Twin Vee PowerCats has introduced a new 24-foot PowerCat to celebrate its 25th anniversary of building boats.
The 240 CC is the first new model release from the Fort Pierce, Florida, builder in several years. Since Joseph C. Visconti took over ownership of the company in 2016, he focused on updating the models in the Twin Vee lineup. With much of that work completed, Visconti wanted to launch a twin-engine model to celebrate the company’s milestone.
The 240 CC is based off the company’s successful 310 PowerCat. Visconti said consumers wanted a twin-engine catamaran that was easy to trailer and affordable. Using an in-house CNC 5-aixis router, Twin Vee was able to translate the same hull specifications between the 24- and 31-foot models.
Twin Vee’s newest model incorporates the smooth and stable ride the twin-hull boats are known for. Checking in at 24 feet long and 8 feet, 8 inches wide, the 240 CC can be used for fishing, cruising or entertaining.
Offering one of the widest bows in the marine industry, the 240 CC features wraparound seating with removable cushions, two 110-quart stowage boxes and cupholders. Nearby is a front console seat that also includes a 20-gallon cooler.
The 240 CC comes standard with an anodized aluminum Weblon Soft Top, protecting the console and side-by-side helm seating. An optional fiberglass T-top includes an anchor light, map reading light, spreader light, rocket launchers, an electronics box and outrigger pads.
The console includes a lockable storage that can be used as a changing room or to stow bulky items. The stowage area provides quick access to electronics and fuses.
Twin Vee makes use of the deep hulls by including 30-gallon fishboxes in the deck on the port and starboard area of the center console. The boat also includes standard a 36-gallon livewell and an insulated 10-gallon cooler box.
Power for the 240 CC Powercat are twin 115-hp Suzuki outboards set on 12-inch engine brackets for more transom space and performance. Access to the cockpit is through a starboard walk-through with entry door.
The transom offers an oversized livewell and extra cooler. Both the livewell and cooler are insulated, offering greater versatility for anglers. For those want to cool off in the water, Twin Vee included a stainless-steel board ladder.
Base price for the well-equipped boat starts around $70,000. Additional features such as the interior LED lighting package and upgraded hardtop will push up the price.
Since the company was launched in 1994, Twin Vee has built more than 7,000 boats. Visconti said when he took over as CEO of Twin Vee in 2016, the company’s focus had shifted away from quality fit and finish and was lagging in design.
Visconti revamped the management and brought manufacturing, such as marine upholstery and hatches, in-house. After updating the company’s four other models, Visconti turned his sights on launching the 240 CC.
