Following on the heels of its stylishly designed 280 center-console catamaran, World Cat has introduced a new dual-console model. “The dual-console market needed a new and improved design, so we have integrated some unique features aboard our proven catamaran design,” says Andrew Brown, World Cat CEO.

The X series delivers a unique tumblehome transom and a lower shear line than traditional cat designs. The DC also adds a frameless glass windshield into the new-look equation.

The DC features a fiberglass top with hand-finished surfboard edge and a powder-coated frame, spreader lights and LED underside lights. The fiberglass-lined head compartment offers standing headroom for most, and is fitted with a Corian counter, mirror, toiletry-storage area, fresh- water system, and marine head with a 10-gallon holding tank.

Additional standard equipment includes bow seating for six and a through-hull windlass system. The wide-open cockpit features bolsters, four gunwale rod holders and a transom tuna door. World Cat also offers an optional 20-gallon livewell.
