Default New Doug Wright 35 Light speed Completed...

Doug is just wrapping up the new enhanced 35' high performance catamaran with an extended drive bustle. This boat has the raised engine hatch to allow for the 1500hp twin turbo powerplants. this model will have the twin front buckets and a 3 person rear bench. It has the open cockpit option. We all are expecting big things from this proven winning hull but in a sterndrive . If anyone wants a stylish high tech state of the art proven catamaran that will be very fast and safe even on warrantied insurable mercury power this is your boat. only 6 will be available this year. Going down to the plant in 2 weeks, will get pics and let everyone know about the test runs, Wiggler

I'm also wondering about the "will be very fast and safe" in Wiggler's statement. What specifically will keep you safe in this open cockpit boat in the event of a high speed rollover or stuff?

it doesn't have quarter canopies, but more of a wrap around windshield... and i rather not have my head hit anything at a high rate of speed..

Why such larger power on the first boat? Let's see what it does with 525's

Nice lines, just like an MTI....

I agree, let's see some numbers with Merc 525's, 600's or new 700's.

the first stern drive model had 700's and sixes, but not the same cockpit configuration, kind of a canopy with a big sunroof...

this boat was sold to a customer who already had the motors, no question it will be stupid fast, probably capable of well over 180 if someone had the balls , the boat is also available in full canopy with hatches, but my goal and Doug's is to do exactly as you guys are saying keep the power down even to 496 ho's possibly to keep it insurable with mild reliable power, that is more affordable, but still looks cool, performs well, our first will have mild power in it.

Boat looks beautiful. If it handles anything like the 32 it will be a winner for sure. With 1500's (power/weight) the acceleration should be supurb... Is the new owner in CA? Bling? Is Grant rigging?

Love to see it come to LOTO.

Cograts Doug!!

Are the running surface dimensions the same on the 35' as the 32'?
