The Cruisecat 35 can cater for up to eight people comprising of two full size double berths over the front tunnel, a king size single in the port side hull and a dinette unit which converts easily to a queen size double. The Cruisecat 40 can cater for up to 12 people in total comfort.
The rear deck has cupboards and seating to each side. The port side having the gas locker and sink with the starboard side having the gas hot water system.
A rear boarding platform with stairs makes entry a breeze and an ideal spot for rinsing off with hot and cold water under the deck shower. The rear deck and boarding platform are just under 3m wide, this is a huge rear deck for a vessel this size. The deck also has two large access hatches which accommodates massive storage in the aft bilge area.
As you step into the cockpit through a large glass sliding door you can’t help but notice the huge galley usually found in much larger vessels. The galley is fitted with 12 volt fridge, one bowl sink with flick master tap and three burner glass splashback cooktop and oven. There is no shortage of bench space, ideal for entertaining. A large map table or bench ideal for the TV sits directly opposite the beautifully upholstered dinette unit. A raised vaulted ceiling in the forward half with 360° view windows gives a feeling of spaciousness. Down lights throughout make for a very classy internal finish.
The helm station can be designed with single or double pedestal seating. A stainless steel ladder or a spiral staircase leads to the flybridge where large wrap around seating to three sides and a central helm station make it ideal for entertaining.

Cruisecat powercats would have to be one of the most comfortable and spacious multihulls on the market. With their high tunnel clearance and incredible stability you’re guaranteed a soft dry ride in choppy conditions. Large fuel and water capacity makes long range cruising or having a group of friends stay on board a breeze.
Cruisecat ... what a fantastic boat Emar is, she is a 35ft Cruisecat powercat powered by twin 200hp Suzuki motors. Emar was named by Owen and Lynn after their grandparents, using their initials. We think she looks like a MEAR (meerkat) cat, stylish and sleek through waters.
The owners wanted a classy vessel that was low maintenance, great cruising speeds with plenty of room both inside and out to provide entertainment for family and friends. They love that the vessel as it has the ability to cruise at great speeds, turns on a dime and easily parked, and can be pulled onto the sand and back off easily.
We all know that the Cruisecat is the only multihull powercat on the market today with the largest tunnel clearance, and we all know the benefits that this provides.
For a 35ft powercat she has an large amount of room and space, you certainly don’t get that feeling of being cramped in. This is something that you would only find in a larger powercat on the market.
When you walk onto her back deck from either port or starboard you certainly get the feeling of the wide open space.
Emar is built with an access ladder to the flybridge but you can also have a spiral staircase if you desire. This is one of the personal choices you have with the Cruisecat, ability to design the vessel to your requirements.

STAY TRUE TO DESIGN WITH LEADING EDGE
The Cruisecat was designed back in 2000 with the first vessel coming off the floor in 2002. I have always been passionate about the marine industry since I was seven years old where I built my first boat out of fence palings back in New Zealand, I even took a bet with my father that the vessel would float, albeit all of my pocket money.
Fifty years later, I still get the same enjoyment of creating and designing vessels for the private and commercial sector for Australian waters. I am very passionate about my designs in creating the perfect vessel for my clients and continue to work with them very closely.
In 2006, I was awarded ‘Apprenticeship Trainer of the Year’, the three apprentices are now fully qualified and still working within the marine industry as shipwrights. In 2008, I was awarded ‘Business Of The Year Award’ and ‘Manufacturing/Engineering Award’ for the Cruisecat vessel design. We as a business need to continue to strive to keep the marine industry alive and thriving.
I understand that the marine industry is a very competitive market place. In such a competitive market the ability to change with the times as your customer’s requirements change is imperative. Flexibility is the key and the Cruisecat design provides the perfect platform for the client to build the boat of their dreams. This is why we have always custom designed and built to our client’s requirements.
Cruisecat is synonymous with high performance, practicality and endurance and is leading the way with its contemporary yet classic exterior, spacious interior, versatile and comfortable galley and dining area with spectacular views from all angles. The innovative layout and use of space on the interior and the exterior provides an unprecedented level of comfort for cruising. Cruisecat is cost effective to buy, serious value for money and has an exceptional proven resale value to the client.
The Cruisecat is an exceptionally classy power cat, and is a versatile vessel providing clients with the speed, endurance and full offshore capabilities, hand built and crafted to withstand the roughest of oceans. With high buoyance co-efficient hulls, low draft and high tunnel clearance allows the Cruisecat to move high payloads in rough conditions and very economically with offshore sea keeping abilities. She is one of the most comfortable and spacious multihulls on the market today. You will be hard pressed to find a similar vessel in the market place with the same capabilities as the Cruisecat. The Cruisecat is sure to impress the most discerning multihull buyer.
It is critical to come up with innovative leading designs to stay in front of competitors in the challenging market of the marine industry. Builders need to appreciate that the avid boat owner can look beyond the bling on the imported vessel and they certainly know what they are looking for ... the Australian quality built vessels. We have seen an insurgence of potential clients looking for the Australian made vessel and Cruisecat has proven to be high quality, value for money, design and practicality.
Cruisecat is stepping up production in 2018 and has new designs on its table for government and commercial applications. This has already sparked a huge amount of interest within the market place, even to the extent of global international interests. Potential clients are aware of the Cruisecat capabilities and the future designs and how they will play an integral part in the marine industry for the future of Australian boat building. We cater for the private sector, Cruisecat or houseboat, as well as for commercial surveys for bare boat charters, work boats and passenger ferries. All Cruisecat vessels are built to survey standards. There is currently no other power cat on the market that can perform to the standard of the Cruisecat.
Pacific Blue Cruisecat recently attended the 2017 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, where we received a large amount of interest from clients looking for the perfect vessel.
Clients were surprised that it was designed and hand build in Australia. Once they stepped on board the vessel they couldn’t believe the amount of room and space, together with the exceptional practical layout provided by the Cruisecat. One client couldn’t believe that they were standing on a vessel in that they believed that the walkway was more unstable than the vessel ... stability is the key!
James has watched other competitors rise and fall within the industry. Some of those have been at a great loss to the industry as they take their skills and knowledge with them. The marine manufacturing industry is challenging at its best as we are bombarded by foreign imports of other vessels.
Pacific Blue Cruisecat was not looking to become a major boat manufacturer but a boutique builder where they can meet client’s requirements by developing a vessel that would cater for everyone in the market place. We make first class Australian made products located in Horizon Shores Marina, in the Gold Coast region.
We have recently moved to larger facilities in order to cater for the current production program. The facilities provided at Horizon Shore Marina, with great management and staff is nothing short of excellent, it has that great community vibe. At these facilities we also provide clients with aftermarket support plus paint and fibreglass products to help both the boat builder and the DIY clients with our Boat Builders Warehouse shop, Pacific Paint & Fibreglass.
Within our business structure we also facilitate a marine survey division and marine consulting services. It is important to have a detailed inspection of a marine vessel in order to ensure that the vessel is safe for the conditions in which it is designed, and what repairs or maintenance is required. Always ensure that if you are purchasing a vessel or going to undertake repairs – always check. Some of our associates are accredited naval architects and marine surveyors, AMSA approved. Should you have problems or any queries in relation to mono/multihulls vessel we are more than happy to assist with professional advice.
