Fast cruising power – the KingCAT 85
ER Yacht Design of Vancouver, BC, Canada has refined the original design of the KingCAT 85 power catamaran for Kingship Marine of Hong Kong, and you can see the result at the London Yacht, Jet & Prestige Car Show
What you’ll find is spacious catamaran with comfortable space for eight guests and crew of two. There are two distinct versions, one with an open fly bridge and second with fully enclosed, air- conditioned fly bridge, both with the aft sun deck and jacuzzi. The aim was to produce minimalist styling with clean lines and a boat with big yacht features, a fast comfortable cruiser but very manoeuvrable and easy to handle at sea and in marina.
The KingCAT 85 is an all-aluminium yacht with powerful twin hulls, pleasing shear lines with a modern neat looking superstructure enveloped in panoramic windows all around the main deck accommodation and the fly bridge with commanding views of the whole boat.
The exterior profile features sleek streamlined hulls with plumb stems and a long waterline for speed and efficient carving in the seaway. The propulsion is twin diesels powering water-jets with a maximum speed of 28 knots, which, in combination with bow thrusters, will provide exceptional manoeuvrability.
