Marine News from the Great Lakes

Exceptional Catamaran Ride Now Available in Michigan

Published: Tuesday, July 25, 2017

With popularity that has expanded north from Florida to the North East U.S., the smooth riding benefits of power catamarans are now coming to Michigan.

Joe Curtis, General Manager of Traverse Bay Marine, is proud to announce World Cat’s newest dealership. Traverse Bay Marine, in one of the premier Great Lakes boating destinations, now offers the full 12-model line of World Cat boats, from 23 to 32 feet, with different styles to meet boater needs.

World Cat is the world’s leading manufacturer of power catamarans, which use a unique dual-hull design to provide remarkable benefits compared to mono-hull boats, and which are particularly tailored to boating on the ever-changing Great Lakes.

Power catamarans, long preferred in challenging locations such as Australia, South Africa, and Florida, are remarkably versatile and capable of handling a broad array of changing conditions, including smoothly cutting through chop.

In the too-brief Great Lakes boating season, a World Cat will enable more boating days, as it doesn’t require a perfect day to make it a perfectly enjoyable day.

In addition to a remarkably smooth, dry ride, cats are safer, more fuel efficient, draw less draft, have more room, and are more stable than similar sized mono-hulls.

Traverse Bay Marine has a highly regarded, customer-focused service department as well as being an authorized Yamaha Service center. Not only will Traverse Bay Marine match each boater with the best boat and accessories, they are committed to each owner’s complete satisfaction.
