The World Cat catches eyes at the Progressive Cleveland Boat Show. It has two hulls, making the bow a rectangle, rather than a triangle.

The catamaran hulls make the boat more efficient and give it a shallower draft, said Bob Dayhoff of Worldcat. The boat is wider than a similar-sized bowrider, and not as tipsy. They all have outboard motors.

“They’re great for the Great Lakes,” said Dayhoff. “They give the best rides out there when it’s a little rougher.”

Catawba Moorings began selling the Worldcat brand in 2017 and more than doubled their expected sales. The 28-foot DC-X is on a show special for $209,900.
