For many people their only chance to ride on a Shark Cat will be when they are on a Queensland holiday and take a charter. They will marvel at the way the big boats lift on the cushion of air and spray which mixes in the tunnel as speed increases.
If power cats are your thing, these Tigers are worth a closer look. There's so much room, so much access to the water, plus so much stability. Six or seven people can fish at the same time. This is a lot of boat for a basic $475,00
All in all, if you're in the market for a purposed-built, bluewater fishing platform the Southwind SC640 Centre Cabin might be just what you're looking for. To park one of these boats on your front lawn will set you back around the $60,000 mark.
The longer I was aboard the big Southwind, the more it appealed and the more possibilities that sprung to mind. But there is one last thing that you should know about utes ... own one, and all your mates will want to borrow it.
