Having manufactured some 1000 planing hulled cats of various sizes up to 8 meter boats since 1983, we saw the need and potential for a boat with more space, comfort of ride and range. The 38 Sport was based on experience gained from many thousands of miles onboard “Bitec”, launched in 1995, which was used for long-range family expeditions. It is a motor-sailer with 2 x 27HP diesel inboards. While this boat has above average performance for its type, it was realized that a light boat with slightly more power would be fast – the outboard versions were born. “Castle Lager” a 38 Sport Fish version motored from Port Alfred to Kenya, as this is its home port, proved the viability of using outboards. Many more extended Coastal deliveries and excursions since, have re-enforced this.
The Supercat 38 Sport displacement power cat offers all the benefits of slim hull technology, the shape being the product of optimized function and practical compromise. Slim hulled power cats perform well in all conditions – comparatively speaking. The slim hulls enable comparatively high speeds with relatively low power, extraordinary comfort, stability and when compared with other boat configurations, longer range is possible for the same displacement. Fuel consumption is approximately ¼ that of a planning cat at 10 knots and approximately ½ at 20 knots.
1 NM per Litre overall (for both motors) being possible with 50 four strokes. 0,55 NM per Litre overall when using 85 two strokes. (Std total tank capacity is 550 L)
Outboard motors have been proven good for: – Ease of maintenance, Lower cost, Lower weight translating into higher performance.
The Supercat 38 Sport also has a hull designed for beaching on sandy beaches, when the waves are relatively small. The 38 Sport can be configured for sport fishing, diving, cruising, whale watching, people transportation etc.
