Diesel Power Cat – 8.5m x 3.0m

This Cheetah Catamaran is 8.53m long, with a wide beam of 3.00m, and is fitted with a pair of powerful and efficient Diesel sterndrives. It’s commercially certified to carry up to 12 passengers, but she would equally make a fantastic fast fishing boat for leisure use…

Built by Cheetah Marine in 2003 this boat was in the same original ownership until 2020. She has been very well looked after and lightly used by a charitable trust. She has a great spec and a versatile layout (including wheelchair accessible deck) making her suited to a wide variety of uses.

The catamaran hull shape and 10′ beam means that not only is this a very stable and comfortable boat at sea, but with her narrow twin hulls she is very efficient to run and when combined with twin diesel motors she is an extremely economical boat with an impressive turn of speed when you need it.

With the safety and security of twin diesel motors and a top speed of over 30mph this Cheetah Power Cat would make a great alternative to a Jeanneau Merry Fisher, Beneteau Antares, Rodman, or similar Pilot House fast fisher. She could also be easily adapted to suit your particular needs, whether that involves adding a sea toilet, convertible berth, swim platform or additional wheelhouse seating…

Whether you’re looking for a boat to go fishing with all your buddies, take the family out on coastal day trips, or even for commercial use, this Cheetah Catamaran is well worth a look. Given that the boat is currently Commercially Certified (Category 3) until July 2022, you could immediately press her into service for charter use, sightseeing trips, fishing trips, as a drone launching platform or film boat, etc, etc. Whether that’s as a full-time role or a bit of part-time use to offset your personal boating costs. There’s lots of opportunity with this 8.5m Diesel Catamaran.

The boat was fully serviced in December 2020, with engines and sterndrives serviced, new anodes, new props and hull antifouled. It’s in great condition and ready to go the 2021 season.

The boat is very seriously for sale and available for viewing anytime. The owner is open to offers.

To get the full low down on this boat you should watch the full length 35 minute long video review on our website at www.gulfstreamboatsales.com. It goes into more detail than you can imagine, but it’s intended to give you almost as good a look at this boat as you’d have if you came to see it in person.
