World Cat 295 CC:
Easy-Riding Cat w/9'6" Beam
The World Cat 295 CC includes a standard hardtop with rocket launcher rod holders and an integrated glass windshield. The twin hulls each have sharp forward entry and high topsides and provides a safe, easy ride in conditions that keep many monohulls inside the inlet. Her 9'6" beam should give plenty of stability when drifting or trolling, and widely space twin outboards step up the maneuverability.
