8.6m Alloy Planing Cat

8.6m Alloy Planing Cat

Simple kit set construction

This has been our most popular small planing cat design with boats built in several countries around the world, all with happy and satisfied owners.

Produced form a CNC cut kit set the assembly is straight foreward and simple although a good level of welding and genral engineering skill is required.

Primarily intended for outboards there is a small inboard diesel version available and also a stretched version at 9.4m with inboards, the longer boat giving a full length settee in the saloon and full length quarter berths on the lower deck.

At just under 3m beam it is trailerable. All in all a very good entry level small cruising and fishing boat, ideal for someone wanting to step up from a smaller trailerable runabout.
