14.9m Cat 'n' Mouse
This 14.9m semi-displacement mono-hull was specifically designed for an experienced game fisherman as his ultimate fishing and live aboard boat.
The client was seeking to develop a sleek, efficient vessel that was able to maximize his fishing range while also boasting significantly lower fuel burn than conventional sport fishers at typical trolling speeds. Importantly, he was prepared to break commonly accepted paradigms about what a 'sports fisher' should be and the result is a boat very much optimized for the role envisaged and to the requirements of the client and end user.
Featuring a CPP (controllable pitch propeller) the semi-displacement form is intended to offer excellent range and fuel efficiency at typical trolling speeds - and although not necessarily as fast as some high powered conventional game boats, the vessel is still able to cruise out and back at respectable speeds. Fitted with a tuna tower, specialist sonar, large kill tanks and frozen stores, Cat n Mouse will be a highly capable fishing vessel.
The forward accommodation area provides sleeping arrangements for up to 8, with separate head and shower spaces. The client also plans to use this vessel as a blue water passage maker, opening the door to some of the more remote game fishing locations the Pacific Ocean and beyond have to offer.
