Have you been enticed by all the talk of how catamarans are taking a percentage of the big V bottom market? Have you noticed how lots of manufacturers are rushing designs to the market? Take a serious look at this 42 Prowler Cat. The bottom was derived from a race proven hull so it handles much different that the big cats from Invincible, World Cat, Freeman, and a hand full of others. One look at the sponsons and you know this cat means business, while most are symmetrical or modified inner strakes this cat is just like a Skater or MTI hull bottom. This allows the boat to turn flatter and lean in instead of the annoying traits of the others, really doesn't care head beam or following sea directions like some do and still handle seas way better than any V bottom could hope for. 4-6 foot seas are a joke and easy to handle without having to fight the boat. a cruise speed in the 40's may not sound like much until you realize you are doing it when the other big V's are slowing to the 20's with everyone getting beat up.
The boat is huge inside with a flat floor, unlike the step floor in a Freeman or others. That never sounds like a big deal until you miss the step or trip on it moving around. There are two rows of seating under the huge hardtop and massive front lounges for the days when it is family time. Inside the roomy console is a marine head. The back of the boat has a big platform with dive ladder.
The big cat will hit low 50's with twin warrantied power too, you don't need the maintenance or cost of three and four motors nor the ill handling characteristics they create. Cruise speed is in the 40's and you can hit 1.2-1.3 mpg, an awesome number for a boat this size. Try that with a big V-bottom like a 42 Hydra-Sports that will basically run the same top speed with 4 350 hp engines and deliver a whopping .5 mpg!
The Mercury Verado 350 engines have about 570 hours with Platinum warranty to 2-12-23 so that is hug piece of mind. Because the engines are spread so far apart you eliminate the need and cost for a bow thruster when docking too.
This boat is much bigger inside than the 42-44 offings in the V-bottom market because of the rectangular shape, so there is tons of room for the fishing, cruising or family outings. All this with twin engine power and upkeep. Storage is everywhere too. Load it for the Bahama trips and then everyone enjoy the ride, seas be damned.
The Prowler is ready to fish hard too. Two transom live wells with glass sides, huge tackle storage with prep area and sink, massive floor fish boxes, Taco Grand Slam outriggers, Fresh and raw water wash downs, side gunwale rod storage and a killer wrap that will impress everyone!
The 42 is loaded up with options like custom SeaDeck flooring, Twin 7616xsv Garmin displays for GPS,Fish and Radar, Garmin open array Fantom 4 radar, VHF radio, Sirius radio, Weather, huge Fusion stereo with amps and 12 JL audio speakers, Garmin Reactor Autopilit, Flir night vision camera, Anchorlift windlass with remote and anchor rode counter and remote, 40lb polished stainless anchor with 600' of rode and 40' of chain, 4 LED underwater lights, shore power, and battery charger. It has almost everything not sure what else can be added to the boat!
The boat has a boat cover and trailer included in the price. Why pay close to a million dollars or more and still not reap the benefits of this high performance design. Plus the wait for new is long. Get out today on the water and save hundreds of thousands on this beauty!
