"The sharp entry cut through the waves, the flared bows kept us dry, the big windshield and the bimini kept us comfortable even in the drizzle, and it was a hoot. It's a solid feel, with no slamming or rattling. The whole thing is pretty quiet. Even out in those conditions, flying over the waves, we could carry on a normal, albeit excited conversation.
I pulled tightly into a left turn , no skidding, no slippage, none of what you thought you'd get from a jet. I headed into the wind and waves at full bore and let go of the wheel , it tracked remarkably well, thanks to a short skeg in front of the jet intake. There was little banking in the tightest turns, and at rest, it presented a very stable platform, with little wallow in the troughs." - July 2002, Northeast Boating Magazine
440hp Yanmar diesel coupled to Ultra Jet 305 jet drive
The new Katama does things that jet boats are notorious for not doing. Like performing excellently in big seas. Like maneuvering in tight turns with no fishtailing or skidding. Like tracking like a laser-guided missile. Yet, it does all the neat things that jet boats are thought to do well, like maneuver in tight spaces with a touch of a joy stick." - July 2002, Northeast Boating Magazine
