With its dual-stepped, semi-asymmetric hulls, the 34 CT is a new-school cat that shows up and shows out. Powered by twin Mercury V-10 400 hp outboards, this boat delivers impressive acceleration and effortlessly handles challenging conditions. At 4,000 rpm and 36.7 mph, it achieved 1.2 mpg in our test. That efficiency equates to a cruising range of more than 400 miles, even with 10 percent of its 436-gallon fuel capacity left in reserve.
When it comes to fishing, the Caymas 34 CT offers a range of features. The spacious and stable deck provides a secure footing. With our toes tucked in the deck gutters and our thighs pressing the thick gunwale bolsters, we could focus on handling the rod or gaff, not staying on our feet. There are three livewells, six fish boxes (three per side) with macerator pumps and plenty of rod holders (six in each gunwale, five shotguns, nine tuna-stick hangers under the gunwales, and nine more shared between the hardtop and leaning post).
Fishing-wise, it’s apparent Caymas put the right people on the design team. But the designers and upholsterers get their kudos on the comfort side as well. A pullout transom seat and dual forward pullout lounges offer comfortable seating to complement the dual chaise-style lounges on the console’s front side. Under those posh cushions is a ton of storage or another fish box, as you choose. Every deck compartment is insulated for multi-use.
