Catamaran builder World Cat has introduced its new flagship 400DC-X, the initial model of an expected 400 Series, created in partnership with Tampa Yachts. This first dual-console layout can be built with one of 12 transom designs with port and starboard modules abaft the centerline transom door. Captains can also choose vinyls, fabrics, hard-surface materials and custom colors for a build-to-order boat.

The 400DC-X’s wide beam provides more than 200 square feet of usable deck space. The broad bow area seats up to 12 adults and comes with two electrically actuated tables. The port console houses an air-conditioned queen berth; the starboard console is outfitted with a head and walk-in shower.

Standard features include the integrated hardtop with sunroof and electric aft-cockpit shade, helm space for two optional 17-inch ­multifunction displays, an entertainment center with a drawer fridge, and a hot and cold aft‑deck shower wand.

The DC-X, while more cruise-centric, can be configured as a luxury sport-fishing vessel with customized options, World Cat says. The 464-gallon fuel tank gives it plenty of range.
