Welcome to the Power of Two (and three)

An amazing world of stability, comfort of ride, fuel efficiency, manoeuvrability, low wash and space. Powercats are the way to make the most of both leisure and commercial boating.

In sailing everyone knows that more than one hull provides the ultimate in stability and ride.

The same principles have been applied to smaller, powered craft – resulting in the perfect family and working boat! Our Powercats may be the new must-have for the water, but they actually have a great heritage too, designed for the tricky waters of the Isles of Scilly where they have proven very popular.

Accessibility

 

Due to the inherent stability and level deck area of multihulls they provide the perfect platform for people with physical disabilities. All our boats are designed with accessibility in mind, some are customised to specific access needs.

Powercats in the news

We’ve been pretty busy with some major projects over the last few years including a variety of custom power boats. That means we haven’t built any from the Powercat production range for some time, but the enquiries have never stopped coming in. It’s easy to see why when you read some of the rave reviews they had. It’s time to do a bit of updating and get back on the production of these superb ‘do it all’ boats.

Why use Powercat for commercial purposes?
Benefits of Powercats

Marine-based organisations, commercial fishermen and businesses across the UK are already enjoying the benefits that Powercat provides them.

Benefits of PowercatsFuel economy, safety and flexibility, combined with the ability to adapt Powercat to a wide range of commercial applications has already made it the natural choice for organisations such as the Environment Agency, Cornish fishermen and Gwynedd Council Harbour Authorities.

Having evolved from a working background around the Isles of Scilly, where Powercats operate on a daily basis in some of the most testing sea conditions, commercial Powercat has a proven pedigree and reputation for stability, solidity, ruggedness and above all an ability to get the job done. Such is the flexibility of the commercial Powercat that it can also be produced with a range of cabin versions and deck layout options specifically suited and tailored to your own individual requirements.

Thanks to its shallow draft and low wash, Powercat is equally at home undertaking river work as it is undertaking coastal work; Powercat is suited to any commercial small boat role. Its ability to operate in difficult sea conditions, thanks to its unrivalled sea holding, not only means that you can have added confidence in Powercat when the weather turns nasty, but also means you can operate longer in those conditions without having to turn for home, compared to other craft of a similar size.

For hire in the Isles of Scilly

Powercats were originally designed for the Harbour authorities in the Isles of Scilly, where they’ve been used for many years. Now, Powercats are also in use as ferries between the islands and also available for hire

The Landau Launch

 

We are very happy to announce that Multimarine Manufacturing will now be producing the Landau Launch designs, marketed by the Multihull Centre working with Winchester Yachts. 

The Landau is a very innovative, three-hull formation design originally by David Thomas and built by Peter Thomas of Cornish Crabbers. The successful Crabber designs have benefitted with a surge of orders and are currently fully booked up for 2 years with their sailboat production, a fine credit to them.

Multimarine will be entering an R&D phase initially as we explore more sustainable build and operating routes.

Concepts Overview
Boat Sharing is the way to do it

Our super efficient hulls maximize fuel economies, but still, for the time you spend on it owning a boat can add up financially. We believe that co-ownership is the best way to get the most pleasure at least cost and with shared responsibility. It also means that the boat gets more time being used and less time on the mooring or trailer, better for everyone. A number of our boats are very successfully syndicate owned. Contact us if you’d like to find out more about co-ownership.
