Trailerable 22-25' dual console cats?
I've posted a few times before looking for my next boat type. I might have stumbled onto something with these smaller cats...
Twin outboards, porti-potti, lots of seating, rough water handling, and trailerable! Everything I need. I really like the swim platform on the Glacier Bay- looks perfect for kids to keep them off the props. They also look like pretty shallow draft. Potomac river is 3-4' on average if you get out of the channel.
I'll be limited to 7300# trailerable weight- so fuel + trailer + boat should be under 7000 pounds.
I'll be using the boat for fresh water family outings, but I like heavy duty salt water built boats. My primary concern is rough water handling in wind blown river chop. I'm not going offshore in big rollers, but the Potomac River and even local Lake Anna can get really choppy with wind and lots of boating traffic.
The first cat I was reading up on is the Glacier bay 2240- looks great but on the forums I read that's a rolly-polly slug of a boat.
So, what cats should I look into? I'm upgrading from a 22' Donzi classic that was as impractical as a boat could be for a family outing. Couldn't even take a full size cooler out.
