That may have been the reason. We won't know until Matt sits down with Randy or has a phone interview. I say Matt because Marilyn DeMartini hasn't been very active on the marine press scene lately that I have seen.

If this boat sells well maybe Randy will use one of his cat hulls. Cobra boats in New Jersey built a 36' cat CC and it ran really well with trip 300s, I think close to 90.

You guys are on the right track. I asked Randy about that and he said the market was much broader for the V-bottom style, plus he said at slower speed/idle/etc. a V-bottom is a little more manageable.

Randy didn't rule out building a catamaran CC, but he knows from his current customers and what else is out there that the V-bottom style is the way to go to reach more people. He also expects his boat to be one that current center-console customers will "step up to."

I can't wait to see the finished product!

Thanks

PS Marilyn is pretty active in the marine scene, she handles the PR for companies such as Cigarette, Latham and Peters & May. In fact, she spent the last few days at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.

I love the layout on the boat and the windscreen design is beautiful.

With that said, look close at those renderings....that thing is SICK!!
Maybe there is no market because nobody builds a good one! All that is out there is the Advantage 34 party cat and the mares, and they are both **** for running in the ocean. I had a 28 Daytona and now have the 37 Spectre CC which I like but I hate the way V-bottoms ride, always bouncing around and constantly having to adjust tabs everytime someone farts! If Skater MTI or Nortech would build a CC cat with I/O's as well as outboard options I think it would sell very well. You would have even more space than a v hull but have the speed and handling of a cat.
