway, the vessel collect’s water and forces it through its center, giving it a keel line without actually having a keel … on the whole it's one of the best water fun machines on the market."
