World Cat introduces new centre console model

World Cat 260CC-X centre console

World Cat Boats, producer of power catamarans, has added the 260CC-X centre console to its model line-up. Planned for release in 2023, the company is already taking pre-production orders.

The 260CC-X will be the sixth model in the centre console line-up and the fifth ‘X’ series introduced by World Cat. This 25ft model features a standard wraparound U-lounge bow, ample rod storage, and a full transom fold-down bench seat that is convertible to a flush, aft casting deck. It has an integrated powder-coated aluminium frame and windshield system with a manual forward vent, and a fibreglass T-top featuring an array of LED lights.

“When designing the 260CC-X we knew there was a market need within our own model offering for this new 260CC-X, but we also wanted this model to showcase the innovation World Cat is known for,” says World Cat’s vice president of sales & marketing, Chad Armstrong. “With the popularity of our X series over the years, initially debuted with our 28ft centre and dual console models, we maintained the hull design for optimum performance and styling while loading the model with features topside. The convertible transom bench, combined with the rod holders in the gunwale and side console, fish boxes, livewell, tackle storage, as well as the leaning post with rocket launchers and 65-quart Yeti cooler also showcase the all-around fishability of this model. We are extremely excited for all that this new model has to offer.”

The new 260CC-X has an approximate draft of 14” which, the company says, allows customers the ability to fish inshore as well as having performance, stability, and safety offshore.

Optional features on the model include a T-top mounted LED forward light bar, removable/fold-away bow-seating backrests, quick release fender holders, an electric marine head with an eight-gallon holding tank and overboard discharge, and T-top rocket launchers with a ski tow frame upgrade.

Headquartered in Tarboro, North Carolina, World Cat manufactures outboard-powered centre and dual console catamaran models ranging from 23ft to 40ft. The first 260CC-X model will be on display at the Suncoast Boat Show to be held in Sarasota, 22-24 April.
