Ultimate Power Boat for Offshore Fishing

Ultimate Power Boat for Offshore Fishing

For serious sports fishermen, the 6.5-metre Kevlacat Offshore 2400 delivers a drier and softer ride. The strong but lightweight boat is trailerable. The large fuel capacity allows for long running time, ideal for overnight fishing adventures far offshore.

Local Kevlacat dealer principal, Hayden Wyld of Wyld About Boats says, “The 2400 is the ultimate power boat for deep water fishing. The advanced design ensures a safe, comfortable ride in the most demanding sea conditions. It’s set up for serious fishing. I will take you fishing in the Kevlacat 2400 and you will instantly want one”.

Wyld explains why his company is having great success selling this fishing-friendly catamaran. “We recently kitted up a 2400 Kevlacat Offshore and went game fishing with some interested buyers. We ventured way out offshore with these guys who are experienced blue water tournament game fishermen. The conditions were not kind, but the Kevlacat made easy work of the harsh conditions and demonstrated astonishing stability.”

Wyld explains the reason behind the boat’s impressive handling. “In these types of tough conditions, the catamaran hulls are far superior offshore than even larger mono-hulls. The high-sided dual hulls pierce through the waves, which buffers the impact and shield the crew from overspray by a five-piece windscreen and a solid hard top with roll-up clears. These hulls are bullet proof, made from Kevlar cloth and vinylester resins between layers of fibreglass, making them the ultimate power boat for fishing in deep water.”

The Kevlacat 2400 is sold as a fishing layout. Wyld explains, “The 2.5-metre beam means a large cockpit space that allows plenty of space for 4-6 fishermen without getting in each other’s way. The fishing platform is uncluttered and everything can be hidden away. Built with self-draining deck and a handy deck wash, the cockpit has a bait station and cutting board on the transom, four rod holders mounted on the gunwale and another six on the hard top.”

And if you want to fish up front, there is a non-skid walk-around with high rail. The standard setup offers a large kill tank to port and ice box and/or storage space to starboard.  Wyld says, “Even more, it’s the thoughtful little things like a dedicated moulded recess for the EPIRB and fire extinguisher. The boat is fitted with Reelax seating and foot rests that make it so comfortable.”

If one of the crew wants to take a nap, the lock-up cabin is huge and can easily fit two large men on cushioned bunks either side. There is a toilet under the port-side bunk and a central hatch for good ventilation.

Wyld points out, “The Kevlacat 2400 allows for all required navigational aids and gauges for monitoring your location and the boat’s performance. When we go outside, this package offers a low fuel consumption at cruising speed of 32 knots

The Kevlacat 2400 is a tried and proven vessel choice of the Volunteer Coast Guard and Volunteer Marine Rescue—proof that its performance and sea-keeping ability are superior to anything in its class.

Wyld reminds, “Before you buy a boat like this, be sure to test how the boat performs in not-so-perfect conditions.” Wyld About Boats has a brand new demonstrator fitted with the new 150hp 4 stroke Mercury’s on display and ready for your sea trial.
