Product Description

 

The 290EC is a serious offshore fishing vessel for over-night trips to the blue water or for cruising to the islands. We designed the 290EC to meet the demands of hardcore fishermen while keeping the family comfortable and safe. This rugged yet comfortable power catamaran is the perfect vessel for a weekend family getaway or overnight offshore expedition. Special features include a centerline helm, bait prep and live well; an enclosed head with access from the cabin and cockpit, walkthrough Euro transom, ample storage room and comfortable cabin space for both avid fishermen and their families. Built on World Cat’s most efficient hull and with a layout similar to our successful 320EC, the new 290EC provides a smooth, dry ride with comfortable cabin amenities.
