Great Fishing machine!!! The World Cat rides on a pair of semi-displacement hulls rather then the higher speed, (rougher riding) planing hulls used by some builders. This boat slices through 4 foot seas confidently and comfortably!  The construction material and workmanship of the 246 are very good, and the deck layout, with its generous storage capacity is completely uncluttered. There is a walk-in storage area with open access to labeled wiring for helm electronics, wrap around windshield, loaded with redundant electronics including Northstar 951X, Northstar 6100i, Furuno Color Video Sounder FCV-582, System Monitor, Navman Fuel 3100, Standard Horizon VHF with Remote Speakers, Stereo Remote, Compass and more!! Unlike a monohull the wide foredeck of the World Cat has room for a couple of anglers to work in relative freedom with both port and starboard rod storage, rod holders, rocket launchers, tackle compartment, cutting boards, live well, bait well, and more this boat is ready for the avid fisherman while simultaneously providing for a comfortable family cruiser. This boat has been dry stored and covered since new.  Full canvas boat and engine cover included.  Pre Wired for windlass, newer batteries, double fuel filters, salt water wash down, and more.  Includes a 12000lb trailer with new tires. 

Powered with twin 2001 Optimax 150's, topping out at 52MPH and cruising efficiently at 32MPH and 3600RPM getting 2.5 miles per gallon total fuel.

Fast, Efficient, Comfortable, and definitely ready to go Fishing!!!
