CraigCat Hybrid Boat Travels for 8 Hours on a Gallon of Gas

CraigCat has annouced two new hybrid boats to their lineup which the company claims can travel for eight hours on a single gallon of gas. The standard, non-hybrid CraigCats use a gallon every hour. The hybrid CraigCats cost between $5684 and $5998.

The Hybrid is powered by both gas and electric, and is available in two models: the CraigCat Hybrid and the CraigCat E2 Hybrid. Both models feature an easily removable portable gas generator, which can be used for camping, fishing and hunting. Additionally, both models are equipped with deluxe seats for comfortable side-by-side seating, convertible bimini top for shade protection, and a powerful 55-pound thrust electric outboard motor for zero water pollution. The hybrid models are easy to operate and great fun in either fresh or salt water.

The E2 Hybrid has twin 55-watt halogen docking lights, two NAV lights, anchor light and a fishing rod holder for four rods and a cooler. Both boats are super-stable and unsinkable.

"We are excited to add such an efficient model to our line of compact powerboats. We have already seen tremendous interest from the marketplace," said Robert Craig, President of Craig Catamaran.

Craig Catamaran has been manufacturing the CraigCat in Orlando, Florida, since 1990. The patented design of the CraigCat focuses on the quality of the product and the quality of the ride. The CraigCat offers a small boat with stability and comfort. Both passenger and driver experience an exhilarating ride with confidence so that they are comfortable and relaxed. It is easy to operate, easy to trailer, and easy to launch. They are the ultimate in design and performance for any recreational boating use whether it's cruising, fishing, diving, or playing.
