Boksa & Konacat Develop 85' Fast Cat

press release
Monday, November 28, 2011

Boksa Marine Design, Inc. has teamed up with KonaCat to develop the KonaCat 85' Passenger Catamaran. 
 


This fast catamaran design can carry up to 200 passengers and 5 crew members. The particular vessel will be designed to cruise at speeds above 30 knots. The ferry will be constructed with Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) under the KonaCat Fast Build Kit System . Expected custom design and build time is just 6 months. Located in Mobile, Alabama, KonaCat is a builder of custom composite catamarans. Their fast build system ensures timely turn around times on custom designed catamarans. KonaCat does not use traditional catamaran building supplies, forgoing the use of wood and steel. This process provides private and commercial customers with vessels that are impervious to rot and corrosion. Composite construction also allows for greater cost savings during the final build phase. 


 
Vessel Particulars:
 

• Length Overall   85'-0"  (25.9 m)
• Beam Overall     33'-0"  (10.1 m)
• Top Speed        35 knots
