TOPCAT - EUROFIRST FOR CHEETAH AND SEASTAR M411A
9.2m Topcat is the first boat in Europe to feature two of Seastar’s Optimus 360 joystick control systems. With a choice of control stations, new owner Cliff Poulter can manoeuvre Topcat using the slow speed, sideways motion which assists docking in confined marinas and berths.
New Owners, Cliff and Chris Poulter comment:
‘After seeing many powered catamarans whilst travelling in New Zealand, we started to look around the UK for a catamaran to replace our cabin RIB. Much to our surprise we found Cheetah Marine at Ventnor on the Isle of Wight. Cheetah Marine’s capability to tailor their craft meant that our exact requirements were met. As well as being used as a day boat for entertaining friends and family we required long-range cruising capabilities.’
TopCat features twin 300 litre fuel tanks which provide a 300 mile range at moderate cruising speeds with top speeds of 40 knots.
