290-295 Dual Console
Length w/ Pulpit:
A popular model, the World Cat 295 Dual Console (called the 290 Dual Console in 200913) combines a family-friendly layout with the cushioned ride long associated with a catamaran. Dual console boats are designed for versatility, and the World Cats shallow draft and excellent seakeeping ability make her a great boat for both shallow-water exploring and offshore fishing. With double-wide helm seats with flip-up bolsters, cushioned bow seating, dual aft fold-down seats, and enclosed head/change room, the 290/295 DC can accommodate as many as 10 people. Fishing features include a 30-gallon livewell abaft the port seat, 46-gallon fish box and bait prep center behind the captains seat, and under-gunnel rod storage. An optional entertainment package with refrigerator, stainless steel sink, and portable propane grill replaces the port livewell. A center transom door provides access to the swim platform between the outboards. In a 2014 update, World Cat engineers elevated the space between the two sponsons by deepening the hull resulting in modest performance gains. Yamaha F250 outboards cruise at 25 knots (about 40 knots top).
