On show in Miami this week, the HeliCat 22 is a cool-looking catamaran designed and built for rough water.

According to its designer, the Helicat 22 is great for 'stable and safe, fun, fast, economical and practical water travel, island transport, resort adventure tours (with 4 side facing jump seats with seat belts) or day charter/rental'.
They say she can be wrapped with a company logo, photos and contact info for eye-catching and fun advertising on and off the water.
The new design makes this cool-looking, lightweight, stable and agile catamaran safe in rough seas, and a lot of fun with great fuel economy and near zero maintenance. Side vinyl doors keep you totally dry. At speeds from 20-45, she burns only 4-13 gph, getting 5 to 3.5 miles per gallon, which is unusually good for a boat that can handle rough water. Combined with her stability, it makes commuting on the water practical and economical.

The Helicat can be ordered with 60-90 hp motors of your choice or sold alone for you to select your own motors. A custom Aluminum Trailer with LED lights and disc brakes is available and usually included. She can be towed by a mid-sized car or small SUV, because she will be under 3,400 pounds on the trailer full of fuel and gear, ready to go anywhere.
