The World Cat 250 DC combines a great overall ride, with fishability and features for the family. This power catamaran uses patented technology to aerate the water flowing between the two hulls, to soften the ride like no other power catamaran I have tested. The Hydro-Ram softens the ride out in the rough wave action you typically see offshore, which means the family will enjoy the ride as much as you do.

World Cat 250 DC (2007-2010) Captain's Report

World Cat 250 DC

If you’re looking for a very capable bowrider, then you owe it to yourself to check out the World Cat 250 DC.

The World Cat 250 DC combines great ride, fishability and family fun into one neat package. This power catamaran uses patented technology to aerate the water flowing between the two hulls, thereby softening the ride like no other power catamaran I have tested. The Hydro-Ram softens out the ride in the typical offshore rough wave action which means the family will enjoy the ride as much as you do.

World Cat 250 DC

One Fast Cat... The 250 DC has the ability and versatility to take on what's thrown its way.

Forward Layout

The front deck can serve as a large casting platform. Our test boat had an optional windlass mounted between the large capacity line lockers on the port and starboard sides. All horizontal surfaces have an aggressive grip surface for sure footing. Seating up front can be roomy enough for the entire family to relax together, or for someone to work fish from the safe and more comfortable cockpit floor. Under the front bench seat is a large capacity storage box. More storage is on either side and a table can be set up for snacks in the center.

A pedestal mounted table can be lowered to accommodate a sunpad, or removed for more room.

The starboard box reaches all the way into the helm storage so you can safely store your favorite fishing rods inside. The stereo mount sticks into the top of the port side, but there is still plenty of room for gear to store in here. The walkthrough is plenty wide for the kids to run through or for someone to race up front to gaff your fish when you reel it in.

We had the optional fiberglass T-top with Taco Outriggers. Seating underneath is either the standard captain’s chairs or you can opt for a back-to-back ski lounger on the companion side.

World Cat didn’t leave out the obligatory head/changing room in the design.

The port side in the cockpit is a handy space with a deep changing room and Porta-Potti inside the compartment. The optional stereo is mounted in here with a remote at the helm. Ventilation is provided by a power vent that exhausts at the top, behind the windshield. I would rather see that exhaust outside the cockpit, but it does work.

Behind the Wheel

The helm is well laid out for comfortable work as well. There is plenty of room to set up the electronics the way you want them. We had the Honda digital gauges to monitor the engines. Because we had the T-top, we also had an extra electronics box overhead. Above the hydraulic steering is a large space for flat panel electronic mapping systems as well as a 12-volt socket for portable gear. Next to the helm is a raw water connection as well as a fresh water hand shower for rinsing off after a swim.

In the cockpit, we had optional removable benches that quickly set up or pop out and fold away for more fishing room when needed. The top of the stern held a 31 gallon livewell with light, as well as a 300 qt fish box to store your catch or hold a bunch of cold beverages for a day out with the family.

Battery, fuel/water separators, battery management switches and access to shut-offs are all easy to get too behind panels and doors at the back. Power outlets are in each corner for power trolling gear, (or maybe a blender for iced beverages.) If you have any divers in the clan, they are really going to like the swim platform and dive ladder on this model.

Specifications and Ride

The 250 DC measures 26’ (7.92 m) LOA with a trailerable beam width of 8'6" (2.6 m). She weighs in at 5,950 lbs (2,969 kg) and carries 200 gallons (757 L) of fuel in her twin 100 gallon (378.5 L) tanks. Her twin hulls only draw only 12” (30.5 cm) with the engines trimmed out of the water. When I ran her, I found she was out of the hole in only 5.3 seconds and up to 30 mph in only 8.4 seconds. She was riding comfortably at cruise at 14.3 mph and reached a maximum of 42.7 mph. At cruise, she will deliver 458 miles on a tank of fuel.

For family fun and fishing power, the 250 DC really puts it all together nicely.
