This new Seacat 13 design named Calypso X1′ is a great coastal dive boat. This new high speed aluminium catamaran showed excellent results at sea trails.
The 13 Metre Power Cat is powered by twin mercury 350 four stroke Outboard Engines giving a top speed of over 27 knots and a fully loaded speed of 25 knots with 30 passengers.
The fuel system includes 2 aft 500ltr aluminium fabricated separate fuel tanks for each hull giving a range of over 300 Nautical Miles at 20 knots.
The aft’ deck has a fold down platform which can be used for both beach landing and as a snorkeling/dive platform at sea. The dive platform is attached to a fixed platform which extends out past the outboards. This is complemented by three fresh water shower units, one overhead plus one recessed unit each side. Beside the platform is an aft’ full sized toilet compartment which is a nice change from the cramped set ups of similar vessels this size.
The main cabin has bottle storage made from fabricated aluminium. The forward cabin is fitted with Seaborn Fresco style seating with tables suitable for dining. The fordeck is passenger friendly with access through a water tight door.
Speed, comfort, fuel economy and operational options such as day cruise, dive boat, evening cruise, party boat, ferry, etc all add to the perfect outboard driven catamaran.
