Features

Employing a modified "V" asymmetrical shaped bottom with broad hard chines on it’s pontoons. The design of the TomCat 255 hull does away with the tendency to lean outward in hard turns and the wallow feeling that some cats exhibit at speed. Other advantages to this design include a reduced bow wake and a reduction in the amount of spray ejected out of the tunnel (sneezing) when driving into large waves. You always have a flat, stable, dry ride with the TomCat 255.

Quick and nimble with the stability and ride of a much larger vessel. The TomCat 255 lifts up on plane quickly with very little change in attitude. On step the hull runs clean and dry with its limited bow spray being deflected by hard chines that run all the way forward. In a turn, wash along the sides is deflected by a step in the hull a few inches above the water line. The TomCat 255 runs dry, even in a very hard turn. Stability as one might expect is superb. Even in hard turns at 30+ Knots the boat cuts a clean flat turn with no feeling of slip or complaint from the hull or props.

The spacious all weather cabin provides a Queen size plus berth in the bow, (84"X64"). A dinette on the port side with a convertible forward facing seat, that makes into a roomy single berth. A full featured galley complete with hot and cold water and two burner stove. An enclosed head is located on the starboard side just aft of the galley with a Marine head and hot and cold shower. The cabin provides seating for four with 360 degree visibility out the windows at all speeds.

The aft deck boasts over 45 square feet of cockpit space and is self bailing. It has a pair of four foot insulated fish boxes with macerator pumps. The fuel tanks are located in each pontoon and can be accessed or removed through hatches under the interior cabinetry.
