Catamaran Cruisers

Published in the January 2013 Issue January 2013 News

Since 1981, Catamaran Cruisers has been guided by a simple philosophy: houseboating should be an affordable pleasure, easy to buy, easy to enjoy and easy to maintain.  Remaining true to this core principle, Catamaran Cruisers has continued to successfully navigate through many challenging conditions of the boat industry over the past 31 years.

The builder offers a full line of fiberglass catamaran multi-chambered hull houseboats ranging in size from the trailerable 8- by 31-foot Lil’ Hobo up to the 14- by 62-foot Catamaran Cruiser. Fiberglass construction, aluminum floor framing and stainless steel fasteners make this manufacturer a popular choice for saltwater use.

All Catamaran Cruiser floor plans feature full cabin width and all one-level cabins without small stairs or cramped sleeping berths. Outboard power allows for year-round use, eliminating costly winterizations and maintenance.

2012 Recap:

Catamaran Cruisers saw the return of its “traditional” houseboat buyers. Customers who had delayed purchasing realized they could build a boat “a la carte” to arrive at a price they felt comfortable purchasing, which reflects its motto, “Everything you need and nothing you don’t.”
