This vessel is a catamaran which makes a much more comfortable ride offshore and choppy waters. This boat would be a great family and or fishing boat, that holds up to 8 people. This boat could also be used for skiing or tubing, which makes it much more enjoyable for family trips. If used for fishing it would have a good range to reach the better more fertile fishing grounds. This boat is powered by reliable twin Yamaha four stroke 115 horsepower outboards. All in all, I believe this boat is going make an all around great boat.
