The HeliCat® 22 is a cool-looking catamaran designed and built for rough water -- great for stable & safe, fun, fast, economical and practical water travel, island transport, resort adventure tours (with 4 side facing jump seats with seat belts), "the bass boat for rough water", or day charter/rental. Wrap her with your company logo, photos & contact info for eye-catching and fun advertising on and off the water.
Open air feel and thrill like a motorcycle but without the traffic danger! Cruises 20-30 mph in whitecap waves at 5 mpg--not possible in other boats. It is very safe in very rough water conditions because waves can wash over the boat and there is no place to store the water like a typical boat cockpit and it has two independent motor/fuel/electrical systems for redundancy. It can go 15 kn with one motor.
The new design makes this cool-looking, lightweight, stable and agile catamaran safe in rough seas, and a lot of fun with great fuel economy and near zero maintenance. Side vinyl doors keep you totally dry.
At speeds from 20-45, she burns only 4-13 gph, getting 5 to 3.5 miles per gallon, which is unusually good for a boat that can handle rough water. Combined with her stability, it makes commuting on the water practical and economical.
