What’s the difference?


All Vapor Cats feature a unique bow shape that produces an extended waterline length and facilitates a finer entry angle thus giving the vessel handling characteristics typical of much larger vessels.

The unique asymmetric tunnel geometry generates spray at specific points inside the tunnel creating a high-density air/water vapor cushion that the hull then rides on. The result is a significantly dampened ride and reduced fuel consumption. Full-length longitudinal steps give the hull efficient lift and dynamic stability and the catamaran hull configuration gives superior stability in all conditions. Additionally, all Vapor Cats feature self-draining decks ensuring superior swamping protection.

All Vapor Cats are designed and built to Australian commercial craft standards (NSCV). This means that if you use your boat for private use you know that the structure, stability and floatation of your Vapor Cat will keep you and your family safe. If you are a commercial operator you will benefit from the lower towing weight of the advanced composite construction and the increased passenger capacity of the Vapor Cats compared to a similar length monohull.
