|A boat that looks weird
The Helicat 22 is a catamaran which has been styled to look
like a helicopter. The boat has been designed with speed and
stability in mind. Its makers say that it is particularly good
on rough waters, with the widely spaced pontoons providing a
stable platform with minimal drag.
Aside from its unique appearance, the Helicat 22 also offers
a good degree of practicality. Obviously the cabin is fairly
compact, limiting the number of people who can be carried at
any one time, but it can cope with waves which would have boats
of comparable size struggling. It has an impressive top speed
of 43 mph when fitted with the optional 90 horsepower motors.
It also has a range of over 100 miles with the standard twin
45 litre (12 gallon) fuel tanks.
The interior of the Helicat offers a single seat up front for
the driver, while in the rear a two-person bench is provided.
For a few extra bucks the fixed seats can be replaced with swiveling
units which are better suited to fishing. There are six storage
compartments dotted around the vessel, including a larger storage
area behind the rear seats capable of holding fishing rods in
the tail section. While the cockpit does offer some degree of
protection from the elements, the addition of optional clear
vinyl roll up sides makes it much better at keeping out both
wind and rain.
The Helicat can be ordered with 60-90 hp motors of your choice
or sold alone for you to select your own motors. A custom-built
aluminum trailer with LED lights and disc brakes is also available.
