The X-Cat is the ultimate multi-sport catamaran. Sail, row, swim, and motor! This boat makes for the perfect all around family boat. Go sailing on high wind days with the kids, go rowing for fun or to get/keep in shape, or slap a trolling motor on it and take it out to your favorite fishing or swimming holes.
The X-Cat is the most bang for your buck sailboat in existence, no other boat offers this many functions all while doing everything very well. Most boats that offer the same or similar functions to the X-Cat are jack-of-all-trades, but masters-of-none. The X-Cat is a master of all!
The X-Cat boasts world class beach cat sailing for 1-2 adults, think of this boat like a sports car. Solo sailing on this boat is an absolute dream, and this boat is a rocket ship. With two adults or one adult and two kids this boat is fast and fun, but extremely stable. In winds as high as 30 knots this boat will keep both hulls planted in the water. This boat offers the largest safe wind window for new sailors. This boat ghosts along in light winds perfectly, and when the wind picks up the fun increases, but safety is never compromised!
As a row boat, this is the near perfect boat. With a physically fit rower you can expect 7-9 knots of speed out of the RowVista system with very low effort, this system actually makes it easier to row for longer distances. The rowing system stores perfectly behind the hiking seats when not in use, so you don't have to pick between rowing or sailing...pick both! Also what a perfect workout regimen, row for 45 minutes, and your reward? Sail home! If that wasn't enough, the X-Cat is also the perfect boat for long distance rowing, because you can stand up, stretch and carry tons of cargo, because it is over 7' wide! If you aren't a sailor, after you row out to a beautiful sunrise, do some yoga, then row home!
The X-Cat offers an optional outboard bracket for use with a trolling motor or engine up to 3 hp. This makes this boat perfect for fishing and swimming. Take a few friends out past the muddy bottom of your local river or lake. This boat draws very little water and can be launched and retrieved from any beach! The lack of need for a trailer makes this boat perfect for the recreational fisherman! With side rail FASTen/ Borika mounts, you can attach nearly anything, including rod holders, camera mounts, and even navigation light mounts.
