Designed by longtime catamaran builder Forrest Munden, the Sea Cat 260 performs dual fishing duties inshore and offshore. The boat draws only 14 inches, but offers big-water capability, Sea Cat says.

The large forward casting platform (trolling motor optional) features room for three anglers to fish. Heading aft, you’ll find two 7-foot fish/rod boxes recessed in the deck that are plumbed with overboard pumps and drains. The raw-water washdown system comes with 20 feet of coiled hose and a nozzle.

At the transom, the 260 comes with two lighted 25-gallon livewells and a fold-down bench for two. Two large bilge-access areas make it easy to service belowdecks pumps.


The console can accommodate two 12-inch electronics displays. All upholstery is custom-fabricated by Llebroc Industries.

Options include a custom fiberglass top, SeaStar EPS steering, forward livewell, a 10-gallon freshwater tank, and additional rod holders. The 260 carries 120 gallons of fuel and can handle twin outboards from 140 hp to 300 hp, for a maximum of 600 hp.
